This is a premade grass base for model horses or other scale animals. The base is meant for display purposes, but you might be able to use it for micro mini photo showing. (Note: The horses shown are not included, this listing is for one circle base.)
The base is a 4-inch diameter circle and the grass-covered area has a 3.25-inch diameter. It is a good fit for a few of the Breyer Stablemate (1:32 scale models) but works best with smaller scales.
The wooden base is sanded, painted black and green, finished in a slightly glossy matte sealer, and then covered with model train grass. The grass is attached in multiple layers with a mixture of water and Elmer’s wood glue. The base has been through several tap and wind tests to make sure it’s pretty sturdy.
An additional bag of grass is included in case the base is ever damaged. The grass can be attached with a mixture of water and Elmer’s glue. Instructions on how to repair the base (and how it was made) can be found here.
This base is not compatible with any of my model fencing templates and has no post holes.
The base will ship in a handmade cardstock box that can be used for storage. The box has two flaps that can be curled to hold the base securely and release with pull tabs.
Materials used: Artminds Wooden plaque, Green and Black acrylic craft paints, Krylon matte sealer, wood glue, train grass mix (Woodland Scenics, T45 Fine Turf Green Grass, T46 Fine Turf Weeds, and T43 Fine Turf Yellow Grass).
