    Great video, Ron...thanks! Do you have any suggested colours for the mineral content of rock other than iron ore? Suggestions might be really useful for me and for others.

    I watched this session earlier, but forgot to leave a comment so I watched it again to refresh what it was about. This session is very helpful in creating the rock formation and coloring the rock. I also enjoyed the coloring process on the rest of the ground cover. Thank you very much for the free classes on the spectacular scenery class.

    Scenery2 was incredibly detailed and helpful. I am working on a shelf layout right now. Only one question: Those spray bottles …where can I find those specific ones??? Mine were awful. Too big a spray size and they all broke after a short time!

    Sessions 1 & 2 were very informative and gave me some great ideas and techniques to start my first layout. Ron is a very fine instructor that covers the details that are necessary. Looking forward to the future sessions!
