The tree was flocked with a variety of different flocks, darker flocking for the main areas and a lighter flocking for the upper edge.
I used matt spray varnish as the glue and gave the tree armature a good soaking before applying the flock.
The base was cut from an off cut of MDF and trimmed to shape with a large snap-off bladed knife before being sanded smooth. I superglued a metal base to the MDF which will help to stabilise the tree when it is glued in place.
With the flocking in place the home-made tree is beginning to look like a model tree and I'll be modelling the base once the matt varnish has fully dried.
