Whilst doing some quick reading about using Lichen for bushes and with tree armatures, I accidentally stumbled upon this brilliant article!
For a few weeks now I’ve been thinking about how to model different styles of bushes, and I was coming up blank for this particular style.
But this bloke has a great solution! Using teased out Faux Fur as a base for bushes.

Apparently these Faux Fur bushes can be made larger too, ie for O Scale, easier than using teased out polyfill (teddy bear stuffing). As the Polyfill fluffballs have a harder time supporting the weight of the attached groundfoam / turf.
I’m gonna give it a go sometime soon and let you know how I go, I’ll be sure to add a post about my adventures!
