PostSubject: A new tree experiment   Thu Jul 15, 2010 2:57 pm

I was looking at trees and plants and saw a model of a pine that I liked so I sort of copied it and here is what I came up with. the foliage is not attached because I am going to use a better type, but I have to experiment with different methods. I used dark green moss to do the needles for the photo, but the permanent needles I haven't even got a real clue how to do them. I bought one pine each from 4 different companies and I will pick the one I like best and try to duplicate it. If anyone has made their own pines and knows what looks good I would love any help or suggestions.

Here are two photos, it was late last night so the flashed had to be used, I will try to get some photos today without the shadows.

Here is the next type of foliage. I recieved a Woodland Scenics pine and it looks like they use their turf products as the needles. I used a mix of the course and fine turf, in the earth colors, and just used a light glue to hold it on. I have used this method on the bushes in the African water hole, and when I switched to custom trees found it is easy to remove the foliage as long as I don't use too much glue. Here is the results, please let me know which one you like better, and I will compare it to the next one I recieve, there should be 3 more pines coming from different brands for me to try.

I think the first foliage looked more like a scots pine then the second one.

It is depending in which diorama you would like to use this tree.
It almost looks like a bonsai to me... Rolling Eyes
