Cork Bases

Just a quick post.... I decided to experiment with using corkboard for basing. I picked up some cheap cork tiles from the local craft store and followed the excellent tutorial from the Brushthralls site. Here's the end result, which I am quite happy with given the amount of effort needed.

The corkboard I used is actually pretty decent quality, which has plusses and minuses. It did result in a rather flat-topped rock, which looked somewhat unnatural at first. So, I added some moss to the top and that seemed to really help the overall look. Probably next time I'll use more moss and put some on the sides, as well as put together 2 "levels" of cork.
