A simple embankment diorama -part 3 Let the grassing commence

The method of applying the grass fibres is exactly the same as described in my earlier blog "A rockface diorama" so I won't repeat it here. But.. because I wanted to represent rougher grass on the embankment the base layer differs somewhat.

 

The fibres I have used are some recovered from various 'grassing' sessions and include many different lengths and shades and the odd bits of scatter and ash. Here's a pot full of the stuff. It all goes in the Flockit just the same.

The base layer down and at first from above and it looks fairly uniform but look a bit closer and you can see the difference in the fibres both in colour and length.

See you again when it is dry for the next stage.
