I have placed an order for a 4ft x 2ft Noch grass mat from ebay so will have a better idea on how this looks in the week.
Here are some photos of the first trial samples done earlier today..........
I sealed this board and let the PVA dry before applying a second neat coat.
The static has stuck well but you can see a few bald spots. Not bad and the colour is pretty good too and includes a fine mix of sharp sand. The board was airbrushed first with brown.
This is one of my high density blue foam boards that I will be using to make the base table for the Somme. The grass seems to have stuck a bit better to this material than the PVC board above.
Again a base coat of Vallejo Earth brown was applied before the PVA was applied. I did not use two coats of glue here as there was no surface tension like the PVC board above.
This is just a better photo of the PVC board.
I'll give these a proper testing tomorrow when the glue has dried and see how durable they are.
Depending on the grass mat I will decide between the two methods for the Somme table.
