It's up to you if you want to do that next then sure we can. There are still loads of plants, weeds and ivy to be added to the groundwork yet but we can add those when the we've built a wall if you want.

OK leave it with me I'll get the cement out ;)

Again there are a few ways to do the wall/chimney stack. I will make a start and post lots of photos.

Back soon

Whilst I had all the materials on the bench it seemed like a good time to add the moss that grows on the wooden beams - This is a fairly east step

Take the "fuzz" that gathers in the comb when you comb the Raw Grass. Trim it with scissors into tiny fibers, almost making a dust with it.





Paint glue onto the tops of the wooden beams.





Onto the glue carefully place the fuzz you have previously chopped, Use a cocktail stick to help you position it. Also make sure it comes into contact with the glue. When in position give it a blast of hairspray. You may also want to add some moss to the stones on your base.








So this is where I will leave it for now. There is still lots to do in the way of refinement but that will mostly wait until all the other forest growth has been added. Then there's the trees and of course the stonework.





If there is anything I've not explained properly let me know.

Thanks

Ant


Okay that is too cool. When I get some spare cash I will definately get this stuff. It would add soo much to my figures. I really like this.

Thanks very much James I'm glad you're enjoying this SBS.

The next layer of groundwork should really bring the base to life. If you have any questions then please ask.

Cheers

Hi guys, I'm back home from vacation so I'll be working on mine during the weekend. Moon Pup, I don't know about other Floridians but this one and six of his buddies went to northern Minnesota to play in a golf tournament then headed for the U.S./Canadian boundary waters for some relaxing and walleye fishing. Went from 95 degree weather to a high of 55 degrees....cold but alot of fun!!!

This is what I got done today. Need to make moss next. I use Micro metal foil adhesive which is very sticky and very watery for doing the ground work glueing. A couple of more pics in my figure build.
James

PS This is awesome stuff for doing a forest floor.

Wonderful Ant

If you put up your groundwork against a real background I swear you wouldnt be able to tell if the whole scene wasnt real

Top marks

Evidently you have to put the code in for a picture to show :blush: . After watching star trek I assumed the computer knew I wanted to show this.
