Found this little thing on Twitter.

Guy says he uses 'Noch' leaf flock for his.





Maybe this technique is already in this Forum section.

I've done something similar but using jute twine or stranded wire.

I'll cut the jute in about one each lengths,
and stick one end into a blob of glue and left to dry. 

After the glue has dried I'll unravel the jute,
and slop on some green paint and let dry again.

With strand wire I solder one end together,
and then paint green.

I don't flock because I'm making desert plants,
but you can certainly flock to your hearts content. 

When the green paint is dry I crudely dab on some yellow paint,
on some of the ends to represent flowers. 

And then plant.

Very nice.

The yellow really captures south western scenery.

I've used a few other colors for a bit of variation.

Unless you are looking at sand dunes,
the desert does have a variety of plant life.

Even Death Valley, perhaps the hottest place on earth, has vegetation. 

Salt Creek, on the valley floor,
is a year-long steam that contains the Salt Creek Pupfish.

Wow, that's a great idea!
