|Notice the creases, I didn't think they would matter.|
|Dammit, you can still see the creases.|
Next time I'll have to iron it.
but it's risky to remind the wife that I know how to use an iron.
|Original color on the left, altered product on the right.|
|This is not quite the same thing as teddy bear fur.|
but it's close.
Like a kiss on the cheek is close to a kiss on the mouth, but are very different.
|Cut the not-teddy bear fur into the shape you want,|
then comb the hell out of it.
Comb it like the hair of your children when they won't sit still.
|With wet-ish dry-ish brush, paint on the main color. I went with a bright yellow.|
Wheat is yellow right? I dunno, I've never seen wheat that wasn't already bread.
Take the comb and comb the paint all throughout the not-fur-but-close-enough-to-fur.
|I also added in some spots painted with a flesh tone,|
to give some variation.
Again hit it hard with the comb.
If the text box doesn't show, the top right is the original color.
I added a burnt spot to one field just to see how it looked
by using black paint and not combing it out.
|Test fitting the Herbst Woods.|
|Sheads' Woods basically covers most of this terrain piece.|
So I traced the shape on the fabric and inside that trace drew out the boundaries of the woods
|I also traced an outline of Seminary Ridge|
where a large orchard sits in front of the Seminary.
Man, I still got to paint the Seminary....
|And then laying down the flock onto the glue.|
I went with a light green for Orchards, and a dark green for woods.
Leave this to dry which takes no time at all since here in the Sac area its a 104 degrees outside
|Then you just cut it out.|
|Two woods, 3 Orchards/Groves.|
If there is time, I might spray them with some more glue and add a contrast color.
|I'm pleased with the result.|
The area is well defined but not a stark contrast with the base terrain.
