Finished Paddy Fields

The finished paddy fields. I found some green garden twine (string) for 99p in Wilkinsons, great for using as the rice, saves having to paint it, different lengths some in small clumps for younger growth. Glued in place with PVA. Then dry brushed with some very bright green. The water is painted using Humbrol gloss enamel paint to give a gloss reflective finish. I've also added some wooden work ways over a couple of the sections of the paddys. Double click on the pictures for bigger versions.

These are fantastic - they look so life-like. Excuse alone for doing something like Vietnam...

Best wishes
