Re-Clutter your Life (#Terraintober Immersion marker Project) Part 26 – Bushes

This Part 26 of a series of a fair few posts, Part 1 (link here) gives an overview and the philosophy applied to the series – cheap, simple and fun. Today we are making some bushes, not the linear terrain kind of bushes but some bog standard ones to clutter your battle field and making it look at little less flat and interesting.

Ok here we go.

You can use many different material to build up the structure of your bush, I will be using three of the many ones you could use – (i) Coconut Fibre, (ii) Cut to small pieces foam and (iii) steel wool. I also made a few bases,
First we put some sand on the bases
Glue down the materials (I used superglue, note the foam is now brown (I mixed it with PVA and Brown paint)
Let dry then spray paint brown (the coconut probably needs a little trim with some scissors at this stage)
First thing is to drybrush the edges in some browns and perhaps yellows (I use light brown, pale terracota and wheat yellow). After this apply pva glue all over the structures and dip in some flock, mine is a mix of turf scatter and some small foam particles. Finally shake off and then put some pva and add grass to the edges. Finalise when dry by applying diluted PVA on top, hairspray or a spray adhesive (this will create layer on top making the terrain stronger).
Point here was that you can use a lot of different base mater

Spend is still £24.42 in total.

Tomorrow, we will do something else…
