With an aborted try at creating a rough lane in front of the Inn I thought it about time that I tried again.
This time I used the dust that is always present in a bag of real ballast. This means that the tea strainer comes out and the lot is sieved so that the dust is separated from the decent sized chips.
The surface of the lane is given a light brushing of ground colour and given a sprinkling of dust before it dries. The surplus is Hoovered off (This Hoovers name is Henry so not really a real Hoover) after drying. Then a liberal coat of neat Elmers Glue brushed to an even coating. Then cover with more
dust and again when dry Hoover ( No I won't go through it again) the surplus off.
This has left an interesting surface, which, with a bit of weathering will look the part.
By the way- can you spot the Yeoman Models Telephone Box?
The flora is again by Mininatur- I must look for these again as I have tried to replicate them but too fiddly.
