Static Grass Layering Spray

The Uses of Static Grass Layering Spray

Static grass layering spray is a fundamental part of the static grass system, which has revolutionised the modelling industry. Not only is static grass layering spray an integral part of applying static grass to your model railway layout, diorama or wargaming battle board, but it can be used for other aspects of your scenery modelling as well. Layering spray is second layer of grass on top of basing glue because you don’t have to wait for it to try to be able to use and continue making your scenery. 

Static Grass Layering Spray Glue Uses

What is static grass layering spray, and why is it so special?

Static grass layering spray is an ultra-fine, fast drying, clear glue that works better than anything else you’ll find on the market. It dries incredibly fast, and you don’t have to wait for each layer of glue to dry before continuing to your next layer. The secret to static grass is glue, and layering glue is what helps static grass stand up and look so realistic. It dries clear as well, so the layers of glue are invisible among the layers of super-realistic grass. 

What else can I use layering spray for?

Realistic grass effects

Other than for gluing static grass down, you can use it to manipulate grass while the layering spray is still wet to create different types of realistic special effects. For example, while your layer of glue and static grass is still wet, you can move it around with your fingers to create clumps of grass, and reapply a layer of glue and static grass over the top of it. This will create a realistic tufty wild meadow. If you look outside at a field or a meadow, you’ll notice that wild grass is never truly even, manicured, or symmetrical. Playing with layering spray allows you to achieve an impossibly realistic effect. 

You can also create the effect of a fast-moving train by blowing on the grass surrounding your train track before it dries. This means your grass will dry at an angle, making it look like the speed of the train is bending the grass along with it.

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:
