I've made a start on some test pieces of ground, 6 inches square based on foam board, a quick trip to Wilkinsons and I got three tester pots of their emulsion paints. You can see the pots in the top two pictures. The paint I bought was Java Bean Emulsion, Nutmeg Spice Matt Emulsion, Chocolate Dream Matt Emulsion. All Wilko own brand, 87p per pot. I was a bit worried that the Java Bean would not be matt as the was no mention of Matt on the pot. But after using it it dried perfectly matt. The top picture showes the ground work with small stones and sand and PVA applied. The green flock which was used was quite a bright green when applied but with some dry brushing of the Java Bean it blended in very well. The second picture shows a Pendraken BT7 in 10mm scale, to give some idea of scale. The next step will be to cover it all up with snow!!
