Well I'm finally getting to that point in my layout construction. In the good old days dyed sawdust was the normal scenic material. Today we have other materials available such as ground foam many grades and colors. Maybe there is other stuff available also I'm not aware of. I have to get everything by mail order so ideas for homemade scatter would be appreciated. I'd be quite interested in what everyone else uses and how you get it to stick to the plywood, foam, plaster or whatever. If anyone would care to share their ideas or methods I can assure you it will be appreciated.
