Pallet of Sod
Some of you guessed what I was working on yesterday. No Troy, they were not brownies! :D
I used a piece of brown felt to make the sod. I glued coffee ground dirt on one side and Woodland Scenic grass on the other side. My garden center will sell sod by the piece for $2.00 each. 17 cents in 1:12 scale.
This is how I made the wooden pallet.
I used craft sticks and 1/8" x 3/8" balsa wood strips. I wanted a natural finish but not one that was shiny. I mixed up a slurry of watered down Folk Art coffee latte paint to stain them.
The hard part was waiting for the paint to dry so I could glue the pieces together. The pallet is 1 3/4 inches by 4 inches. That is about half the size of a real pallet. I want mine smaller so they will be easier to display.
I'm working on another one now.
Any guesses as to what that one will hold?
