HO Scale Sagebrush

HO scale Sagebrush.  I used 3M stripping pads from Lowes torn into small balls and painted primer grey; weathered with some dark earth powder; top 1/3 dipped in Mod Podge Glue and smooched in sagebrush blue ground cover foam from Hobbylinc. This bush is about 1/2" in diameter.  I really like the result.
