Lava Block

About: DM Scotty's 2.5d dungeon tile system is great for low cost gaming. - The DMG is also a great place for gami...

The only difference between the Fire Block and the Ice Block are both the same. The difference is in the color of paints used.This is a small lava block or smoldering ember for use in RPGs, war gaming, or miniature gaming. This is a very easy construction. If you have some craft paints and a hot glue gun than the cost will basically be free.

Step 1: Stuff to Have on Hand

Things you will need:

hot glue gun craft paint/paint brush scissors paper egg carton mod podge

Step 2: Cut the Egg Carton

Step 3: Cut Cardboard for Base

Cut a piece of a box for a base.

Step 4: Hot Glue It

Glue the carton piece to the base. Seal up any seams. Drag some of the hot glue along the base to add some texture.

Step 5: 1st Paint Coat

Give it a hit of yellow paint, making sure to get the paint in the nooks and crannies.

Let it dry.

Step 6: 2nd Paint Coat

Dry brush it with some red or orange and let it dry.

Step 7: 3rd Paint Coat

Hit it with some black to make it looks like ash or burnt out wood/lava. Let it dry.

    I made that and the ice one at the same time. Using some different color schemes think it can be used for a bunch of stuff. A dead flesh with some reds and blues be good for a zombie or horror. Get some neon colors some sort of alien pods.

    Just going for a cheap and dirty thing that you can crank out in a few minutes (or however long it takes for the paint to dry).
