I just got this informative email from a reader which will certainly help you… Thanks Perry 🙂
Dan, I use Hydrocal as well. But, once the mixture firms up, and while it is still pliable, I pin the moulds to the area I want them on. They dry in place and stick to the hill/mountain without glue.
Usually my hills are made from 1″ foam insulation. I also add a small drop of dish soap to the interior mould (prior to use) smeared lightly, so as to provide an easy release from the mould when dry.
I use large safety pins to keep the mould in place while drying. These are bent open to force the mould tight to the surface. The pins are inserted through the edges of the mould and are large enough to swivel over the mould.
You can build a large area this way and then paint the whole thing as one unit. Cheers Perry Doig
