First I worked out how much glue/water was needed for each board, which given the first coat is at a 2:1, water to glue, ratio means that I needed 160ml of water and 80ml of glue (quite unrealistic).
So half-wingin it, I applied the glue to patches of the board, then spread sand about that patch.
Unfortunately the sand dried in patches, leaving 'wooden' looking ground in areas. To solve this I rubbed the sand freeing the lose bits, then re-applied a layer of glue with the freed bits of sand. That now looks like:
|The low hill from a model's eye view|
|Supposed to be the rocky patch|
The next step is to spray black,
then apply the basecoats,
before applying the final paint,
And then the flocking and varnish to finish.
But before I get into painting, flocking and the likes after the black primer is applied I'll move on to the next board, until all four are done :) .
A smaller instalment this week, but I have been putting together a list of names ready for Gondor in flames!!
