Its also a cheap and ideal option for constructing Tufts for Infantry bases.
On this page I describe:
- How to make a DIY Static grass applicator.
- How to use the applicator to construct Tufts.
- How to use it for general Terrain making.

1. HOW TO MAKE A DIY STATIC GRASS APPLICATOR
2. HOW TO USE THE APPLICATOR TO CONSTRUCT TUFTS
Items needed to produce static grass
|Open applicator lid and add flock and lock.|
|Cut wax paper sheet to fit metal lid|
|Clamp crocodile clip onto the rim of the metal container and mix 90:10 ratio of PVA to green paint|
|Use a instrument to apply varies size dots onto the waxed paper|
|Turn applicator on and shake the flock onto the dots.|
|Tufts of grass are formed as the applicator draws the grass upright over the PVA.|
|Completed tufts,continue this process until the sheet is completely covered and allow to dry|
|Once dry, tufts are ready to remove off the baking paper as needed|
|Currently working on completing the basing of my British figures, hope to finish them soon.|
3.HOW TO USE THE APPLICATOR TO CONSTRUCT GRASS FIELD
|Follow the same procedure as described in section 2 above with the difference, the crocodile clamp needs to be placed into the terrain board (weather its MDF or Styrene foam) via a pin or very thin nail to complete the electrical circuit.|
