We are still working in our tabletop.

We have done a craggy hill with pine bark.








You can see more pictures here.

Should we change anything?

Yeah! Terrific use of those materials. Great stuff.

On the other hand - and merely on a personal level - I would've liked it to have more patches of different colours, more browns, etc., but this way looks amazing anyway! Smile

I get pine bark from the forest, brilliant material for stone. Another inspiring piece of terrain. Thanks for the pics, you inspire me.

Thanks guys

Joaos, we are working in others ways to do patches, several colours and hights.

Vagabond, webought that in a Leroy Merling, so you wouldn't have any problem in a shop for gardeneres. But I don't know in Serbia, sorry.

You can take it from a forest, thanks Kev Wink

VERY NICE! The trees look SPLENDID & the wall adds to the feel of an orchard.   thumbsup 
Over the last few years I've been using more twigs & natural pieces for trees as they're readily available in my area. However, making my own much as you have done is tremendously satisfying. 
One suggestion: try using the raffia wrapped floral wire for your trunks & the thinner floral wire for branches; re, it makes for a more natural shaped armature.   What a Face

DeafNala you are our best fan! Wink

We don't really like use natural pieces, because it will spoil in a time.

Could you show up a picture of "raffia wrapped floral wire" and " floral wire". We are not really sure what it is!

Thank you!

Sure thing: here's a photo of the raffia covered wire to the left & regular floral wire in two thicknesses to the right:



Here are a couple of my trees by Heep's Place:


Some of the natural stuff lasts quite a long time; pecan, live oak, & sage brush, aka tumble weed, in particular just keep getting harder as they ages. The thing is that you should do a protective spray. I somehow don't imagine you have much tumble weed in Spain.  What a Face

Lovely tips, DeafNala! Those trees are stunningly realistic!

As for tumble weed in Spain, let's not forget where they shot Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy in the 60's! Wink

Now that you mention it I can see Spain as having the proper climate for tumble weed. Here in Texas you have to go out West a ways before you get to tumble weed territory...Friend Tom picks it up for moi when he visits his brother in New Mexico.

I do the bark on the home grown trees with plumber's epoxy putty. It's very similar to Milliput. Funny thing, now I have a real urge to knock out a few more trees...the first Spooky Woods board could use a couple more tress & maybe I should start on the next Spooky Woods board  What a Face

Just to chip in on the natural materials; tree roots are a great source of miniature trunks for trees if you dry them properly and then seal the root with an appropriate varnish. (I use Krylon Matt Finish.)

The dead tree growing from this temple is a root. The piece is at least 15 yrs old, possibly older.

I must say sorry, because I was off last days.

Thanks guys for your contributions, and thank Deafnala and Von Kurst for yours pictures.

We don't usually use natural stuff because we are looking for diferent textures and materials. Use it could be nice, but we don't like finally result.

On christmas we have done antoher scenery, a little wooden stable.








You can see more pictures here.

Thanks guys!

Add a roof?  Perhaps a nice tiled roof. Or a second level?

I roof is sure, but not a second level. We just want a little hut.

It's a little project to learn how do a building.

Well, I should remember that we are learning and improving, trying to find the best way to do scenery.


We have made a new small piece because we wish learn to sculpt stalk. Here you are our hayrick.

Well. I think that is obviusly that we need help, so if anybody have an idea, is welcome!

That isn't bad at all...it's a pretty cool idea actually. I probably would have tried covering the basic shape with either sisal (rope) fibers or faux fur (coated with watered down white glue & teased out).
It looks like the top section could use another layer to make it stick out beyond the hay below it.
If you have an old & slightly coarse razor saw you could use that to get finer strands of hay, by drawing the saw blade over the putty in the direction of the hay. Going from bottom to top would tease the putty out.

As far as learning goes, no matter how long you're working the craft, there is always something new to learn, practice, or try out. Keep up the FINE WORK...you're coming along SPLENDIDLY!   thumbsup

This thread of scenery is one of my favourites. It's giving me a lot of ideas, as I too want to make rural scenery.

The haystack is looking really good.

As for the timbered cottage, the woodwork is excellent. You can also add pins and chop them leaving only a bit of the end sticking out to pretend they're nails. I did that for my wooden fences and the result is satisfactory.
