modelling and mental health

Having made it through the pandemic and trying to find balance in our ‘new normal’, it comes as no surprise that the demand for stress-reducing activities is at an all-time high. The increased amounts of time we spent indoors has led some people to discover new hobbies and has given others the opportunity to explore hobbies they had left in the past. While on the surface it can seem that our hobbies are just that; activities we do for fun, it can’t be said that certain hobbies don’t have deeper meanings or benefits that oftentimes go overlooked. 


Modelling is one of these activities that has many hidden benefits. Other than being incredibly entertaining, modelling as a craft can lead to reduced stress and overall improvements to mental health and wellbeing. 

Here at WWScenics, we feel strongly about supporting our customers and the communities which need it most. This is why we take the time to educate people about the importance of creative hobbies such as modelling, and how these activities have helped us through any struggles we have faced in the past, as well as helping us stay balanced and grounded in the present. 

There are important charities out there which work hard to help those with mental health struggles. We work closely with LINKS, which supports those in need of mental health support by offering a range of learning opportunities that build their self-confidence and self-esteem, and in turn enriches their lives.

How modelling helps

Modelling and crafting for improving mental health and mood

Studies suggest that any creative hobbies including crafting and modelling can have positive benefits for mental health (Healthline, 2019), including the following:

  • Reduced anxiety
  • Improved mood
  • Increased happiness

While modelling is a great option for those looking to pick up a new relaxing and creative hobby, it is not exclusively this activity that can help reduce stress. As the World Health Organisation (WHO) puts it, making time for doing things you enjoy is what matters most, and what is impactful in the long run.

Even so, you could argue that there are some activities that are optimally beneficial for mental health as they require not just creativity but focus as well, which means your attention is fully given to something positive and enriching. Having to concentrate on creating a realistic grassy landscape using multicoloured static grass and placing down your model trees in the right way gives you the opportunity to tune into a single activity and calm your mind. Not just that, but you will have a beautiful model to keep and look back on afterwards. 


Don’t just take it from us, though. We asked our customers what they thought about the impacts modelling has had on their lives, and the majority agreed that modelling has helped them reduce their daily levels of stress. 

We have also received a few touching messages from customers about the significant impact modelling has had on their lives. For some, modelling helped some people through a particularly difficult time, and for others it completely changed their lives, and they could not imagine going forwards without their newfound passion. 

The importance of creative activities such as modelling are undeniable, and what may seem a rather unnecessary activity such as creating a static fibre tree or using one of our static grass applicator tools to help you perfect the art of layering static grass, has the power to change lives.

Answer...Unfortunately, we do not sell different sized sieve heads for the Micro Applicator. Only the Pro Grand Applicator comes with three different sized sieve heads.

Here are some key things for you to check when applying static grass using our applicator:

  • Use a powerful brand-new battery (PP3 9V battery).
  • Do not fill the hopper with too much grass, as the grass needs to have space to move.
  • Only apply a smear of basing glue on the required area and make sure to apply the basing grass before it dries. Room temperature can affect this.
  • Do not apply too much basing grass to the area. If you cover the basing glue with too much grass it will not stand but go flat.
  • Once you have applied the basing grass and cannot see the basing glue anymore, add some layering spray before applying the layering grass.
  • Make sure the crocodile clip is near the applicator's head when applying the grass. You do not need to put a nail or screw into your model.
  • Here is a video showing how to use the applicator:

Unfortunately, we do not have any stockists in Europe or North America. All our products are sold online and shipped from the UK.

We would recommend using our D-Baller which has been specifically designed to get rid of static grass balls. Here is a video showing how to use this useful tool:
