Welcome Jungle visitor to another short step by step of something. First, before i start i want to recommand this article to you by MIG Jemenez "Modulation and Weathering", thanks to Raffa for showing me. It is a great article and i love those words to the end - here is a little quote - be sure it is worth to read it full:

"Finally, I would like to add that for me , the modelling is like a Hollywood movie: I like to enjoy it, I want to have fun and I want dream during 90 or 120 minuts. This make me happy. But if a model doens't make me happy, even if it is super realistic, then, that model have not value to me. Is just BORING!"

Now to the topic - coins, bricks, earth
I would like to add super glue, Milliput, plastic card, aluminium foil and a wooden socket to it and you be able fully prepared of the basework to come. 

As a little boy i was collecting money from different countries. As i am an adult now i still try to collect money but growing older doesn't make it easier after you know what's it all about with that strange thing called money. Whatever, i still got those coins and was happy to find them a while ago. I do like those reliefs on those coins, not that there are famous persons on it, just straight the relief and thought about to see a coin included somewhere in my miniature madness.

I used bricks by juweela in scale 1:35 and glued the coin up to the piece of plastic card. Afterwards the bricks have been placed and glued. Some have been destroyed and cut in shape to make them fit in this circled adjustment.

After the glue was dry i turned the piece upside down, glued some aluminium foil in place, put Milliput on top of it (the foil makes me need less Milliput) and hit everything with common earth.


Easy to build, nothing special, but a coin included :) - here comes an older version where i have already used a coin:

Keep on happy painting!
Best Wishes 

Some wise words in the end by legendary Bob:

Bob Marley on how to love a woman

“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”

- Bob Marley
