Using the Freehand Router I was able to carve not only the channel for the water, but also the rock texture for the cliffs. The Freehand Router’s large blade size helped to make quick work of the carving.After carving, I applied Styroplast to all of the surfaces before applying rocks and spackling. The Styroplast was perfect for preserving the carved detail while greatly reinforcing its strength. The Styroplast also cleaned up the back side of the piece giving it a professional finish. The finished piece ready for shipping. The Styroplast coating accepts paint very well and provided a firm surface for attaching structural details. These close ups show what a great finish the Styroplast gave to the rock carving. The detail of the carving is preserved due to the thin coating the Styroplast produces, and its now able to handle the rough handling that gamers give their terrain. Thank you Hot Wire Foam factory for providing great products and service.
