I painted these fronds up first with black primer, followed by Dark Angels Green, then drybrushed with Sunburst Yellow, then washed liberally with Dark Green Ink to give it a nice gloss as well as a nice green look (green ink giving something a green look... who would have guessed?):
Moving on to the tree itself, here's the stump (already primed black) glued to a large base:
Glue on a trunk.
Glue on a trunk with a branch sticking out:
Paint Scorched Brown:
Drybrush with Vermin Brown:
Wash with watered-down black ink:
Glue on some of those awesome fronds with the aforementioned green effect that's so hard to get:
Here's a side-view:
Glue on some sand with some thinned-out white glue:
Glue on your vines cause it's the jungle. Duh.
Now some watered-down white glue over it all to seal it:
Time to watch some illegally downloaded television while it dries:
Paint black onto the base.
Beastial Brown heavily drybrushed on top:
Followed by lots of Desert Yellow:
Then the magic color: Bleached Bone.
A dusting of Skull White and Bestial Brown around the base to clean it up.
It occurred to me that, because I now know how to do this tree thing and it seems to work, that I could try something and put a few drops of GW Water Effects on the base. I used the GW product instead of the Woodland Scenics because it's harder to control it in smaller spaces (both because of its viscosity and the small spout you squeeze it through... not to mention that I still have a bottle full of it).
When the water is cured, I'll take a snap and show you how it turned out.
Now, to repeat this process roughly 40 more times and I'll have the trees made for the jungle table!
