Paul: "How'd you get that cool grass like texture there?" Me: "Um, I used a towel." Paul: "A what?" Me: "A towel." Paul: "A towel?! As in one of our towels, a towel from the house?" Me: "Yeah, and I think I'm going to need some more."
Only a few, duh. Actually, Paul is so supportive of the Halflanding that he's be ok if I used anything for it, bless 'em.
Yesterday began the surface texturing, course up close fine further one gets away. Below you can see the texture hierarchy (left to right); washed sand, polyester batting, The Towel, railroad diorama meadow fabric, and painted synthetic lawn. The later of which will be cut into small tufts and crammed into rocky outcroppings. Woo.
This is The Towel painted with just a flat base color, edged with polyester, plaster, and sand. When I hit those sweet sweet blades with an vivid apple green highlight--Look Out!
