Not the Amazon rainforest but is not bad!!!!

Hey Guys

I know you're here.. but I understand you're angry with me...and you wouldn't play ith me

I know it.. you're right.. Is not kind post a little and after disappear..


By the way the MISTERY PHOTO of YESTERDAY IS

A WOODS.... or better a componible forest in three fantastic pieces... with removable trees



I'm really happy and satisfied of them because I did them during the holidays to avoid stay always in front of the pc writing my final paper for university (to now 140 pages.... estimated 200.... so bored now)


So, let's start!!! This the big base (the other 2 are similar, just a little smaller)


Based on lightgrey hard cardboard of 3mm shaped to permit to have different combination or use them separately on table


recovered with a granulated white paste (similar for the basecoat for walls, just more fine) and pieces of cork (from the stopper of sparkling wine)
--- before recover with white paste.. i decide where put my trees (from NOCH -trees )

.. and cover the space with 3/4 plastic caps from bottle's water, to avoid cover the space for the basement of removable trees and create a sort step to hide the parts.

painted the base in mud brown
a coat of PVA glue

recovered with NOCH grass (two different type, FIRSTSECOND) putted in a fine strainer and spread on the base using little tap on the border of the strainer.






The base of trees are similar but cutted from a finest cardboard


I try to find the best option to magnetize them and the base to assure more stability (piece of metal glued down the tree basement)
with a magnete inside the greyboard base or glued on it




THAT'S ALL!!!


ANY FEEDBACK?????

thanks for reading

  2. Well, if you have to transport them, I will say magnet is the best solution (less delicate)...we've got some problems in our club about that!
    Best,
    Phil.

  3. Nice work. You could also make a few "dummy" circles to fill in for trees (like rocks or shrubbery) or burnt/splintered trees.
