I came across a brilliant tutorial over at bestienmeister.blogspot.com. It’s exactly the sort technique I’ve been looking for to add some more detail and texture to my current diorama project. I ordered some linden leaves by plusmodels and quick trip out to the garden provided some bamboo roots.
It needs a few finishing touches and a lick of paint but I’m really pleased with how this is working out. I will be adding a few more leafy vines over the coming weeks as I build up the detail.
