Broken chips of ground

I often use bits of soil to cover my mechanics or to add a natural "just pulled from the ground" feel to my design.
Chips of ground made by mixing glue and potting soil dries to a hard but natural looking bit of earth.
It is easy to arrange into a design and can just as easily be removed.

Do not let the chips soak in water as this will dissolve the glue
