Wire Trees

These trees were very easy and quick to make. Taking various lengths of fuse wire i just wrapped them together and used the longer pieces to make the branches. After that, to take away the obvious wire construction i mixed PVA with Plaster of Paris which i just glopped on, then painted and drybrushed them. I used 2 different types of sponge flock for the foilage and have been finding sponge flock to be just the right texture for anything 15mm.

This is a very common and old technique. I'm not sure who to give original credit to, but god bless'em.
