The making of an ancient wall

Greetings everyone,
Moving right along with this new battlefield, I thought I would start with a section of an ancient wall.
I don't know if i'll use it, if I do I'll probably add to it. Styrofoam and paper works for me. Here's a few shots of the progress.

  2. Have you done some cuts after gluing the paper?
    Well... I would do the same and then I would have to paint it. This saves a lot of time, right?

    1. After I glue the paper to the styrofoam, I cut around it…then using a burnisher, I go over the cuts to push them into the styrofoam. This give it a dimensional look, then I go over the cuts with sepia.
      If all this wasn't done it would just look like paper glued to styrofoam.
