Then he cuts the wire in lengths, trims and teases out the bristles into branches and attaches various different materials to them depending on the type of tree.
Comte Michel wrote:Tried that, using hairy string rather than bristles. The usual result is hairy string all over the floor. And maybe 3 or 4 trees after an hour of cursing and swearing. And even then what you get tends to look like leafy toilet brushes. Fine for 6mm but I'd rather go with armatures and clumps of stuff for any larger scale.
