Black lava texture gel for bases

I saw this tip a little while ago while watching Robin Fitton on his 'grunts' you tube channel.

 Robin was using the gel to base up his 15mm sci-fi figures. I will see how I get on with it, so far so good. These large 80mmx60mm bases have a lot of wide open flat space to fill and this gel could be the ticket.
I will use the gel as the first layer to add some contours to the base. Next up will be a little sand and then flock...you know the drill.

I've read about this stuff before. Keep us all updated.

I wonder if you could mix a light sand/grit with it to improve the 'ground' look. I might try that...

Good idea. I have been using Vallejo - Fine White Pumice, for my bases. I'm only half way through the jar. Keep up the excellent blog.

I use the Golden Course pumice gel, and mix my base color into it. Strong, easy to use, and the size of the "sand" in it works well with 28mm scale. I also use it on my canvas gaming matts to add texture and jive with my basing.

looking good!
