28mm Jungle Terrain

My plastic aquarium plants arrived today so I made a start on my first jungle terrain. These palm trees and ferns are my favourite and are a great representation of terrain from New Guinea to Burma- I like them so much I'm about to order a lot more! 








I based them on MDF and then added a layer of casting plaster to which I pressed the plant. Once dried I covered in pva, added sand them let dry again. Painted black, then a dark brown drybush followed by light brown highlight and some static grass. I also did a light drybrush over the trunks to make them look slightly less plasticy.

    1. Will add a bit more stuff as well for variety but I do like the way it appears to have good ground cover

  3. They look great, very lush with all the fronds at ground level.
