Our lichen model moss is the touch of realism you’ve been looking for to elevate your model railway layout, diorama or wargaming battle board to the next level. With our vast array of sizes and colours, our lichen model moss is the ideal natural product for creating model trees, bushes, hedgerows, or any other type of model foliage. You can also use our lichen model moss as a basing material to create a realistic base for your miniature models and figures to stand on. The possibilities really are endless.


Why Model Railway Lichen is so Popular with Model Makers

Also known as “reindeer moss” lichen is considered by many modellers to be the gold standard of materials when it comes to creating realistic bushes, hedges, brambles, trees and more. It’s easy to achieve professional-looking results with just a modest amount of lichen, some glue and a bit of imagination. If you are a fan of model railways you’ve no doubt seen plenty of lichen even if you didn’t know exactly what you were looking at. It’s the stuff that caused you to say “It looks so real!”

What Can You Do with Lichen?

Lichen modelling enables you to create bushes and trees that sell themselves to the viewer. Like sea foam, lichen is a natural material that, with minimal manipulation, can be made to resemble much larger items viewed at a distance. Those hedges and shrubs created with lichen can also be used to hide a plethora of otherwise troubling details like join lines and other imperfections.
If you want to ensure the quality of your model railway or diorama pick up one of our Lichen Multi-Packs. It provides all the model railway lichen you need in a variety of different colours to produce effects that would look right at home in Pinewood Studios.

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:
