Tile grout as a scenery material
A few years ago when re-building one of my Ntrak modules, I was wondering if I could use some left over tile grout I had the way one uses commercial scenery products. I was able to find several references to it's use in the model railroad press and on line so I gave it a try and it worked very well for me.
I use sanded tile grout for a first layer of base scenery. The grout already has an adhesive in it but I still sprinkle it over diluted white glue.
I would need to buy many bags of this product to get the amount of material contained in the bag of grout shown above.
Arizona Rock & Mineral offers many fine scenery products and plenty will be used on the layout for top scenery and track ballast. Some of the areas I can use this bag for would be dry creek beds and sand bars in the river.
