Just finished my first batch of cacti. These are suppose to be young saguaros. I finished each one a little different to see what the final effect would be. My layout is set in the Sonoran desert so I am going to need a lot of these buggers. Your feed back and suggestions are appreciated.
I carved the basic shape out of blue insulation foam. After sanding them into shape I made the ribs with my thumbnail. I coated them with kilz and then used a couple of coats of cheap acrylic to finish them. I'd like to get spines on them but haven't figured out how to do it yet.
Woodie, I think it was your thread that really inspired me. Searching the web I couldn't find any good saguaros ready to plant. Turns out I had an abundance of blue foam when it came time to carve 'em out so I gave it a shot. Home rolled is better anyhow.
Thanks for getting the gears turning,
