    So the whiting is chalk. Where do I get dextrin? Is it just liquid starch?

    I did see dextrine listed at Vandykes. I'm guessing this is the same thing.

    Yes the dextrin are coming in to types, the yellow and the white. In Norway the yellow one are the most economical.

    If you do you will see his ROOF needs a Hair Cut . well if you look at his site look under the word on the left ,,, >>>> K ONTACT you well see ,,,,, it must be hard to get a lawn mower up on the roof . LOL. I had never seen anything like that b4. it is pretty cool looking if you ask me . I do not think it would work in my area. It was 18 below this morning. I think it would all die…

    Hi Galen, no problem with the grass in the winter. In my area we have winter 5 months a year and the temperature goes down to -30celcius in periodes. It`s a old tradition in Norway using grass on the roof. ( Not cutting the grass) ;D ;D ;D Ollie
