Got this stuff in the diorama kit. Described as foliage material, it looked a little like the infamous hanging basket liner...
Did a wee test on a piece of scrap foam core... after a bit of a trim, it seemed to do the trick, so unable to find any other info, I forged ahead with grassing up the knoll. I've included a step by step so you can all laugh at my mistakes and hopefully learn by them as i'm sure I won't
So here are my weapons (tools) of choice. Good old PVA and a pair of scissors. Actually the kitchen ones. Hope SWMBO won't mind!
Cutting it into small slivers seemed like a better idea than glueing it on and tearing it off as i had already applied scatter and didn't want to pull all that off.
Lashings of creamy PVA. The scatter soaked it up, so really needed to daub it on.
Push it home, making sure the base of the fibres are stuck into it, but so the PVA doesn't draw along the fibres.
Taa-Daa! rough grass. Hoping that the scatter will show through the long grass to give it some background and I hope that the joints in the strips won't show through. It needs a damned good hair cut, and where it ends, i'm planning on simply feathering it down to nothing to replicate the worn away grass. Thinking out loud, even if the joints do show, I may be able to sculpt them away.
Now, I've created this box frame to go around it, but it's left it in complete darkness. Never thought about illumination. Just looked up from the PC and spied a set of grain of wheat fairy lights I picked up from ikea, complete with a battery box for a quid some time ago. do you think they would work? And if so, should i cluster them in one spot, or spread them over the model?
Cheers for listening to my ramblings, next time should see it with a hair cut and maybe some ballast!
