So, after a bit of land form sculpting (which will not satisfy all readers of this blog)....
It was time to have a go so i cut out as first piece and glued it down with the good old PVA.
First thoughts are that its easy to work with. it looks OK, but I will still be doing a bit more colouring to lighten it up. The inside bits in the roll are a bit flat, and I'll leave this spread out from a couple of days to see if it improves.
The huge plus for me is that it has saved a vast amount of time, given that I would have to acquire a static grass dispenser, get the grass, then spend time learning how to do it all. Add to this the fact that I don't think static grass works visually (it just doesn't look right to me, especially when some seem to think its the bees knees).
I also added some offcuts from the mat to do some other areas at the Wellington end of the layout.
However, I could not resist having a bit of a play
