that is the theory 8-)
when experimenting a new technique, I always take the slow approach (I have botched some paintjobs with simply trying out). So just stop with the lighting up when you feel OK. A freshly ploughed field will be moist and darker, while dried out furrows will show the lighter coloured clay

I really want to use the rubberized horse hair for the hedges but being in the states I have to go over seas and woollies in the uk wanted to charge me 90 pounds for V.A.T so if you know any way of getting some over here or have some you want to get rid off I would be glad to buy some from you

sorry, I don't use them and I know only of the guy who sells hedges ready to use. Also, I don't see how sending from germany won't get taxed as well?

Hi, Sorry I missed this.

I used house paints on the field.

Basecoat 'Chocolate Brown'

Dry brush 'Mid Brown'

Very light dry brush with 'Mid Stone'.

Your hedges are looking very good.

Pat.

"90 pounds for V.A.T"?
that does not seem right - unless you were ordering 450 pounds worth?
last time I looked VAT was 20% and as far as I know it should not be charged on most things to non EU residents

Just cross checked with these guys
No VAT but the shipping is a killer as its DHL at 43 quid

Sometimes its actually cheaper to ship several smaller quantities - as you are going to cut it up anyway - rather than one big 6 ft sheet?
