Default Re: Pelted Mink Faux Fur for Grass

Very nicely done.

I have tried dye on fake fur and found that it would not take, must have been using the wrong sort. In the end I greened the golden coloured fur using very diluted enamel paint, added very gently and built up in stages allowing each to dry then brushing the fur before applying the next dose. The effect is not as fine as the dyed fur but mine is G scale not On30 so it does not matter quite so much if the grass (around the feet of the workers in the yard) has a slightly thicker appearance.
