Element Experimentation: Tall Grass

Searching for your lost ball in waist high grass can be a real bummer. The grass-mania continues! Now with some untamed, tall grass, made by utilising the ever so useful 16770 – Barb / Claw / Horn – Large with Clip. Probably not the most versatile grass technique, but it could prove useful in certain…

Element Experimentation: Soccer Grass

Since my last grass technique was a bit too unkempt to make a nice football field, I tried out some other pieces to see if I could come up with something neater 🙂 This is basically made from two elements: 32828 – Bar 1L with 1 x 1 Round Plate with Hollow Stud 30126 –…

Element Experimentation: Autumn Foliage

There are few things that can compare to the dazzling show of vivid colors that is the autumn foliage. This is definitely the most detailed 8×8 build I’ve ever made. The star of the show here is the 13564 – Cattle Horn – Long in Reddish Brown. When I ordered it I knew I wanted…

Element Experimentation: Snow-covered Spruce

Next in line for my elements experimentation is: 2417 – Plant Leaves 6 x 5 in White Another pretty straight forward piece. Snow covered trees? Yes, please! I feel this color works wonderfully with this technique 🙂 What I like most is the possibility to layer green leaves under the white ones, like a real…

Element Experimentation: Microscale Tree

Receiving bricks is always an interesting experience. Lately I have received quite a few new bricks, both from orders where I have chosen the pieces, but also a number of random pieces which, in many cases, I have no idea what to do with. And even for some of the ordered elements I’m still not…
