Since covering basing extensively for the $5+ Patrons in ‘At the Painting Desk’ series, I thought I would share the basing love, and provide some basing tutorials for everyone else.
This video shows from start to finish, the methods required to build and paint a glowing lava pool with a minimum of supplies. Only basic things like epoxy putty (green stuff), cork and white glue are needed to create some very thematic basing. Even beginners can start making great bases with very little in the way of supplies and experience.

All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.
