Wire Tree
« on: May 18, 2009, 04:52:15 PM »
My first tree.

Well, not really. I've used premade and sticks but this is the first one I've made from scratch.

I"m happy with the result so I'll be doing a Terrain Monster how-to soon.

Basically, it's 24 gauge Florist wire as the frame and Super Sculpy for the bulk.

Even though nobody cares *sniff*.

Here's a second tree getting skinned with super sculpy.

You know there'll be a how-to coming on Terrain Monster don't you?

We do care Rob, it's just the forum change made things less easy to see. For a while anyway. These look great!  :lol:

This one is actually baked and undercoated but I haven't taken a pic yet. Have also made a stump.

I'm planning a graveyard so am making a few creepy trees.

here's 3 trees so far. Base coated black. Upon reflection, the stump's too big. I think 3 more trees and I'll have enough for a 12"x12" graveyard. I need to make a crypt and figure out how I want to surround it... Stone walls (easiest) or iron fence (more difficult). I want this done completely from scratch so not sure what I'm doing yet.

The stump is a touch big but it could have just been a really big tree. Can you use the same technique for fallen logs / broken off trees. A dead tree with a fallen split would also not be out of place.

Well, we do have 4 Dells in the house but I've never called them for tech support.  It was the closest flat surface without me getting up.
