On the Workbench – Digging In

Dugouts

My dug-in positions to date have been built up from the table. These latest positions will be low lying, suitable for the desert. As can be seen, they are simply made from cork. Cut out circles or squares with a sharp craft knife, then line with a row of small squares that are cut out roughly with scissors.

All that remains is the applicalion of texture and colour to taste. The web is full of ernest tutorials for the perfect shade of Klatchian Salt Marsh desert. The main trick is to stick a heavy weight on the piece to prevent the cork from bending as the PVA glue dries.
