The Evergreen Sprouts Needles

Let's put some color on the tree armature we built in the last post.



The above video details the process I use to turn the tree armatures into something that more closely resembles an actual spruce tree. Matereials used are cheap brown spray paint, Woodland Scenics fine turf in a dark green color, and Aqua Net unscented hair spray. I find that the first application doesn't cover completely but after a coat of hair spray the turf really sticks.

Here's a shot of the finished product.


And that's all there is to that! They're not perfect, but they are quick and inexpensive, so they fit right into my model railroading wheelhouse. Hope you enjoyed the story.
