I glued some styrofoam sheets together and let them dry over the weekend. Using sandpaper, I started shaping the hills and slopes. I'm planning on using this set as 2 separate locations. The rectangle in the middle is where the grave of Hanna's Aunt will be. I'm making the mound of dirt as a separate piece that can fit into the rectangle so that it's easy to remove. I've got some more shaping to do, and then I will be able to start with the foliage and ground/dirt. I recommend a shopvac. It will get messy.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
