Starting Scenery: Earth

Starting Scenery: Earth or Ground Layer

The earth or ground layer is key. It hides the construction layers beneath and is the first scenery layer to be modelled. My favourite product is tile grout; it comes in many different earth tones, is easy to apply and very robust. It can easily be used for terrain for wargaming if you use a dropper bottle of white glue too.

Tile grout in a variety of colours:

If you are struggling to find the right colour then try mosaic suppliers – I used that for my brick dust in the Kino diorama.
