Excellant tutorial.  :) What kind of glitter did you use for the petals?  All the glitter I've ever seen is really tiny.

Nice profile pic MJ, I'm sure it is a good likeness :)

The flakes are indeed pretty small, and crazily enough you can get it even smaller than usual if you want to. The immensity and variety in the 'world of glitter' is absolutely mind-boggling. I had some left over from the Japanese cherry tree project I did for an LPL entry. I'll take a pic of what not to use when I make a tutorial for that. In the meantime here's what I ended up using:

Although glossy, it is opaque and non-iridescent- which is more important for certain things.

The next time I make some trees, will try your way.
Thanks.

You coated them with used toilet tissue?  That's taking recycling a bit too far!

Seriously, this a a great tutorial - thanks for sharing.

I have to wonder about that Toffee Brown now.

actually I use that color quite a bit myself in my terrain. Thanks for sharing the inspiring pics, I'm currently expirimenting with some trees, this will definantly help.

This will be of a great help for the Jungle table that I still want to make :)
Also any advice on how to convince the missus that the extra space that the scenery is a necessary good?

Your trees are amazing. I wanted to make some large trees too but never found a suitable technique. Your tutorial is really helpful and your entry was one of my favourites.

Thanks for putting up this tutorial. I'm rellay impressed (both by the simplicity and effectiveness) with your method and will hopefully get around trying to build some trees myself. Really cool!
