We were snowed in all weekend, and I was lucky enough to be able to fight off cabin fever and make some terrain. Due to crushing boredom, I was also able to get the wife to help! I made a tutorial to show just how easy this is.
Read on to see the tutorial!
First you'll need a paintbrush and some green paint. Latex house paint is preferable, but all I had available were a few large pots of acrylic.
You'll also need hairspray and flock. The large tube of Woodland Scenics green grass works well. It covers a good area as well. I bought two, but haven't even used a quarter of one tube on tons of forests.
Don't use up all the hairspray on your hair! It's for sealing the flock.
And lastly you'll need a good deal of felt and scissors. The scissors we had available sucked, get some good ones. You won't regret it.
Green paint and paintbrush
Step One: Cut the felt to shape.
Step Two: Apply the paint. Again, easier to do with latex house paint.
Step Three: Spread the paint. Make sure to get the edges, but it's okay if you leave a few spots.
Step Four: Shake the flock on.
Step Five: After the paint has dried, shake off the excess flock. We used an old pizza box, and wound up recovering at least half of all the flock- like I said, it goes a long way!
Step Six: Use the spraypaint to seal the flock.
Step Seven: Enjoy!
