Default Kitty Litter?

I was wondering... would kitty-litter be a good effective choice for basing minis? I might run out of the GW sandy gravel I have right now, and I need a backup plan. Shall I wash the catlitter first? - it has some type of dust on it I think. Just wondering. thanks

For crying out loud!

For 2 bucks I got a half garbage can full of sand.

I've used it on countless minis, 15+ terrain peices, a 4x8 table, and I still got enough to sand to it all 100 more times!

Cat litter? ??? Dont be silly. :

I really wouldn't use kitty litter. It absorbs both oil-based and water-based liquids (which is why we use it), and it is very hard to seal. This means that the litter would soak up any paint you used on the base, as well as any ambient moisture in the room. This could probably be prevented by coating it in water-down white glue, but this might destroy the texture and could potentially get absorbed anyway. A good alternative if you want a coarser base would be fine aquarium gravel, which is usually inexpensive and available from any store that carries pet supplies. I use GW's gravel blend, but it is more expensive than it probably should be.

I agree with Khanaris, kittylitter absorbs anything what's 'water-like' is.

It's a ctually a mix of the all-the-same sandbox sand, some random small to med-small grain and a mix of the games workshop stuff.

Cheers.

UH, I have to clean my cats litter box every day, and trust me, you don't want to get that sand anywhere near your models. The sand itself (even without the poop) smells horrible by itself...
