The road sections have been under coated! Next up is painting and texturing.
This is one of the cracks in the road painted
Here are two pieces painted
I painted the road sections with a mixturen of sand and paint to give the road a road surface. Now I'm torn between mixing in sand with paint (I forgot the PVA which probably didn't help) and laying a layer of sand down first then painting it after it has dried.
Next came the road markings. I wanted a slightly faded look as I mostly play post apocalypse gaming. The only way I could think of was using a sponge to dab the paint on. I made up a stencil and dabbed away.
I dabbed out the road marking and it looks pretty good. The corner marking was a little tricky though.
Next I wanted a manhole cover, I'd looked around at a few options. I went along the lone of using green stuff flat in a circle and pressing a grid down on it. I was only really happy with one that came out so added that one.
3 attempts but only happy with the top one.
The manhole cover was painted in gun metal and a coat of ink. I then stuck it to one of the road sections. With all that done time to stick road pieces to the urban game board tiles.
After a night of glue drying (weighted down with items from the kitchen much to my wife's dismay he he he) they were all sorted.
The 3 boards together
I think they look ok ☺
Have a great day folks!
