POLL DESCRIPTION

In an article for the Charge! newsletter, Doug Kline explains what he calls Terrain Blending:

Blending is a process I use to hide (trick the eye) all lines created by terrain boards, terrain pieces and other terrain items. Normally, when you add terrain pieces to a table top, you can notice the point where it starts and stops, and distinct lines where it meets the table. To hide these lines (actually it just blurs the lines), I use a premixed flocking mix consisting of coarse and fine flocking. I prefer a burnt green color with other stuff mixed in.
Blending 15mm scale terrain

He goes on to explain that he even uses the flocking mix to break up open areas and make them more meadow-like, and outlines techniques for "reclaiming" the flock for future terrain use.

Do you use Terrain Blending?
