I also do the same for quick flocking on bases. Get a few colours and grades, mix them up, and you have a more interesting base.
I cast Hirst Arts molds to make terrain. Another trick I do is keep all the plaster flash that comes off and use this in basing my WW2 figures. With a quick wash, it looks like rubble.

Another idea is using Miliput (red label) and the sponge insert you get when you buy a mini. Mix the miliput up, spread it out where you want the sand and dab the spongy thing onto the miliput and the texture provides a nice sand look. Also try different foam types for different results. It will give similar results to the pumice paste that Sanael mentioned.
I do something similar to this, but use GS and then dab it using 100 grit sand paper to add texture.
Some tales are better left for the light of day.
