Finally a spot of matt soaked in and I found the stuff I added would wick to the already soaked area. Never had this problem before but then I have usually used straight ballast and with this mixture I added sieved decomposed rock and WS turf for that old buried look, was the rock dust the culprit?

Does 'using alcohol' help you do a better job dribbling? I've heard excessive drinking has that effect on some people.MASSIVERALPH wrote:DarkTerritory wrote:Got to throw in with MR too, I have always used Alcohol as a wetting agent and never have had an issue.
Nice to see I am getting my propers! I forget where I learned this, but I use the Woodland Scenics ballast(crushed walnut shells) and started using the alcohol. I carefully shape my ballast bed, then carefully dribble it on using a pipette. Then using another pipette, apply adhesive. I use both white glue and matt medium and have no issues. I stopped using wet water years ago for scenery apps and find the alcohol does a much better job.
