The glue dries clear. This is what the grass alongside the track looked like after a first pass. I added a second layer in some places later. Squeeze the fibres out on to the white glue. How thick you want your grass to grow will depend on how much glue you apply – more glue equals more fibres. I also wanted to plant some shorter weeds around the road and around the goods yard. I used the new Noch 2.5mm grass fibres with subtle colours. The first step was to paint a very thin line of PVA glue around the base of the building with one of the thinnest paintbrushes I could find. To represent the weeds between the lines, I dabbed just a little glue with a brush on to the tops of the sleepers, and around them. In some places along the road I wanted to plant taller, yellow grass that you see during summer. Apply glue to the fibres already in place with a paint brush… Apply a thin layer of grass glue with a brush. Apply the glue with a stippling motion, rather than brushing it over the surface. I then used the WW Scenics Precision Pro Grass electrostatic tool to plant the 2mm grass fibres in the glue. I fixed the alligator clip to the adjacent rail. I then filled a Gaugemaster Puffer Bottle with a blend of fibres. Hold your finger over the top and give the bottle a vigorous shake to ‘charge’ the fibres. …I used Noch golden yellow 2.5mm static grass fibres to represent tall dead grass. I used a Noch Gras-master 2.0, attaching its alligator clip to a rail to complete the electrical circuit. I used the Gras-master 2.0 again to create these ‘randomised’ clumps. You can you see that there was a very thin gap under the base of the building. It had to go… After the glue had dried, I removed the excess and this was the result. Hiding the gap between building and ground was worth the effort.
