Good Meet Last Saturday
The JRD had a good meet last Saturday with Chuck Hladik giving a hands on clinic on the topic of making trees using the fiber material over a crepe myrtle set of branches. The method is effective and straight forward producing an very nice result that would look good on any layout of the appropriate scale at a relatively inexpensive price. The crepe myrtle branches might be the toughest thing to find and I may have to seek a source of supply for myself. The fill that is used for the canopy is usually available in craft stores before Halloween as it is used for decorations. Perhaps I can persuade to move forward and make some trees.
Our next meet will be in Farmville, VA on September 8th with a full day of clinics and activities. Click Here for details
