Emsingen Hinteraecker

Emsingen Hinteraecker isn't really modelled on the layout. Hinteraecker is the area behind the maintenance facility and represented mostly by some fruit trees, some grass, a few decidious trees and bushes along the tracks. I will try to paint a small field on the backdrop. We'll see how that works out.

The ground is my usual mix of 5 parts vermiculite, 4 parts plaster of paris, and 3 parts water, plus Tempera powder paint (adapted from Joe Fugate's video series). Instead of brown, which turns into a redish tone when mixed with the plaster, this time I tried black. Two spoons of black tempera is one spoon too many.

I will completely redo this section of the backdrop.
