Finding myself in need of a couple of woods for a Flames of War AAR but without any larger clump foliage, I tried to improvise some ivy covered english trees.
I had some Woodland scenics tree armatures, a bag of mixed flock and pva glue.
Basically, take some pva glue and smother the branches of a tree. Dip the tree into the bag of flock and there you have trunk and branches covered in leaf-flock.
The mix was a bit too yellow for my liking and a bit too much glue on the branches. Sometime less is more.
If you think trees should always have leaves look at the real picture in the slideshow…
