All are fun blood bowl type slogans which im hoping to inc operate onto my pitch im building. The pitch is nearly done with just a bit of flock left to do so these logos will go on next.
Problem is the application really. Ive never painted onto static grass/flock before so was wondering if theres any tips.
I was going to use a stencil and get a sponge to dab to paint on, sort of like dry brushing but a bigger scale. Any other ideas? Oh and any other Blood bowl type logos much appreciated
Pictures will come this weekend when i get my mates camera so any ideas/tips given now will be started by then.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Can't say I have ever painted on to static grass, but I think you are going to have trouble doing it! I find it hard enough painting on to sand that has been glued to a base, so I should think static grass would be even worse.
I'm not sure how big you are planning on having these slogans, but the only thing I could think of would be to work out what you want to paint and where, then use masking tape or something similar to cover everything else up and maybe use spray paint to put it onto the grass?
That would only really work if the slogans/logos were of a fair size, and not tiny little things...
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing it once you get it finished, so hurry up with those photos!
Yeah, a test piece would be a very good idea.
The way I'd go about it it using stencils. Then use white spray paint from a good height so you don't get 100% coverage and are able to see some of the static grass/flock colour through the white. That'll look more like pitch markings than a solid white (or any colour) design.
Sponge application could work as well. Experimentation will show you which gives the best result.
You can see what I mean in the pic below - some green showing through the white.
Hope it helps,
