A Model Railway - Hedging

Unkempt hedging alongside country lanes can be very tall. This hedging is about 50 mm (12.5 ft).

It is made from coir matting (coir basket liner or flower pot). This material is ideal because it mimics a branch like structure. Tease it apart a little and random cut the top. Next, apply diluted PVA glue (50/50) and sprinkle on green scatter letting the coir show through in places. I used two grades of scatter and applied more to the base line after the hedge was stuck down. To finish, cut off any long, straggly coir pieces and maybe overspray lightly with green acrylic paint.
