Element Experimentation: Bamboo Grass

I know most of my techniques come with some serious investment requirements, but not so today! Because all you actually need is just bamboo 🙂 It’s pretty cheap, and can often be found in Pick-a-Brick walls. So this is a technique that hopefully anyone can afford 🙂 The drawback, of course, is the quality. There…

Element Experimentation: Leafy Underbrush

An attempt to get a bit of a wilder look from the plume feathers, by utilising the 6 pronged plant piece. At this point it hardly qualifies as grass anymore and is more of a heavy underbrush in a light forest. This could probably also be used to represent bushes like rhododendron or similar if…

Element Experimentation: Cattle Horn Grass

Yet another grass technique. Have used this technique before, but wanted to try to make it even more dense, and this is the result. Again, quite an expensive technique as green cattle horns aren’t the cheapest. I also wanted to see if this could be made to look like short grass, but even with a…

Element Experimentation: Carrot Top Grass

Another grass technique. This time made from Bright Green carrot tops. It has pretty good coverage, and it’s pretty cheap if built with flick missiles which cost next to nothing. Carrot tops are also not as expensive as many other grass parts. The look leaves some to be desired though, as I feel it has…

Cattle Horn Grass

Taking apart your old builds can be quite interesting, in the way that you rediscover some old techniques you’ve been using. Having covered a few grass techniques recently I thought this one could be interesting to share. It was my attempt at using cattle horns to create some long grass. I originally had planned to…

Soccer Grass Tutorial

This is a tutorial covering the another of my grass techniques from my Element Experimentation series. This grass is shorter than the wavy grass and looks more like what you’d typically find on a soccer field, although it’s still quite hard to balance minifigures on it 🙂 The technique is based on two elements: 32828…

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…
