Some nice homemade fullgrown pinetrees have been added. As you can see I have to make a new higher backdrop. The pines are made out of bamboo barbecue sticks and other types of round cheap sticks/rods. They have holes for branches which i drilled all the way true with my Dremel and 0.5 mm (0.02") drill about 15 to 25 mm (½" to 1") a part. I run 25 to 65 mm (1" to 2½") long cheap wires true the holes which i fastened with white glue. I painted the upper half of the trees with ocher and the lower with refeer grey. Then I used white gule to glue Woodlandscenic conifer green clump-foliage to the top and the branches. After it all had dried I sprayed the treetops with diluted white glue(50% water) to make the foliage stick well. When it all had set I touched up some spots with more foliage.
More information on how I made the pinetrees.
