Wanted something to use out doors to take pictures on in proper light so I came up with this.

This experiment cost next to nothing.

A small piece of 9mm ply found in the garage, some spare Hornby set track, some Pva, ash from BBQ.

Spread glue on ply and place in BBQ .

Spread ash from BBQ liberally over glue.

Remove and leave to dry.

 

the glue has dried and the surplus ash has been knocked off and a wagon run over to check nothing fowls.

i dont think it looks too bad for an experiment for next to no cost.

with a bit of scatter added and some longer grass and weeds it will be just like the real thing.

now we have added some green scatter it looks a whole lot more unloved.

I have added some Woodland Scenics ballast in places to see how it looks and to replace patches of ash that did not stick too well.

With long grass added
