Slide of the month extra - Philmont Comanche Creek


July 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1.5 hours

Original design:  Bill Macfarlane

Day 6 and we are on the trail heading for Comanche Creek a non staffed trail camp next to a stream. The good news is we will have plenty of water but the downside might be a swarm of mosquitoes. Perhaps the furthest campsite away from the stream might be in order. We just might take in the Homesteading program at Crooked Creek while we are there.

Made from a piece of southern (pallet) pine the stream was made by hollowing out the area and then using super glue gell to place the rocks. Once the glue dried, I used regular super glue to fill the area and then sprinkled sand into the area to form the stream bed. Again a period of waiting for the glue to dry. To finish off the stream I used a couple of tubes of regular superglue to fill the area forming the water in the stream. I allowed 24 hours for the glue to dry which formed several ripples as it dried. (Nice!).  I used hobby paints to paint the scene, waterslide paper to letter, and a couple of coats of poly to finish it off.
