I've tried to dodge my responsibilities for a while now but I have to admit defeat. I hate doing D.I.Y. (because I'm rubbish at it) but I'm going to have to bite the bullet. We have just bought my youngest daughter a new bed and this means reorganizing and redecorating her room. Fortunately it just needs to be painted and shouldn't take more than a day or two. So this weekend I'll be wielding a paintbrush of a different caliber to my normal weapon of choice.
I've also spent a couple of days sorting through various store cupboards in the house gathering together decorating equipment in advance of the job itself. This has revealed several interesting a long forgotten items that will eventually find a use on the games table.
One item - a tin of expanding foam insulation - looks promising, but I can't see an obvious use for it yet. The can contains 500ml of the foam which expands to three times its size when it comes into contact with the air. The foam sets in about 20 minutes and is fully cured after 2-4 hours when it can be cut, painted and even plastered. This might make a good material for making cheap hills from but I'm not sure yet. Any ideas folks?
