I found that static grass at http://www.scenicexpress.com/
It is a pretty sweet site with a lot of nice stuff on it. Just wasn't what i ended up deciding on because of hte shipping time and cost. If u aren't in a rush though.. i think it is great. Plus i think if u order mroe than 2lbs of stuff the shipping is better.
It seems that the woodland scenic stuff doesn't have the multicoloured hairs mixed in to give the grass some dimension. Like the GW stuff has some yellow and like redish grass strands in the green grass, which i think make it look better. Plus i wasn't happy with other woodland scenic products like the realistic water and want to try some other companies out.
hehe. I suppose i can put my pics up. Though I don't have my computer yet (Still being fixed). But i am going to go pick it up tonight. So I can't upload anything till i get that back up and running. So either tonight or tomorrow, i can upload whatever pics i have.
- I fixed up that small chip in the table from the hockey net falling over on it
- I drove all over the place trying to find a black spray paint that wouldn't melt foam (aka.. water, not solvent based). And I tried walmart, homedepot and a small craft store, before finding it at Michaels (a big craft store here in canada). The spray paint says it can be used on styrofoam, and is intended for like flowers and such so i better not melt my foam. Though i am sure it won't, but i still haven't tried it yet. I will as always test spray another piece of foam before i go straight at my table. It was quite pricey though for the 2 spray paint cans i got (2 x flat black). They were like 7$ each! and i was tired of driving around and didn't care anymore so i just got them. U probably could find some cheaper ones. But make sure they are safe for foam!
- While i was at Michaels, i knew they sold envirotex there, so i purchased a 32 oz kit. Which was the biggest they had there, and hope it will be enough for my 2 rivers. (1 L approximately). This also was expensive!!! around 34$!!! I am kinda afraid to use this stuff.. the two components seem so harmful to your body in anyway. Just breathing the fumes in is like very potent. And touching it :S. Well when ever i get around to adding the water i will try my best to not kill myself and use goggles/gloves/and some kind of amazing mask.
- I went to ebay to search for my flock solution. And gave in to what i saw. So i purchased 3 packages of static grass off this one guy and with shipping it cost me 18.50$ approximately. The packages are appoximately100g each by inspection. And the colour is medium green. Only issue is it is coming by USPS First Class Mail International, from arizona usa, to me in toronto. And i think that type of shipping is the cheapest u can get from USPS. And it doesn't even have a time estimate on the site. For every otehr type it does, but for this type it says (time varies) or some bs like that. So lets hope it comes this year
So i basically did a lot of shopping yesterday so that i can now continue working on the table. And now i can prime it at least, so i can begin the painting process.
this table is also costing me quite a bit though i have noticed. i am probably going just over 200$ right now. So that isn't good
. But if u don't have trees or water .. u would be able to make a much cheaper table.
