A little more homemade scenery now : some big unkempt hedges - the kind you see whilst driving around the Herefordshire countryside. Tall, thick and full of brambles, these hedges will form an interesting obstacle on my scratchbuilt battlefield.
These were made from green scouring pads, cut into strips and folded in half. They were then rubbed together to rough them up a bit, glued on to plastic bases with epoxy resin glue (boy that stuff stinks!) and then splattered with PVA.
They were then sprinkled with my green basing stuff and when dry, sprayed with Halfords matt lacquer to seal it in. This last step was something of an experiment, and unfortunately has caused a frosting effect on the scouring pads (which doesn't show up on my ailing camera). Time will tell if it actually stops the flock from flocking off!
