Woodland Scenics make a ready to use white glue/water spray which dries matt and doesn't have strong smell.

Thank you I am glad you found it interesting and of use to you.

Steve; PVA glue is so cheap that I don't really bother ordering specific glues, I do however usually order the glue that Treemendus makes when getting supplies.

Really excellent. Scale trees are not only hard to find, but damn expensive!

Just seen this one, excellent SBS Darren. You make it look so easy! I think this article may help get Treemendus a few more orders, including one from me

I really like the Treemendus product lines and the owner is always willing to go the extra mile to help you get the most from them. The other plus for me at least is the consistency of the products with the forest floor scatter being my favourite due to the various components in the mix that results in a very natural look when used.

These trees/bushes are very easy to produce and its quick and easy to do.

Very informative article and looks easy to do. I only wish I knew what "seafoam" is and where to buy it.

Seafoam is an all natural product and is the above ground portion of a plant native to the US I believe. The seafoam I used here came from "Joefix" but there are quite a few places where this product can be purchased, I suggest looking at companies that sell flora and fauna diorama products.
