Fir-Trees made with grass fibers

Scale model Fir-Trees made with grass fibers

Scattering grass fibers: A different way of making the needles in the Fir-Trees is using grass fibers. This fibers are the same short fibers as used for making grass on a scale model scenery. It’s available in many different color nuances. For this Fir-Trees we use a dark green color to make it the same color as a pine tree in his normal environment. The way of making the tree is the same as we described in the chapter “Scenery making Fir -trees” 

We fill a empty and clean plastic shampoo bottle with the fibers and shake it very well. Shaking makes the fibers in the plastic bottle static. We blow the static fibers out of the small opening on to of the bottle in the wet spray glue. The fibers don’t stick flat in the glue due to the static. Fibers which don’t stick in the glue drops in the box like we did’t with the flocks and can be used again. For this trees we have used the grass fibers from Anita Decor but any other brand will give the same result.
