I swear it doesn't look nearly as 'wonky' in real life although there are definite lumps and bumps across it due to the inconsistencies within the pebbles themselves. 'Character' I think they call it!
I am finding the liquid nails to hold up to it's side of the deal so far (well, better than the hot glue gun anyway!) but have found it quite testing, since it keeps squirting out the sides of the pebbles as I push them down (see below):
There are a couple of things I can do about this 'explosion' of liquid nails:
- Ignore it
- Try harder to not put so much liquid nails on
- Paint the liquid nails explosions with black paint once the runner is completed
I will keep working on this over the next couple of days and post a picture once complete.
