No problem here on the blog. Here is something I tried out for a project you'll soon see. I'd ballasted 009 track with some Woodland Scenics grey ballast, and felt it looked a bit plain.
Wondering what I could do to improve matters, I decided that working on the layout itself was a bad idea, at least until I could be sure of the results.
Solution - make up a short test piece. Stick a bit of track to some foam, spray it brown and then ballast. Just like the stuff on the model.
Then I messed around with dry-brushing and powders to see how they looked.
Horray for test pieces!
