“Shake and Bake” technique
Heki, Busch and Faller have a variety of grass shades and lengths which work well. Whichever you select place a good amount in a sandwich bag. The next step requires a bit of dexterity as you will need to hold the base while it is inside the bag. The fiddly part is to have enough room inside the bag that the grass can move about as you are shaking the bag while holding securely the figure.
Shaking the bag about for 5 seconds or more, you can take the element out and tap the loose fibers back into the bag. You will find the grass will stand upright and all loose fibers are contained within the bag and not on your clothes.
So, with the bases treated the last step are the allocation of flags to the battalions and squadrons.
