I used up some of the last bits of the versatile thin corkboard, torn up into rough shapes as the footprint for the broken ground and added a couple of generous dollops of timber putty, smoothed down with a craft stick and some water (which makes shaping the putty easier) into a couple of low hillocks. Some rocks and pebbles from the garden were added and the whole lot left to dry overnight.
Next day, the putty had dried, but turned out a lot blonder than it was when wet. I then painted over the putty, carefully avoiding the stones. After the paint dried, I painted on the PVA glue and gave them a light dusting of Woodland Scenics burnt grass flocking, added a clump or two of foliage and added a couple of twigs from the garden which do a good job as fallen timber.
