Trees

Was messing about while I am waiting to file paperwork.  So I made up some trees.  The core of the trees are made up of fabric wrapped floral wire.  These were twisted following numerous tutorials.   Then I wrapped the wire pairs with floral tape and built up the trunk.  Once the trunk was bulked out, I used green stuff to make some broken branches.  I coated the trunk and branches with latex caulk and used a paint brush with stiff bristles to score the surface to make the bark.  When this set, I used green stuff to add some fungus.  Painted, flocked and foam added.   Hope you like.
