I remember on the old site that Alcal posted some really useful info on faux(?) fur; where to get it and what to do with it. I need to make some modular (moveable) fields. Can anyone (or Alcal) enlighten me please?

Thank you Al. Is it the 'Wolf' shade the one you mean or the 'Timber Wolf' (either way 'My fields are made of Wolf Fur/Timber Wolf fur has a certain ring to it'....)

Thanks Al.
There was a step by step on the old site of a big WW2 layout you did, which I think had a lot of info on Faux Fur an how to use/treat it. I can't find it (as yet) on here. Is it up?

Smirnoff,

If you look in the terrain section on the new guild forum there is a step by step build.

I've never worked with faux fur and as there is no written commentary to the excellent images I'm having a guess at some construction/handling points:
1. Fur glued down with PVA?
2. Trimmed in areas?
3. Coloured with spray or airbrush?

Lost all the comentary on my last forum,but essentially your right except for painting,i use airbrush but either way dont use oil based or celuloise paint as it clogs fur.
