M-18 Hellcat Pt 3

 Been awhile since last post, been kind of busy. I managed to get the stone wall built up and the two tree's put together. The base seems too crowded so I might end up using just one tree.

 Here's the grass mat, with holes cut for the trees. It's really bare and flat so I need to add more growth and foliage. I used a big ole' cheap paintbrush and cut the bristles off to use as extra grass. It was a mistake to use this particular paintbrush, the bristles are cheap synthetic plastic and black. Made is hard to paint, real hard.




  The wall is made from cork board that I broke apart to the right size with my fingers. Gives it that rough stone look. I built the tree frame from wire, then added some plaster to build it up. On top of that I added some tile grout to the mix and ran a toothbrush over it to create a bark like texture. Dried flowers and herbs were used to create leaves.











 Painted the leaves with an airbrush, greens and yellows and all that.

I think you mgiht wanna try out my method of making trees. Use some 0,8mm copper wire, bend it in half a few times (so you get like 32 or so), twist them HARD, cut off the ends, dip the whole thing in glue, spraypaint them in black, then drybrush then with brown paint. add cotton swabs where the leaves should be, paint them with green spray. sprinkle some green-coloured TINY (1mm in diameter?) wood scrubs. Trees made that way look better than boisais lol

Xander said...

Geez, you have patience!
