As I was going though some of my boxes, I decided to pull out the old Dagobah playset and give it a good once over. Of course, the swamp piece had disintegrated so that needed to be replaced right away. I decided against using a similar foam and went with a thick piece of scrapbooking foam in a nice, matching tan colour. I really didn't see any need to "sink" something in the swamp so I just basically filled in the hole.
The big and fun part of the project was to add a nice paint wash to the base. I used a flat olive green and a flat brown. I then used a different flat brown for the tree roots. I used a flat grey on the rocks and also coloured them with the olive to give it a more mossy and textured look. I painted Yoda's hut with the grey, dry-brushed it is a flat tan and the olive. I put a bright flat yellow in the "window".
The floor of the hut was dry-brushed with the grey and the "stump" table inside was painted with the flat brown on the outside and did a "wash" with the flat tan for the exposed wood rings, avoiding the spoon and the bowl.
I added some olive, flat green, tan and grey to the tree portion.
My next project is going to be the Ewok village once that arrives from my eBay seller.
