The foliage from trees and bushes as well as other ground vegetation can be simulated with the Heki foliage flock. For instance, beautiful model trees can be created using sea moss (sea foam) as the framework of the tree; this, then, can be partially covered with fleece foliage and finally finsihed off with our foliage flock.
Coating sea moss, Achillea or other tree frameworks is done in the following way: the tree framework should be dipped in, or sprayed with, wood glue and then powdered with flock or, alternatively, rolled around in it. If the original tree framework does not look to be of sufficient size or density to produce an adequate crown, it is possible to add, at the time of the first dipping, pieces of STEEL WOOL to it and then allow this all to dry before proceeding to the second step. PUR foam cut-outs (plant foam) can be used as a carrier for scatter material in the representation of hedges, bushes, or large forests.
The Heki foliage flock is made from synthetic foam and will therefore become statically charged more readily than the latex material used by the GREEN SCENE company. But it is also much less expensive!
Fibres and flocks are used in architectural models, railway models and dioramas as representations of vegetation. In addition, it also can be used as a decorative material in, for example, advertising displays. To cover an area with these materials it should first be spread evenly with glue (thinned wood glue with a brush or spray bottle; TESA ALL-PURPOSE GLUE/Technicoll or SPRAY ADHESIVE). Then you just sprinkle the flock directly on the glue. If the thinned wood glue has a good amount of POSTER INK or TONING PIGMENT added to it, the effect of green vegetation will be much enhanced.
