The next picture has a few great shots of the light blueish white lichen. Which used this lovely idea here as a basis: http://miniaturefairytales.blogspot.co.at/2013/04/how-to-paint-lichens-on-trees-rocks.html?m=1 You should really check out Miniature Fairy Tales (it's in my blog roll). I added it after coming across that great tutorial on Tutofig.
Pick up a small clump of your grass mix with your tweezers and drop in onto the glue on your base in a decent sized pile. Then use the flat handle of the tweezers to flatten the grass out with some gentle pressure. Finally tip that baby up side down and give it a few smacks on the bottom to knock the loose grass off and you will be left with a fairly realistic looking patch of grass that doesn't stand straight up and look odd.
That is the base and skull finished!
