I am a model railroader. I am also an M&M collector.
My question is: I am making a model train layout featuring an M&M cityscape. I would like to use all different sizes of M&M's for the streets, sidewalks, bushes, etc.
What I need to know is if there is any type of spray or something that can be brushed on the candy after it is glued down to prevent the candy from melting?
This train display would be shown at all different times of the year. Thanks for your help.

Your question is very interesting and fascinating. I've never met an M&M Collector. :) I'm a an M&M eater!
I don't think I could keep them around long enough to make something so clever as a model train layout with an M&M theme. I'd be nibbling on the scenery.
I really don't know what would work to preserve the M&M's and keep them from melting. I don't really think melting, per se, would be a problem if they weren't being touched, unless you really had them in a very hot area or in the direct sun.
I could be wrong, though. Let's see if anyone else has any good suggestions.
I hope you'll take some photos of your finished railroad project and add them to the site. I'd love to see it, and I'm sure other visitors would, too!
