    167. Day, July 2, 2015For the sake of the beautiful weather I have done nothing today - there is only one picture, like the dried soil looks now ....:

    The mass has become compact and tight. The contrast earth / stones I like not really, so I'm going to change something tomorrow...

    Today I have the floor at certain points brushed again with "Ponal"-Glue and these parts then quite thin scattered with yet slightly lighter earth (from a different part of the garden)...:

    With my "soil" I am very satisfied!

    Next week is planting time ...

    Next step:

    Today I have "planted" the base - but I have carefully tried to avoid the appearance of "English lawn".

    I used three different products of "Mini Nature" and glued them alternately, giving the impression of an almost closed degree surface, but differend colors and the length of the stalks and their structure... :

    The front half of the base I leave unplanted because there I have something else in mind.

    Tomorrow more.

    Oops?

    Why someone has thrown a precious Persian carpet in the dirt?

    [IMG]

    But seriously:

    When I painted the arms of dancing Cossack, it was clear to me that gun, rifle and saber should not so simple lie on the ground.

    At first I thought to make a blanket or something of FIMO. But I didn't liked that and so I hit upon the idea of ​​instead to take a dollhouse carpet.

    Since there are a number provider, I decided for a copy of "Menta Modelbau" (No. 10205.) ...:

    http://www.menta-modellbau.de/shop24/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=Teppich&x=1&y=7

    This thing is indeed woven with polyester!

    The thus generated "contrast" between "raw nature" and "fine woven fabric" on my base I find very exciting!

    The carpet was attached very proper style with carpet tape ...:

    Just the musician has come onto the base. Glued with two-component adhesive. Butt and stump are pinned together, just like the stump with a pin is secured all the way down into the wood....:

    Very cool Martin!
    Are you going to let the carpet hang over the base or trim it back to match the base? I don't think you can go wrong either way.
    Let's see the dancer on there next
