Take diorama creation to the highest level. Matte, made to scale, with a soft gray hue. Varying grain size from several microns to 1 millimeter, it works perfectly with pigments, taking on their color and allowing you to create any color palette and modulations directly on the treated surface. Dioramas have never been so natural, and the results are spectacular. “Modellers World” sands are designed for creative modelers who want to achieve realistic effects. The sand is easy to use, even for beginners, and its grain size is so fine that it will leave you amazed. The sand contains no impurities, so mixing it with pigments will give you wonderfully saturated colors. The 200 ml package will last for a long time.

Use depends on the creativity of the modeler. Here are some tips:

Dirt roads:

  • Unlike ready-made paste, which creates a flat surface, dry gravel or sand allows you to get an authentic, loose, and grainy texture on the terrain; take advantage of this! The product comes in a primary gray gravel color, but you can add pigments from our range. You can find suggestions by expanding the list at the very bottom. Buying this one product, you can compose a road in any shade.
  • Use our Solution – a medium for sands and pigments – to adhere to the sands and gravel. The best method is to give a layer of Solution to a base made of Modeling Clay or carved from a piece of XPS Styrofoam, which is best painted black or a similar shade to what you want. You can also mix the Solution with pigment as a base layer under the gravel. Sprinkle and form a gravel layer, then sprinkle the Solution where the “dry spots” are visible.
  • You can use a strainer to separate the smaller fractions as a base and pile the stones more on the sides and in the middle of the road, as they naturally break down on the road, torn up by vehicles.
  • You can mix with other Modellers World sands to get a variety of terrain.
  • Once dry, you can modulate the ground with color by rubbing in pigments or painting and shading with Weathering Paints.

Product FAQ

What is the difference between this product and sand that I can pick up in the garden? Does it make sense to overpay?

The difference is actually huge. First of all, the sand from the garden does not fit the scale at all. With the traditional 1:35, individual grains of sand will be the size of stones. But that’s not the only problem. Suppose you separate the smaller fractions using the finest sieves you can find. You get just the dirty dust. When mixed with pigment or paint, the color will be muted and ugly. Our product is sterile clean, and dirt free. The finest fractions are counted in microns. “Modellers World” sands are composed for the scale and a suggestion of which sand in which scale will be suitable is included on the cap. The package contains 200ml of sand. Remember that you will be increasing the volume of sand by adding pigments or glue, so it is enough for many models and dioramas. Also, the benefit is that you can prepare many small portions in different colors, so you do not need to buy many other pastes. Finally, dry sand has no expiration date. So relatively speaking it saves money and with so many benefits its price is not high.
