the next thing i do is put down my moss sheet. you can get these at michaels for around $15. theyre quite useful.



youre going to also want to decide if you want the surface flat, or do you want a hillside. whatever its up to you. i chose to do a hillside. to do so just place some objects under the sheet of moss where ever you want there to be a hill or what not.

this is what i use. just some wood from an old dio of mine.

next im going to put some trees in. best pasrt bout these they are free. go cut some branches off a tree and you got scale trees for your joes. screw them at one end to some wood and theyll stand up just fine

next i start putting my trees in place. place them in different spots as i see fit. and use rocks as weights to make sure the trees dont fall over.


once the trees are in place i use some spanish moss i got from the $store to cover up anything i dont want seen or gaps they may need to be filled on the moss sheet.





and turn on ym lighting and this is what i have





anyquestion please feel free to ask. im not the best teacher in the world but ill do my best to help you out

VERY cool tutorial!

If you feel like doing more of these, please go for it! Here's a little trick: If you think you'll need several posts to include it all, reply to yourself several times and put in (reserved) in the body. That way no one will inadvertently interrupt your tutorial, and you can go back and edit the reserved spots as you please.
