Camden 1780 for Partizan 2018 (2)
Today I have been adding rubberised horsehair to the tree armatures I had constructed from florists’ wire
Each tree consists of 7-9 x 50cm lengths of wire bent roughly in half then twisted and arranged to make a trunk with roots and branches. Various types of tape were then wrapped around the wire structure before painting.
These are intended to represent longleaf pines so have tall bare trunks with foliage then spreading from fairly horizontal branches higher up.
The horsehair has been attached using a hot glue gun.
The next step will be to spray paint in various browns and greys prior to flocking.
