I saw this great method for making model trees on the Crooked Dice forum. My humble efforts don’t compare with the magnificent Oak tree than Andym has made… but I thought Id share the method.
Step one Make wire/foamboard/masking tape skeleton
Step two bulk out shape with air drying clay
Add detail with greenstuff & liquid greenstuff (you can warm it with a hair dryer to help with coverage). It is best to purchase unbranded green stuff from ebay, it is a fraction of the cost of buying it instore.
Base stones are added
The whole thing is painted and flocked and foam ‘leaves’ are added
Simple effective and robust model trees!
