How to make Static Grass look Amazing
Static grass is now a really common scenery material but at Warley I saw a new product – the WWS layering spray – which changed the way I do my static grass. It’s distributed under the Peco brand so you should be able to get hold of it anywhere. I’ve always followed the tried and tested method of putting down a layer of white glue, then using mostly Noch static grass and a Noch Grassmaster, put down a layer of grass. If you want to add another layer then you can try a spray glue, but the normal type leaves small balls of glue, or you can wipe on some more white glue. The WWS method starts with a basing glue which, unlike white glue, doesn’t skin over as fast. It then uses an acrylic layering spray which works like a dream. You can add more layers very easily which means you can get a real depth of finish.
WWS did send me some trial products such as the layering spray but I have since gone out and bought more of their product because I was so impressed.
