O Green World (Katsutoshi’s)

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

New terrain project here, of a green world.

I just thought I would start by the trees. So here are the first two ones. They were supposed to be roughly the same size but then one is really bigger than the other. Nevermind, I’m doing a lot of those guys so there will be plenty of these size differences.

I really enjoyed doing it, it’s lot of fun. And I know the next ones will be better, I understood a few things while doing them.

Air-Dry Clay ! So all you have to do is mold, you don't have to put it in the oven afterwards, you just let it dry for 2 days.

It cost me 20€ to have a huge quantity of it. Enough for maybe 15 of these babies. Creating them is very fun and I'm learning a lot by doing it. It takes me roughly 40 minutes per tree. So it's a win-win : it costs almost nothing, and I got to learn / experiment. Next step, I want to try to mold some statues... now that will be challenging !!!

I had no prior experience with clay nor with terrain building (so anyone can do it!), and although the result can of course be bettered, I'm really really happy with it, it really stands out on the table !

The plus side : the trees are realistic dimension-wise. The small trees always bottered me.

Thanks man !

2 more trees !

I have the feeling I’m getting better at the stripes on the trees. They look more and more natural imo.

I will do a couple of fallen trees also to confer some light cover. That and an adaptable river, a swamp, some small hills and some pieces of rock... 😊

I also got some small mushrooms on greenstuff world, will look good at the base of the trees !

Air drying clay isnt heavy. If i had to make a tree like this i would fill the center with something lightweight like styrofoam. The clay would still have to be rather thick (~1cm) to avoid that it cracks. The clay is britle.
