It can be quite rewarding when you make your own model railroad scenery, and even more so when you actually created it from the bare materials. Rock molds are no different.

There is an art to selecting good looking rocks for making rock molds but it’s much easier than you think, a bit of trial and error and you’ll be creating your very own realistic rock masterpiece.

These rocks will fit any scale and any type of scenery… from rainforest to desert, rocks are everywhere and there’s no better way to add custom rocks to your model railroad, war gaming terrain or scenery diorama than making them from scratch yourself.

The main product required for this project is ‘Woodland Scenics’ Latex Rubber, a fantastic and very versatile product, I not only use it for these rocks but I’ve also used it on model trees and I also use it to make copies of buildings and other building material.

The rocks I use in the video are ‘Sandstone’, it’s perfect for this job due to it being very easy to chip away at and you can manipulate it to get the perfect shape to your rock.

I hope you enjoy watching and if you would like to help support me and these videos you might like to check out my patreon page.
