After waiting a couple of days for the previous work to dry I diluted pva glue 75% to 25% water and painted it on the cutting sides and the top of the landscape.Then finely sieved soil was sieved over the pva glue and left to dry.When the soil had dried to add texture to the cutting raw umber and raw sienna Jo Sonja acrylic paint is mixed to suit the colour that is required then painted in vertical strokes to both sides of the cutting and left to dry.After that pastel chalks were used to give the cutting a variation of colour again vertical strokes some with dry chalks and some with wet.When that is done and you are happy with the result dulcote is sprayed on the cutting sides to seal the sides.Remember practise makes perfect. When the cutting is finished on go the Mini Nature tufts and Polak static grass which is explained in a previous post.I hope that this brief explanation is of use to someone.
