...or, in my case...the lower branches ! Thanks again, Jos, for your continuing help and tutoring (and your infectious sense of wonder and humor. Now, when I drive through the woods, I keep looking for the giant thumb ! "Tree,tree,tree,tree,tree" LOL Bob C.

Those are very convincing pine trees, you did a wonderful job. What fibers did you use on the branches?

Thanks again Frederic, Phil, Bob, Gary and Ed!!
Gary@:

Now I use "Decotwister" fibers for the "main" twigs. These are colored fibers used in the floristic industry...Overhere you can buy theser fibers in well sorted flowershops. The fibers of "Decotwister" are almost the same as the filterfibers ...AND available in many useful colors so: no spraypainting the blue or white filterfibers!!!
Here is a link to a shop, in my country, that sells these fibers( also shipping to USA!!)
!!!)
http://www.bloemschik.nl/1210-1229/Decoratie/Twister.aspx

When done with these decotwisterfibers I add some 6 mm grassfibers and finaly the small 2mm ( from NOch or Woodland, whatever...) -or sometimes even 1 - mm grassfibers from POLAK (

Jos, I looked on the internet here in the USA and can't find anything like the Deco Twister fibers. Has anyone else found them?

I have been following this thread for sometime and today I went out to hardware shops, florists, supermarkets, etc to find some of the suggested poly fibres. No luck. I tried the woodland scenics poly fibre, but as commented, it maybe a little thin in texture.

The trees showcased on this thread are absolutely incredible, magnifi-co and should be in a museum. If ever some of these become available for sale, please let me know ( cheques in the mail ).....

In the meantime I will try to master this superb tree making technique... "it's as good , as it's gets"...........

cheers

Mario

Thanks Mario!

Angela@
Unfortunately indeed they are not available in the USA but why not buy them directly from the adress I showed from the company overhere in Holland...it is not heavy at all -those fibers .....so shipping will not be that expensive...( I think)
There is a phone number somewhere on their web site and they speak english just like me( so a sort of "dunglish")
Also you can use the mailadress to order if you want to....?
( I've told them they could expect a lot of orders from the "States")

I wrote to them once, and never got an answer. I'll try again though since there are so many emails lost in the ether nowadays.

Thank you, Jos. As I said earlier, my message may simply have been lost in the ether. These anti-spam programs sometimes become mad...
The trees will make a great addition to Jacq's project.
