The sand I use you can get at any craft store that does floral. I have 11 different colors to choose from in my terrain drawer. I have blue red, and even flouecent colors. I love this stuff for basing. It is the same stuff the use to put in the bottom of vases for fake flower arrangemnets.

Based and ready to prime

Here is the mech, based and ready to prime. I added a little scrap to the base, since there was a lot of open space when mounted. I filled the base with vinyl spackle and sand to build it up. I worked it up the feet a little, to give the impression of the mech sinking in the mud.

Primed brown

Here, I have primed the mech with a brown Krylon primer, to give me a rusty base to start off with.

Drybrushed white

My next step was to drybrush the entire mech with white, so that when I go to lay down the next layer it has some brighter areas.

Drybrushed steel

Next, I did a heavy drybrush of Steel. (I think this is an old Armory color that I have had around for years. Gotta love those old 4 oz. bottles.)
