Martin Welberg Studios has revolutionize the genre of Model Scenery. His creation of scale scenic components have surpassed the accepted norm of modeling. The term "Super Detail" should apply when discussing these materials. First Take Caution!! As you know... These material are expensive and are designed to be installed in a certain way. In order to maintain the delicate nature of their fine structure please read below and learn properly the first time so not waste materials through trial and error as most modelers do.

Do Not Try to "PLUCK' a bush from the backing sheet! These are not grass tufts. You will squish and smash the bush to a point that it is useless. These materials do not like "fat fingers". Always use tweezers to handle the bush until you learn it's limitations.

First: You must remove the paper backing sheet from the black cardstock. It is glued at the corners. It's OK if you tear the card as it serves no other purpose. Try to keep the backing sheet in tack however. If it does tear keep the loose pieces together.

With sharp scissors begin cutting apart the bushes.  Cut apart in square bases. Try not to cut too much of the branches. Some of the bushes, especially the shorter shrubs, have branches touching the ground base. Smaller trimming scissors may be a better tool for this purpose.

You will see that the base paper has a wonderful ground cover of soil, grasses, deadfall and leaf-litter; this you want to keep. It eventually allows perfect seamless blending into your scene.
Very rarely in nature do you see square shapes or even straight edges. What needs to done next is round-off the straight edges and shape the base to blend more naturally. This can be done using trimming scissors or buy tear small pieces away from there perimeter. Tearing will give the most random edge that really blends nicely with other scenic textures such as grass tufts and foam turfs.
Here is a simple round base that can be placed easily and blend well with other bushes or materials. This was rounded by small trimming scissors.
The paper base, as you may have already noticed is a soft porous material that will easy conform to any contour. Use simple white glue to adhere to your scenic base. We recommend that bushes and shrubs be placed first on your scene, and then blend the supporting materials grassy tufts, static grasses and foliages.
Take our advice! You should only cut what you need at the moment. Experience has proven that if bushes are cut off the backing sheet and lay around unprotected... well the do become damaged and unusable. Get in the habit of always store the unused portion back in the plastic box for safety.
If you gotten this far, you probably have a pretty good understanding of complexity and also the simplicity of working with Martin Welberg materials. They are fine and delicate... but what in fine scale modeling isn't? "Practice makes perfect", they say and with materials like these you are well on your way.
