This is a little tree I'm currently working on. Footage from this project will be added to the epoxy 101 course.
This footage covers.....
Textures of a different kind.
Flexible air roots and vines using a brand new product from Polygem.
Thin diameter branch and foliage.
Disconnectable branches with hidden seams.
Adding lights in the foliage and turning the cords into vines.
More lichen/moss tecniques.

Your killing me Mike! My iPad is filling up with pictures of your work. I watched most of the videos last night and recommend to everyone. Now I'm chomping at the bit see how you painted the roots.

Been wanting to do a Banyan type tree so watching you develop this strangler fig will really help.

Bring it on, I've got an 8 ft diameter Sequoia stump/fire-pit that I'm in the process of constructing now and can use all the insight I can get. (Talk about a heavy relief bark!)

Did I mention I want to see how you paint these trees?!? Ha, I'll just clean up my airbrushes and painting gear and try to wait patiently for the next segments!
