Deluxe Materials Scatter Grip

JOHN BRISTOW of Deluxe Materials shows us how to use Scatter Grip.

Scatter Grip

Creating realistic grass can be the make or break of a diorama and one of the most challenging to do well.

Scatter Grip

Fortunately there are many types of grass dispensers and specialist glues like DLAD-25 Deluxe Materials Scatter Grip to make a first class job of the grass and products like DLBD-60 Create & Shape to give contours to the diorama. Here you see the scene at its painting stage.

Scatter Grip

Having painted the ground, paint Scatter Grip on where you want to apply the grass. If itís different grasses you want just apply it stage by stage as we do here.

Scatter Grip is unique in that it dries and stays sticky so you have plenty of time to work on the scene and a better choice than PVA glue.

Tip: always wash brushes with water before the Scatter Grip glue dries. If you are unlucky with dried Scatter Grip then DLAC-19 Brush Magic will quickly restore the brush.

Scatter Grip

Set up the electrostatic grass gun (e.g. N60135 Noch Grass Master) and stick the pin into the base. Scatter Grip is designed to promote the static effect.

Apply grass onto dried but sticky surface.

Scatter Grip

Some great effects are possible as you can see in this close up of 2.5mm grass.

Scatter Grip

The Gaugemaster GM193 Puffer Bottle was used for the next stage. Scatter Grip glue has been applied again to the ground area in preparation.

Scatter Grip

Here you can see the grass falling down if you look closely.

Scatter Grip

Having brushed Scatter Grip behind the fence...

Scatter Grip was easy to simply place some rough grass tufts leaving the area around ready for tall 6mm grass.

Scatter Grip

Again there was no rush to do this before the glue dried as Scatter Grip firmly held the tufts in place.

Scatter Grip

For the final application of grass we again used the Gaugemaster Puffer Bottle. The video below shows the 6mm grass being applied to the Scatter Grip.

  • Scatter Grip dries and stays tacky overnight.
  • Allows plenty of working time.
  • Can be applied with a brush.
  • Works with all types of conventional and electrostatic grass applicators.

So why not make Scatter Grip the glue of your choice for your next static grass scene?
