Hello CL,

Thanks for the nice comment I hope I've been of some help.

On Marcel's site he's done a page about using Photoshop: https://www.textures.com/resources.html very interesting stuff especially about using layers to bring out mortar textures in brick.

Cheers - Jim
I make as much as I can myself and try to find ways of not spending too much money.

A useful link, thanks. Dipping my toes further into card stock. Using some bridge material from
Scale scenes for an early North American viaduct. At 5 BPS it is a bargain, as man spans are required, and
one fee allows one as many as required. Plus, the paper, which I simply glued to some spare thin cardboard, it
can be trimmed, bent, cut to any geological texture with supreme ease, and it looks great. Had I tried to
Do this in plastic I’d be having to do major surgery, at an excessive cost.

I mention card stock to my North American counterparts, and they are as surprised as I am. It is not a commonly
used product here.
