58th post - Tree (part 2)!

This post is the continuation of the 55th post.





Well, with the base, trunk and branches finished, is time to apply some foliage.
When one doesn't  have a lot of choices when it comes to scenery parts (I only have the enough for basing minis and make grounds), one has to improvise, and thats what I did.

"Ho! Ho! Wo! To the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
Rain may fall, and wind may blow
And many miles be still to go
But under a tree will I lie
And let the clouds go sailing by"
J.R.R. Tolkien


First I picked up a bit of sponge and began to tear it in tiny parts.
Then I poured all the tiny parts in a cardbox and primed them with Army Painter's Greenskin.
It results in stronger green little sponges.

After that i thought that the green was too shiny and unrealistic so I decided to use Army Painter's (again) strong tone quickshade in one of the sponges, just to give it a try. And the result was quite satisfactory since the sponge have gained dimension, an earthy look like colour and a stronger structure (since the AP's quickshade also works as a varnish).





After this it only needs to be glued to the tree (with white glue) and it's done. :D













Hope you guys liked it :D
