Making the roots, trunk and brunch

I used 3 and 2 mm galvanized wire for the roots, trunk and main branches. Calculated how many branhes I would need for the number of wires to be used. I covered each wire with a piece of newspaper. And shaped the tree using masking tape with these newspaper covered wires. For the little branches I used thinner wire and directly covered with masking tape before mounting to the branches. Detailed pictures to come later….

Base for the tree

I used foam, PVA wood glue and acrylic paint. Cut the foam into a hill shape, cover with glue and paint with green acrylic after glue is dried..

Tree of life….. completed? – almost

It has been about a month I have not posted anything here. I have been working on the tree. Vaooww… 3 weeks, one tree…  I relly like trying to do things I have never done before. This is my first tree for a stop-mo set. So, a lot of fun but at the same time, a lot of things to experiment, try, learn… Anyways, making this tree has taken my 3 weeks in between my other web design works. Here how it looks like:

I do not prefer posting each step as I procees during making this tree. Because I try different things; make things and throw into the garbage,.. going back and forth… So, here you would be able to see the actual steps to make this tree without those different tries.

I will definetely modify this tree when other set elements, rocks, clock,.. are completed and enhance its look. I will also add birds which will be made out of super sculpy.. Later….
