I have applied two layers of Aqua Magic to the canal basin and started to add foliage to the layout. The foliage comprises a number of different materials including the sample matting mentioned in the earlier post, some paint brush bristles and static grass tufts that I use to decorate the bases of my wargame miniatures.
In the final image (below) I have placed more clutter items along the side of the canal basin to produce a visual break between the canal and the main narrow gauge layout.
Although the layout is nearing completion, I am still tempted to take the amount of foliage and greenery even further.
