Ok, I have been pondering over this one for a while now and can't seem to come up with a solution. I need to animate a couple of shots of limestone/ sandstone eroding as if we were looking at a time lapse. The shots have to range from one that looks like hills or mountains (but without any plants)but also close ups of a stone statues face.

I thought of casting in Some way with sand paired with something else to hold it together enough to keep its shape but soft enough to work on with a stiff brush frame By frame untill it crumbles.

Any idea's anyone?

That's beautiful!  It certainly doesn't look like 10 cm wide!  

Hi Jasper. What a lovely shot!. Great method with ultimate control!! Ultimately you could even pull out shapes out of stone! In the past I've used sound waves to break down clotted powder by placing the subject over a vibrating speaker. Also shot on macro with a similar light box lighting source. It works very well too but there is no control over the outcome. more of a random process.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BsvvR2ZpdQ

Nice effect! The statue face eroding idea is intriguing. Very creative! 

Nailed it, Jasper. Fantastic execution.

Well done ! Thank you for posting the results.

Great to hear that you like it guys!

And there is some really cool stuff you did there Gustavo. Some shots have a very similar vibe to this eventhough it's a very different process. Thanks for sharing!
