I was going to make a totally different Vietnam war 'scenic trap' to the one seen here, but as you can tell, my creativeness went is a different direction.
I have absolutely no idea how big I should make this trap as all the reference I had was a drawing and an explanation of how the trap worked. I didn't have dimensions to work with, so I guessed it all.
I decided to hide the bamboo poles in long grass, and I will surround this trap with other long grass so it wont look so obvious.
I actually made the grass myself using an idea I came up with, and I am very happy with how it worked.
I bought a cheap paintbrush for $1 and used it to brush the colour I wanted the grass to be through out the brush. I didn't wash it and let it dry.
Once it had dried I cut the bristles to the desired length and glued them to the base.
The type of brush is a wide one like you would use around the house to paint walls etc, and I bought one with light coloured bristles so the colour I wanted will stand out.
I am thinking of getting another brush and using dark brown on it to make grass covered roof huts.
