Hi Anthony

it looks impressive in the pictures but what is the actual product is it like a mat of the grass or do you need to glue it to the base in clumps like static grass?

cheers

Hi Keith

It is a fur fabric on a sheet. It really is easy to use. Firstly I trim the fabric to the desired length. You can use either scissors or clippers. I use scissors so as not to get a manicured look. Keep the trimmings and use these as tufts elsewhere. I use a diluted poster paint which I rub into the fabric to give it a base colour. Then I use various other watercolours (browns, greens and yellow) rubbed in pretty much randomly to give a natural look. Next I take various aerosol paints (still haven't got myself an airbrush!) and spray the long tufts of fabric to simulate dry grass heads. When this has all dried get yourself a comb and brush the "grass" to the desired position. Spray it with hairspray to hold it in place. It looks great with sprinkle of coloured scatter to simulate wildflowers.

Cheers

Quick question! Will this product be available to the U.S. anytime soon? Because it looks amazing and would fit perfectly in my next diorama!
