Blacktop for Pumkin City! Who ever thought that
pile of spackle and hydrocalc
would turn into this? Not Irene. By the way, skip the hydrocalc and use plain
spackle with a little soap mixed in for flexibility. It stays wet long enough to
work with. An added bonus, trains actually run on the embedded track! Irene used
a brownish paint made for sponging walls mixed with some black airbrush pain.
The sponging paint gives the blacktop a slight sheen, just like in real life!
