Well, one day I'll go quiet but it seems that is not at the horizon yet. :old dude:
I ended long ago my short romance with Facebook but then started this thread.I hoped to keep in contact with all friends but then there was a serious problem because I've lost my old Yahoo account and with that lost also access to my old Flickr wich makes me unable to know if someone is sending me messages to any of both.I still can see my old Flickr but only as a visitor which means I have no access to the 'only for friends' area. So, yes, there is no more movement there.But there is some action here:

Oh, yes, I know very well you make great trees.
My balcony provided some of those flowers and I am trying to make something as you did. But have some questions:

1)

Are you using the natural 'trunk' or are you gluing small branches to a separate trunk?

2)
Do you treat the flowers with glycerine or do they stand the pass of time without issues?

3)
Are those natural colors or your work?

Would be great if you could post some photos of the process of making those trees and the scene...PLEASE?


Daniel

Thank you Daniel.  I did have a look around your Flickr account.
It is very hot here.  Over 40 on some days.

Trunk depends on requirement.  If I making a serious tree I will combine a few flower heads together.  To thicken a trunk I often use build it up with artist paste which can be sculpted. 

Sometimes I build a tree from wire.  The wire is wrapped with florist tape, it is self adhesive, and artist paste applied. I wire from top down, not bottom up and only use florist wire because it doesn't hurt my fingers. Start with two wires to make small branches then move down tree adding wire as you go.Base of tree leaves is black poly fibre stretch so it is barely visible.  Flock is sprinkled onto the poly fibre.

Flowers are not treated but sprayed with pressure can adhesive. 

Colours are muted greens flock powder.  Our greens  are normally a dull green moving to blue green.

Yes, I know you are having a hot Summer there.
But Google Maps shows you in shorts and with a very cold beer in your hand reclining on your deck chair in your garden!:wave:
