TREEMENDUS Raw Grass

I thought I'd show you all some of the effects you can get using TREEMENDUS Raw Grass. It can be coloured using both water and oil based paints.

Hi Erik

It is simple to colour.

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. 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

Ant

Hi Ant!

That grass is absolutely stunning! My next diorama will be a Pacific one. Guess I need to go to your web site!

Really nice,
