That looks great, I would like to know more about how you textured and painted the terrain.

Thanks guys, the surface is paintable caulk from Home Depot. I basically smear I on by hand (little water to wet your hand), then I use a large stiff bristle brush to dab at it (not brush but dab). It helps if the brush is a little wet. The wetter the brush the less it will lift the caulk. So by varying this technique you create the random stipple look. A light hand sand after this to remove the sharper peaks of caulk.

Then the entire surface is painted a light tan color. Washed with a formula suggested by David Kuijt which is watered down white glue and some red brown paint. I have always used Modge Podge, but after trying Elmers on this large project I am sold on it for the wash coating.

Dry brush with an ivory, then a lighter off white. Another coat of less watered down white glue to protect the surface and while still tacky thro some blended earth flocking and loose gravel.
