Ok folks, here's how I make most of my ground cover. It's quick, clean, blends with pre existing scenery and is reusable. Here's a list of the basic supplies needed. Fake fur from craft store (Hobby Lobby for me), wax paper, scissors, marker, shaker of ground foam, cheap hairspray and liquid nails for projects. Use the wax paper to trace a pattern directly from the layout and write "top" on the topside. Cut out the wax pattern and lay it upside down on the backside of the fake fur. Trace it's outline with the marker and cut out the scenery piece. Test fit the piece on the layout. Next take your fingers and rough up the fur a bit rubbing it against it's grain so to speak. This gives a more realistic look. Then sprinkle on your ground foam to taste. Spray it down pretty good with the hairspray. If you want a hill or rise in the terrain add a foam piece in place. Turn your fake fur over and run liquid nails around the edges and carefully glue it in place. Be careful not to squish glue out from the edges if possible. If it does it will be covered later. The edges will blend right into adjacent scenery using ground cover material. Next I'll cover the area across the tracks. I used the same technique but was able to reuse a section pulled off my 4x8. I just used a wax paper template and cut it out and added a bit more ground foam. In order to add trees you must cut a slit into the fake fur with a razor knife to allow the tree through. Then the magic happens. Use natural materials for scenic details like trees and bushes. Roots and dried moss are great materials. Be creative and look around outside for ideas. Thanks for reading.
