For coal yard modeling
Big & small heaps.

(no photos)

I watched piles of coal being modeled at the club, and although the early stages of it seemed like a futile exercise, the end product is a work of art.

First, black FlexSeal was sprayed around the area, and on fine wire mesh 'forms' in the shape of heaps and mounds.
Then more FlexSeal was poured from a can over it all.
While it cured, (48 hrs) coarse & fine model coal was drizzled on.
Finishing touches were applied the same as track ballast to create random heaping, trailings, and 'shovel-outs'.
Very realistic.
