lexomatic's re-based dollar store tree

What part of the dollar store did you find this? I may have to check out my own DollarTree for something like it.

It was just with the fake potted plants.

So I tried flocking the base  and when I was sealing it, managed to loosen all the paper towel I was using for texture. And the tree came off.

I beveled the edges of a dollar store wood square  (about 4x4in) and will be re-basing the tree on that. I'll also be turning the old base into some spell damaged scenery? Maybe a few weird vines. Thinking about adding purples and pinks to the area that used to be under the tree. Thoughts?

All for now. Need to re-level the base of the tree trunk. See if that helps with glue. I might cut off the roots ifbthey wont sit flush as well. That was a problem the first time.

 A couple of roots were still sticking g up so reglued them and put cat tins (back on) to weigh them down. The weights helped immensely this time. I did a little outlining of the tree... mostly because of the blob of turf that got pulled up from the last basing that I couldn't get rid of. That area at least will need a bit more flock tonight. Nothing new to see until tomorrow probably.

      It has been a while since my last post, I'm am just struggling to find the free time to sit down and paint or build at the moment.
       
      Anyway, this week I got the opportunity to run some run some 'build along' model making workshops with the kids at the Youth Centre where I work, and we have been putting together little X-mas themed display pieces.  It was actually pretty fun being able to share and introduce a new generation to the joys of my nerdy hobby.  I was pretty pleased with how they turned out so I figured I would share. 
       
      The base is just a piece of log, and the moose is a very cheap plastic toy (I repainted mine), which I managed to find at a local discount store in big buckets of 50 animals for £2, they really cheap and nasty, but actually paint up nicely.  Everything else is just standard modeling stuff, sculptamold, static grasses, clump foliage etc.
       
      On another note I have not forgotten about or abandoned my Apocalyptic Suburbia Journal, it is still sat on my desk gathering dust.  I plan to get back to it in the new year.

      This year I'll be spending the week between Dec 25 and Jan 1 at home... like a lot of folks.   I'm using the time to finish up a few figures languishing on my paint table and prepare for a clean(er) start in 2021. 
       
      I'll get some photos up as I prep.  Right now I am planning to finish:
       
      1640 Cat dragon in tree
      3893 Mal, catfolk warrior
      3894 catfolk rogue
      3977 Mercurix, winged cat
      77576 female sphinx
      several Cats and Catacombs figures
      a trio of Alkemy Khaliman Republic figures 
      some 3d printed tressym (winged cats)
      whatever else strikes my fancy at the time
       
      Paint along, or not, as it suits you.
