|Matchsticks! - tile grout spread thinly using a palette knife|
|Notice the section of cork base left clear. Muddy puddles at a later step!|
On some sections I wanted to install prepared gun positions with wooden flooring. I had in my head to use stirring sticks from McDs or Costa. I never got their and found a bag of matchsticks I had bought from a craft shop years ago.. they'll do said I!
I glued them onto a layer of PVA setting them carefully but not too carefully.. it was a hurried position remember! The lay out is clearly visible in the shots above.

|Leave patches of grout clear to contrast the ground effect|
|The gun was add to encourage me to continue. Be bold with the sand!|
Having done most of the messy work in Part 5 we'll get the paints out!
