Curious how you make your trees? I went down the wire armature road....
Allow me to give Mick a hand with this one.....Trimmings off trees (weeds also work), spray painted, dunked in PVA, and sprinkles of dyed sawdust/flock.Curious how you make your trees? I went down the wire armature road....
Although I have made a few trees, in this case they are factory made - bought from a Forum Member (Beavercreek). I think they were made by a company called Jordan as I have some identical ones in bags,Curious how you make your trees? I went down the wire armature road....
Believe it or not, that was my original intention! The pads I made to stamp the clouds on were coated with paint using a brush and I thought I'd add a touch of grey to the "bottom" edge. However, before I got that far I had another thought - why not turn the pad/s round to give different contours! So the tinge of grey was left out. Most of my thoughts get flushed down the pan.Mick, clouds are not consistantly white (or any other colour the weather sends them in).
Try a light shading of brown or gray to the bottom of some of the clouds... see if that makes a difference.
Hi Rik. The charger is doing fine - I'm very pleased with it. Although I haven't measured its' output, even with grey skies (and that's nearly every day at moment!) it seems to be putting out 4 watts or so. When the sun appears it really puts out its' maximum 6w.Just catching up with your thread, Mick. How's the solar charger doing? I'm in the process of doing something similar with our caravan which is stored in the garage over winter. The little 4W panel I've been using isn't up to the job so I'm looking for something a bit beefier.
Looks like your trailer is about ready for the new season. I like the clouds BTW.
