Strolling through Home Depot I stumbled across small carpet samples for free. Not sure what I could use them for, but knowing they had some hidden potential, I brought a few home with me. Now as I begin to build terrain for FFT 3, I remembered these and began trying to turn them into some German farmland.
First step was to give all the squares a spray of brown. It took 2 heavy coats to get the color saturation I was looking for
Next was a heavy dry brush of tan, vari greens and some yellow.
I added some flocking to create more variations.
Finally the completed fields. I will need to vary the shape of the fields for the next batch and try spraying some with a lighter brown. overall not bad for very little time and cost.
