How to make shrubs
I am aware of the fact that this may be the 20st version of how to make shrubs.I'll start with this item because I can do some experiences for the "bigger"item:How to make pine/decudious trees.
Ingrdients:Fibres from filters they use in gardenpondequipments to clean/clear up the water. Here in my country you have/can buy 3 sorts:rough-semi rough and fine fibre
super glue( glues in seconds, sometimes not
wire 0.4 mmdiameter.You can buy this "wire" at flowershops
spraycan or airbrush
spraycan with glue in it(do not know the right word)
leaves"woodland ,heki ,noch, selfmade from sawdust(I did/do)
a scissor(old but sharp one)
Take/pull a small part of the fibres out of the package.Twist the fibers in the midlle between your fingers, Take a wire(0.4mm diam.)and twiddl it tight in the middle of the "bunch"of fibres. Than add 2 or 3 drops superglue on the twiddled wire and let dry for more than some seconds!!
After drying cut it in the middle and you've got 2 shrubs, still not in good shape but that is why we've got the scissor!!
Cut the bunch fibres in the shape you like and color them with a "basic"color from a canspray or airbrush and finally add the leaves. Here we are, I think, at apoint that finishing the shrub is a matter of taste.I mean the leaves and color of it....Transparant/semi transparant and so on
The" leaves"can be "placed"with cansprayglue. Please do not use to much, less is better than....
The finishing touch is to spray your shrub with matte medium. I'll use the ones in a cannspray.
I add some pictures how i make the shrubs
