Thanks for the interest guys.


Jim, Joel Bragdon gives demos at various national conventions. He created a system for foam rock casting that I invested in and love. I was always averse to plaster castings or carving my own rocks, so never really went towards that kind of scenery. With the Bragdon system, I'm looking for opportunities for huge rock faces...It's neat, controllable, and you can re-shape landforms and castings anytime with a heat gun. I never could find any great YouTube stuff, but I'm sure there's some...his website is http://www.bragdonent.com...I don't think there's a way to "dabble" in it as it's basically a completely different group of chemicals. I can't say enough about it.
