PostSubject: A few new trees   Sun Oct 13, 2013 9:26 pm

I just finished a trio of trees, two palms, one from the genus Salacca, the other a robellini palm, Phoenix reobellini (for some reason the species name and common name are spelled differently), and an oak sapling.

Here are the Palms, they are on eBay as a set if anyone is interested, under DOLLHOUSE TREES
The Salacca


The robellini


The pair together


The sapling is modelled after a live tree that is stressed by drought, most of the outer leaves had died and fallen off but the inner foliage was full and healthy.  This gives a good look at the tips of the branches, I do all of the trees the same, but in a "healthy" tree the twigs are hidden in the leaves.  Here are a couple of photos, it is also on eBay along with a taller sapling.

I would love to have your talent with trees, then a collection truly would be fun to look at. Great job!

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you all like them! I've started a full sized robellini palm that will be done in a day or two, I'll post some photos as soon as I finish.
