After the initial mess was cleaned up I took another stab at “Slop and foil” rocks. This time I made sure the plaster had the consistency of sour cream. The result was much better.

layout blog. It consists of slathering plaster onto the surface you want rocks on and then taking a piece of tin foil, wadding it up, re-flattening it and sticking it into the aforementioned plaster. Well it sounded great in theory but my plaster was too viscous and ran everywhere. When I found that the plaster had slopped all over the track despite the masking tape, I almost hit the ceiling. I tell you I was about ready to go shopping for a new hobby. After a trip to the pool to cool down for a while, I spent the rest of the evening chiseling plaster off the tracks and cursing at the walls.
