After seeing those incredible plants in the Dolly Varden layout, I decided to try my own plants. I drew them in CAD and cut in laser. I used regular coloured paper. Glued to a wood strip and then stained with a mix of powders and alcohol.
It closely resembles A Noxious weed that grows here in the Midwest USA range lands called "Thistle". Very spiny but yields some very pretty purple flowers. Birds love the seed from it but its hard on live stock & grass lands. It spreads like wild fire Takes two seasons to mature.
