Using twisted wire to make your own trees for dioramas

This week I got a chance to make an oak tree for my SU-122 diorama.

I will be uploading a full video tutorial in the very near future, but I wanted to share one of my in-progress pics with you.

It is a surprisingly fun process making a tree. In the past I have often used found twigs from real-world trees in my dioramas (see for example my Japanese Kurogane diorama) but making your own tree just lends such an air of realism, and the scale likeness can't be beat.

Like I said, a full build video is on its way, but in the meantime I present to you a Young Oak Tree in Autumn.



And I only pricked myself with the sharp wire once! Hurrah!
