Armies on Parade Lyon – part 3

The deadline for this challenge is coming fast! Remi is putting a lot of pressure with his gorgeous thunderhawk tile. Anyway, it was time for me to work on the basing of my own display board.
First step was to cover the roughcast with a layer of white liquid adhesive to glue my special sand mix. As you may or may not know, I’m a chemist in real life and the liquid adhesive I used for this project is in fact an experimental product we’ve developed within the company I’m working for. Advantage of this liquid adhesive versus classic PVA glue is that it’s more liquid so easier to apply especially in small area, it dries way faster (less than 1 hour) and it’s biobased, meaning that it’s made with natural renewable raw materials and it’s harmless too (but don’t drink it yet, it’s not very tasty 😉 ). It was not the first time I used this product this way but up to now it was only for basing my miniatures, so it was the first time I used it on such a large scale. And it worked very well, I was very satisfied with the end result. The more I use it, the more I like it.
After several layers of sand, I glued some little details such as skulls, skeletons and gravels. I then covered the joints and I was done with this part.
