Tarmac




With the ground-works complete around Thornycroft, it was about time we showed you some picture of the tarmac (and cobbles) as well as the outcome of "filling" in the points.

The DAS clay had a sprinkling of fine sand to add depth and texture as mentioned in previous postings, and then coloured with a handmade mix of white and grey tester pot emulsion to create random tone across the layout. This was then further weathered with black and white pastels.

It's possibly ended up a little darker than I was expecting, but it's pleasing to the eye, and looks realistic from viewing distance and close up.
