After watching years of the Terrain Tutor on You tube, I thought it was time to use some of his wisdom with my own terrain. I base very quickly and the I didn't like the idea of painting sand on this larger scenic base. I flock whenever I can and thought these big sci-fi bases are a good place to try new techniques.
So I laid out all of the flock tubs in a row and sprinkled the various shades on one after the other onto the wet wood glue in the areas I wanted them to be. I was happy with the result and it was fun to do.
I kept the green areas around the structures where weeds would grow and placed dirt patches in the worn areas near doorways etc. Fun stuff and very quick and instant.
Can't really tell the difference from painted sand with all of the grit under the flock and static grass tufts. I might try it next on some of the vehicles and it might be fun to try my ACW bases with this technique.
