well, here we go:
below my 12 foot trestle there is some landscape needed. rough, rocky terrain.
as mentioned in the last posts of the mountain thread, i am trying out various ways to achieve that.
thanks to a little, insignificant miscalculation i had to glue wooden bases below each trestle. logically i dont want those to show up, once the part of the layout is done.
so i have to “landfill” about one inch of height and have to make it with a rough surface.
now i tried something new.
glueing down pieces of styrofoam as base, i then cover them with surgical plaster, that comes in ready-made rolls.
i did about three foot length with a roll that did cost nearly three $us.
it is easy to work with, just cut off a length, hold it in hot water and lay it upon the styrofoam.
but, (isn’t there always a “but”?) for stability, i need either to apply a second layer, or to paint it with additional plaster or filler.
that makes me think, it might be cheaper, to put wet cloth of any type, and paint that.
