​​From Dormant to Active Volcano


In this video we will be renovating a toy dinosaur volcano piece to become an awesome active volcano for our fantasy gaming. To begin, we add a great deal of sand to the three craters as well as to some of the flat places. After that, we put down two layers of black base coat. On top of that we add 6 or 7 layers of dry brushing moving from dark browns up to light tans. The holes in the volcano craters are painted with layers of red, orange, yellow, and white to give the lava illusion. Finally, the piece is given a few details with brown grass. The final product is a beautiful volcano that will serve as the centerpiece for many fantasy battles!
