Adding Moss To The Skull Island Wall

Finding moss to add to the top of the Skull Island wall was difficult. The moss at the arts and crafts store was too large. The stuff I found at the model train store was in much too small of a scale.

I opted for the moss from the crafts store. I chose three shades of green moss and a brownish colored moss. By tearing it with my fingers and finely cutting it with scissors I arrived at a size of moss that would be in scale with the miniature wall.

Next I cut sections of burlap cloth to the size I wanted my mass of moss to be. Using a hot glue gun I tacked the burlap to the top of the wall. After adding more glue to the burlap I pressed small batches of moss into place with a metal palette knife.
