Lichen

#1

Post by Keith Berry »

I bought some of this stuff as I thought it would add some colour to my layout, but I am not sure how best to use it. Any ideas?

Would help if we knew what it looks like and who made it.

In my experience it’s horrible stuff. Over time it absorbs moisture from the air and can, in some circumstances, drip dye onto the surrounding area.
Traditionally used to create bushes and foliage, there are much better modern alternatives available.

As you already have the Lichen and if you still want to use it after reading the other posts, tear it up unto clumps and stick it down with PVA adhesive which will dry clear, Then dab the Lichen with neat PVA and sprinkle on scenic flock.

Is it the real thing or the rubber version?

The trouble with lichen is that it looks like lichen.

I should have said that it is produced by Javis Countryside Scenics, but I get the messages. Thanks for help.
