This is a premade Display or Photo Show grass base for model horses or other scale animals. (The horses shown are not included, this listing is for one oval base.)
The base is 3×5 inch oval and the grass-covered area is roughly 2.25×4.25 inches. It is a good fit for most 1:32 scale models (Breyer Stablemate) and smaller.
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 and, T46 Fine Turf Weeds).
