The modelling of tarmac - an experiment
One of the reasons for my returning interest in the hobby developing into actual model making, was the discovery of Kathy Millat’s tutorials on youtube. One of hers concerned modelling tarmac using textured spray paint. Whilst browsing hobby crafts selection (actually looking for something to match railmatch’s sleeper grime, which turned out to be plasticote’s Matt chocolate) I found a tin of this (1). Plasticote’s textured paint, in stone. Time for a play.
So, this is what I’m aiming for (2) (found on google, from the website of the Haslemere Herald). Take an offcut of mounting board card and give it a coat (3). Leave it to dry and break up the edges with a little glue and Woodland Scenics foam (4). Finally with a posed Oxford Diamond T (5).
Think we’re getting somewhere with this. More playing is required.
