Quilt batting scenery.
While visiting Leo and Ruby's layout a different technique for scenery was discovered. They shape foam into the required land form wanted, cover it with a quilt batting like material and then apply a generous coat of earth tone paint. This is then dusted with ground foam. The openness of the painted fiber creates the illusion of a forest floor with all it's lumps and bumps. When the paint dries the fiber forms a semi solid surface to which more scenery can be added.
