Foothills of Miller

Work continues in the lumber town of Miller, as Rod so aptly put it "it's amazing how fast things change from week to week". Matt and Don (there may have been others I didn't see) applied plaster cloth to the new foothill area in a new method, at least to me. Instead of the messy dunk and smear pieces of plaster cloth one at a time, they cut and laid pieces of plaster cloth to the forms (cut and shaped layers of ceiling tile) then sprayed it with water and brush blended it into shape. They also incorporated two dirt roads into the hills to connect to the, yet unpainted, roads on the backdrop. This is yet another way of adding small details to help make the overall scene believable.
