The base or groundwork has been painted in my usual home-made Snakebite Leather, drybrushed and washed with odd stones picked out in grey. The trunk has been painted in a dark brown/grey with hints of green.
The base was further decorated with scatter and flocking before I added clumps of ground foam. This home-made tree is 190mm tall and mounted on a MDF base that is 95mm x 70mm.
The final image shows a Flintloque RifleOrc alongside to give an idea of scale.
I'm very pleased with how the tree looks, but disappointing as it is a little fragile. The poly-fibre core isn't that firm and I would only recommend this technique for trees that are not going to be handled too much.
