    Started on my bush. Got this little bit done before realising I have no more lichen. 20170914_214502.jpg 20170914_214522.jpg 20170914_214447.jpg 20170914_214436.jpg

    No worries. For the bushes I've never used lichen before. Do you just put it on straight from the packet or do you have to do anything to it?

    I soaked a clump of it in a 50/50ish water and pva mix, gently squeezed out the excess and glued it to my base. Whilst still wet I sprinkled it with foliage.

    Top work Shaun.

    Mole hills! Now that's a first. Excellent stuff.

    That's what I love when making dioramas - the unexpected, and sometimes off the wall ideas, that come along out of nowhere!

    That was my thinking. It's just the little touches. A mole hill here, a birds nest there. You don't see it often.

    Thanks Grumpa. Going to be a bit of a slower one than I thought.

    Playing around with figure positioning. I think this works. Fig A & B will be sorting out a camo net. 20170917_232114.jpg 20170917_233004.jpg 20170917_232816.jpg 20170917_232128.jpg
