    You might also try something like the tinted sugars used to decorate cookies. Sure, it will probably be pink, but it'll show you the low spots. It's light and cheap.
    Plus, you can still use the stuff to cover cookies!

    I'm liking this idea. I think I'll give this a try myself!
    Thanks!

    Post crumpled paper landscape

    I had to try this!

    I sprinkled some model railroad ballast onto the page and tapped it gently with a stick.
    Then in an editor: magic wand the ballast, copy selection to new layer, select and make mask. Color it blue.

    This is pretty genius actually. I love the idea, I think it could be taken to whole different level. Have some rep for this!

    mftassano, I believe some of my maps are going to be started in a similar fashion in the future. Thank you for that excellent tip and demonstration with the ballast! And to Caenwyr for the original instigation

    Mftassano, that turned out great! Ballast or sand for water is probably even better than water, ironically! I'll also be trying this.
