How to Apply Ballast

  • This is the way we do it now whither you have plywood, foam or plaster scenery base.
  • Before applying scenery, brush on full strength glue (Elmer’s white or Carpenters) first.
  • While still wet, sprinkle on the material until covered.
  • Now slightly wet it and apply diluted water glue mix in a spray bottle (two water 1 glue).
  • Lay out a very thin coat of more scenery as the glue will soak up and give you that “dry” look.
  • Down the road you have to vacuum the dust but the scenery will not come loose.
