Looking at your 2nd & 3rd photos it will never catch on as a new breakfast product, even with guaranteed crunch.

Thanks for the photos Mr Greene, very self explanatory. The results are simply superb.

Regards,             Michael

Thanks Michael, yep...maybe a bit of sugar and the bowl might be satisfying and filling. But the sugar would make the terrain a hot bed for unwanted critters (bugs!). Believe it or no...I use the paper bowls so I can throw them away after use but it seems that I tend to use the same bowl several times over. Thrift? No, crazy!
As for paint brushes, I do use the finest Windsor-Newton art brushes (left to me by an artist) for this "painting", I keep my .39 cent brushes for fine detail work on special projects.

Woodie, by strange coincidence two of us, today, both of of a 'certain age' as one says, were remembering WW2 rationing and the "joy" of eating sugar sandwiches (bread, butter & thickly sprinkled sugar) when sugar finally came off rationing, 1952 I recall.

Despite all the 'expert dieticians' of today we are both still alive & 99+% well (most of the time !).

Regards,           Michael

Good techniques.
My parents got me a jar of dirt dug from the very area my layout takes place in, and I'm starting the scenery finally for my layout.
I need to sift through it with a magnet as that region has a lot of iron in the soil and ore all over the place.
Can't risk any of it getting into motors of locomotives going back from magnetism...
