After a few failed attempts I have hit upon the following recipe (which seems alright, but needs a matt varnish finish – waaaaay too shiny at the moment).

RailMatch worn tarmac base ( a mid grey), heavy drydrush with Foundry  Moss 29bB, then a coat of Windsor and Newton nutbrown ink.


Done a couple of trial pieces, happy to redo all my thatched buildings this way but I’ve been sidetracked with two packs of TimeCast ploughed fields and have used up all my W&N nutbrown ink.
