Medieval hut or stoneage or fantasy or whatever
The Materials.....Green insulating foam, sharp blade, scissors, stapler, pins, woodglue and some paint and some thin card (the sort from a cereal packet is good. You also need a handbrush or a softbroom (not shown in picture)
Here I have smeared some sand mixed with woodglue on the basing. Leave the whole thing to dry.
The roof. Mark a circle on some card, cut out and cut a line to the center. lap one side over the other to form a flat cone and fix in place with a staple.
Shade, highlight or whatever. It´s a good idea to paint the roof as in the pic. If left just dark brown it can show up through the thatch ...Oh yeh...glue the roof on!! :-D
Cut bundles of bristles off the handbrush / broom. These should be about 3-4 cms long. Smear some wood glue on the roof and then dip one end of the bristle bundle into the glue.
Attach the bundle to the roof, spreeading it flat. Keep going around until one layer is complete, then add another overlapping layer and so on.
Let the whole thing dry..trim the thatch to tidy it up a bit..add flock or whatever....finished.
