    Hello,
    I try to do a small tutorial showing a couple of techniques.
    It's just a small portion of coblestone street.

    For this purpose, we can use a piece of high density foam.

    In this foam, and using a simple pencil we draw some lines ...

    The space between lines depend of the scale.

    Then, we draw the vertical lines to made te cobblestone.

    This is, more o less, the result.

    Next, and using the pencil, we draw the footprint.

    Using something blunt, not sharp, we press inside the footprint.
    Pressing with our fingers is also a good idea.

    Our Godzila footprint's.

    Now, we put a few drops of black colour with alcohol.
    More alcohol than colour. Aprox. 1 drop color 100 drops alcohol.

    Cover all surface with this mixture.

    Continue....

    Cover with 6 or 7 layers... just stop when you like the aspect.


    IMG_20160817_165901.jpg
    With a red color, also very diluted in alcohol, paint some cobblestone in
    a group of 3 or 4.

    IMG_20160817_170047.jpg
    Repeat but with brown color without diluted.

    IMG_20160817_170131.jpg
    Before the paint dries, mix de colours with a brush,
    always in the same direction.

    IMG_20160817_170319.jpg
    Lets dry de paint.

    IMG_20160817_170452.jpg
    Again, we paint some cobblestone, this time with green colour.

    IMG_20160817_170730.jpg
    Using dry brush, paint in black the contour and inside of the footprint.

    IMG_20160817_171908.jpg
    Put just a drop of glue between some cobblestones, and glue
    some pieces of grass.

    IMG_20160817_172009.jpg
    A small plank is also crushed....

    IMG_20160817_172149.jpg
    And... that's all.

    Hope you like it, and found useful. I'm able to answer any question you
    need.
    I would be happy to answer any questions you have about it. If I can help, do not hesitate to ask.
    Regards

    Hehe, this is a cool idea! :)

    The principle is excellent but next time I would make the tiles smaller to give a better sense of scale. (At the moment it looks like an imprint of a Babyzilla.) ;)

    Hi. !
    In principle, the idea was to make only the cobblestones.
    But,once I was finish, I thought... it's very simple as a tutorial. So, I decide to do something different. This is the reason of the difference between tiles size and footprint.
    :)
    Thanks
    Regards
    Xavier

    Very nice, and through too! I can see you have a very clear thought process on the execution of your projects. A great foundation to work from and a lesson to others. Thank You!! :)
