Yeah I'm gonna do another coat of glue.  stuff isn't as secure as I hoped. Putting the modge on the edges picked up too much flock

New board pieces in small village layout (if I do 2 more grass and road pieces and 4 corner squares, I can fully surround a small village). This is compatibility with my current scatter

You can see some of the spots on the edge where the extra modgepodge is. That's  SOLID but I think if I do anything again it'll be an extra coat of glue/matte medium/matte modgepodge and water. Things aren't coming off, but I want them to be extra durable with a toddler.

I couldn't leave well enough alone, so now I have 2 more of the cobblestone and grass patches to match gluing on my desk.

These are just foamcore in double layers, so won't be as stiff, but should be similar enough

Not gonna take too many more process pics, but it's real.

One... I didnt cut as carefully as I thought, so there's a bit of Pollyfilla for the gaps. It'll be fine.

Got a spray seal in this morning and should be able to get a glue seal at lunch. Will try to take a pic of the square surrounded by green if possible.

So I guess 4 12x12 inch "grass" squares to fill out the gaps? So 44x44 "village."

Not my priority, but cool. Gonna do 6 river banks (both sides, so 12 pieces).

Looking good! Very tranquil and pleasant. Good spot for a statue or fountain in the middle there.

I've got a few options already! Including my Cthulhu squid head thing, my giant city square plinth.

Ugh. One of the grass and road boards warped a bit. I'm weighing it down. Also some bits were apparently sticky and stuff got ripped off. I'll need to touch up. I measured the corners, and I have 2 12x12 spaces and 2 10x12 I guess I was a touch off on measurements. Anyway... I'll get to those eventually. I might try reversible sections to avoid stuff. Will have to see how it works out first. I'll try a small pond in one, and a swamp in one, and if those are okay, then I'll try a similar kind of flock to what I did above on the opposite side.

Other related stuff besides the river edges, would be a dock/harbour edge.

I might look for artist masonite for something more sturdy to avoid warping.  I can also work towards  a piece that works for my lighthouse to tie those in.

Now to see if I can find some reasonably priced pouring medium to use points on amazon, or else just buy from local art supply.
