I ask this from time to time to see if there is a new source I haven't heard about.
I am a big fan of the Scenic Factory for sure.
Also Green Stuff.
Anyone have good ideas??
I,for one,am always looking for Kamikazuri paper products. They are getting hard to find. Any leads would be appreciated.

I'm experimenting with Poly-Fil. It's ridiculously inexpensive. If you're careful you can tease it apart into several extremely thin layers, and then you can sort of stretch it out to create some cool effects.

Hey Robert,

That sound like my kind of product - cheap.
Actually free cause the wife has bags of it for her crafts.
Got any examples / pics?

Yes,BNA has an extensive listing of nice goods but I have recently found because of Covid that it takes over a month for anything to get here. Or,at least that is what they blame it on.

I recently purchased some very nice 'Grass Mats' and ‘Small Bushes' from Ammo by MIG Jimenez. Here are some other products I found on the site by searching: "leaves"

I found reputable US sellers by searching on eBay.

Sorry Jerry to hi-jack your thread. But do you or any other members know of where to get asparagus ferns to make pine boughs? I can't bring my self to use Model RR ones if I can help it.
A big sorry for this. You do great work and if anybody might know where I'd put my money on you!
Thanks and keep up the great work !

The "Scenic Factory" offer the asparagus ferns and a lot more. They are my"go to" for a boatload of scenic material but even they don't offer everything. Great guy to deal with though.
