OOPS, i forgot to upload these two exciting images of me dipping the PVA covered base into the sand and what it will look like once you have dipped it.
One thing to be aware of is that you dont want the metal base of the figure to form a step in the sand as this looks a bit pants. This is why you use a mix of course sand and fine sand. If you do have steps in the sand just dob a bit of PVA onto the area and dip it again this should fill it out a bit.
Dont try painting the sand until it is really dry as it will pull it off the base and you will ruin it!
AHPC VIII-Terrain Preparation - I usually do not do a preparation post for the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, but the addition of terrain as an entry this year is a big plus for me...
