It looks like rubberised horsehair - but I can only find it in 1" thick sheets - this is clearly thicker than that.

Your wrong it is the 1" rubberised horse hair,i rip it in two to get the uneven effect and the just layer it on.

ok Al, I know it may sound stupid, but what about the passage between pic 3-4-5, brown rubberized hair, and pic 6 with green? the hair remains brown (I guess you don't paint it) and then you glue something on? what (I mean what kind of foliage?) and how do you lay down the glue on the hair?
btw thanks for posting this!!

The leaf foliage is listed in the Terrain Resource Centre but here is the info anyway:
http://website.lineone.net/~john.s.lloyd/
Green Scene, Dept WWW, 60 Holly Mount, Worcester. WR4 9SF (SAE for info)
01905 24298 (international +44 1905 24298)
john.s.lloyd@lineone.net <john.s.lloyd@lineone.net>
John sells other materials but i buy my tree Foliage from him,its the course grade in my example,also check out the gallery page nice couple of Tigers at rest.


Brush on and into, loads of white wood glue/Unibond and sprinkle away,sorry its that simple.Because its latex rubber you get very little shedding over the years.

I just bought a new furnace and was looking at the filter that came with it and it look pretty good. Twisted Evil

Hi Al & Fabrizio,
just last night my first attempt to reproduce the hedges using Alcal's system Very Happy with different material. Asap photos of my work in this section.
For now: I used card box, white glue and "canapa" (Hemp) a type of vegetable fiber similar at a blond wig and used by hydraulic workers.
It can be found in a usual hardware shop.
I've cut some part (size for 20 mm) of canapa (hemp) in forelocks, then glued to card box giving a typical curly shape.
Then I sprayed in matt black and light green*.
After dryed I glued (with white glue and brush) the leaf foliage in light&dark green (the typical flock used by railroad modellers).
Until now the "experiment" is positive:
- it has a good look;
- the materials is very easy to found without mail order
- it 's very cheap.
It need only of some dry brush in brown in the bottom part of hedge.
Hope usefull
regards
salvatore
* yesterday in hardware shop wasn't in stock a varnish spray in brown or light brown so I preferred the light green. My opinion is better.

I use Coya fibre for hedgerows, which is used as a top dressing for indoor plants (to hide the soil I guess), it should be available through nurseries and florists I guess. the price of rubberized horse hair scared me off (tightwad)I must admit and I reckon this works just as well.
