I have to start somewhere... sometime....
rock is everywhere right now. In my shoes, on the floor, even stuck to my belly.
I think I got some of it on the RR?
I came up with the bright idea of mixing up my own blacktop. Prototype one is a mix with an unidentified gallon jug of black paint or maybe gel? I bought it so long ago I don't remember what it is. I thought it was an ink type die but now I think it's a gel for staining plaster rocks.
Anyways it was too thick so I dumped in a bit of water to create my own mix. I either invented something cool, or I just made a mess!
It's just a test patch and I may have to scrap it if it doesn't dry right. I may swap to a black paint mix, or go the spray paint route?
Funny to me that everything I try takes a full day of drying to know if the results will work. So I want to move forward faster than I'm able. Our grandson started the ballast but at his age, he doesn't bear with it long.
I can run the latest app with the trains. I can fix the average mechanical problems, and do some basic wiring. Scenery, is something I just haven't got a clue with. Hopefully I'll get better before I attack the mainlines.
