Easy Way to Make Unpaved Areas

Neil sent in his quick tip:

“I discovered an easy way to make unpaved areas of ground surface such as gravel or sand. I now use differing grades and colors of sandpaper and adhere to your surface. I wish I had found out earlier. That’s life I guess.”

    Awesome tip. A relatively cheap, quick and easy way to create those types of surfaces. Thanks!

    I use them too, different grades to represent paths and when painted are good for concrete areas, keep it up! Emery paper is also good for road surfaces & awkward shapes.
