In the spirit of 'tightening the financial belt'. (for as long as the will power lasts out) I've decided to revamp some of my home made hedges. Built around twenty years ago, from Brillo pads, my hedges have stood the test of time. However the discovery of a cheap glue gun and clump foliage made the time investment worthwhile (except for the hot glued fingers!)
They were simple enough to complete, with squeezing the foliage quickly onto the hot glued hedge, and gently brushing off the excess. Some patches that did not receive stuck clumps were touched up with ordinary PVA glue; pretty easy as this was usually on the top of the hedge. Finally I drybrushed some artist acrylic light grey on the base, to bring out the detail a little more. I've enough to make a small game table look suitably crowded, and I feel they look nice and bushy. Will use them in the next game.
