Cold and snowy here in New Hampshire today. So I went to place that was sunny and warm.

60085 was in charge of some silver bullets. Here they have been shunted into the siding.

Had a mailer from C=rail today with decals/transfers for the Castle PCAs. So, as I have some time on my hand might start work on doing those.

As mentioned above, have finished the tree. What follows is a step by step of how I did it, it is mentioned previously in this thread.

 

Select the woodland scenic tree you want to work with. Bend, twist remove and move branches as needed.

IMG_20200329_103553748_HDR.jpg.1980d2105d60a5fa6e6084520b7e006b.jpgIMG_20200329_103627465_HDR.jpg.b05539f0c15f4167e46919fa2a8495cf.jpg

 

Next mix up your preferred plaster and apply to the tree, and let dry. It will look a bit rough at this point 

 

IMG_20200329_105808593_HDR.jpg.9d452caaeda027c462cfe0311942d2bb.jpg

 

Then using a knife etc carve into the plaster to represent bark

IMG_20200329_111905660_HDR.jpg.fb3066a5c8fabc1e9a26668fb20ba26b.jpg

 

Brown paint was then applied and allowed to dry. This was then carved into again to make more bark.

IMG_20200329_113734945_HDR.jpg.25e802436eb4b7c4a774eeead9938f55.jpg

 

Various layers and shades of powders were then applied and sealed with dulcote.

Tea time, more steps in few....

checking the colour under the layout lighting

IMG_20200329_123123358_HDR.jpg.ff63271c0461a6573b9fbc84e0269fb9.jpg

 

Then using Summer Birch leaves I started to add the greenery. Cutting and pulling apart the pieces to make them fit

IMG_20200329_130126078_HDR.jpg.aac843ff5d0357adc53d99e93dc16f2c.jpgIMG_20200329_125549084_HDR.jpg.249f39259b9bdcdcbecc7fa48ed68a0d.jpg

 

Gradually work around the tree adding leaves, I put some more nicks in the paint for bark at this point too.

Cut off the base, and plant.

Went back in and touched up the paint, and got better lighting on the tree trunk. you can now see the shades and texture of the tree.
