I have looked at writeups on many static grass applicators from make your own (which I did) to a host of ones in different price ranges. The one I made does not work to my satisfaction. Looking for forum comments from members who might have used any of these.
Also do's and don'ts when applying the grass , best results.
Thanks

I have one of these: https://www.micromark.com/Economy-Static-Grass-Applicator-by-Grass-Tech-USA

I really like it, especially when you realize that some of them sell for north of $100. I've only used it with Woodland Scenics flock, but it should work with other brands too.
I'm not really sure I'd say there are a lot of do' and don't's. Don't touch the screen to anything, especially not your body.

As far as use, I do a square foot at a time, paint it with full strength matte medium, and fire the grass on to it. If you want more grass, wait until the matte medium is dry, then spray it with dilute matte medium and re-fire. Pretty simple, really, although it does take a few tries to get the hang of it.
