Step 5: Strand by Strand... 5 down 895 to go

Ive you've come this far your doing well.

Okay so you've got all the threads you need, the netting has been glued onto your BDU's and you ready for the next steps.

Attaching the threads is a slow process so you need to be patient. Firstly you need to gather about five strands of you thread, then fold them in half making a loop, push the loop end thru the netting, then push the tail ends back thru the loop, which should look something like what I've done.


Just keep repeating that on the pants and hat, making sure to mix your colours around and not to make it to heavy. Any gaps can be filled with strips of dyed hessian, just to add to the effect, plus real plant matter can be added in the field.

Would that cheap kitchen sting work instead of hessian?

yes but at risk of sounding like a snob i think the kitchen string would not last as long as the hessian i have a hessian bag from my grandfathers house that is over 50 years old. and still holding strong.
