These exclusive Green Branches make it easier than ever to make quality, tall fir trees for your layout.
The principle for using this foliage is simple:
Just tear off a chunk and stick it on the trunk!
Made from coconut husk "coir" fibers, white glue, and our own green flocking material designed specifically for modeling evergreen fir trees.
This material is like no other available today.
Green Branches Foliage comes in two varieties: Thick and Thin
What's the difference?
- The THIN material has one layer of coir fiber and one layer of green flocking. The original notion was that it could be used on smaller trees because it is thinner. However, in practice we found the good results using thin material on any size tree.
- The THICK material is essentially two thin layers on top of each other. These can pretty much peel apart into two thin layers. You have to do the separating, but you essentially end up with two Thin sheets, plus extra loose turf.
So, it really just depends on how many trees you plan to make.
BOTH work will all sizes of trees.
BOTH look great!
In summary, the THIN material costs a little less, but you don't get as much of it.
In my humble opinion, the THICK material is way worth the small increase in price!

That's right! We're talking about a new material that not really anything new here, I just started making it so you can play with it. And just for fun, I'm calling it BEAR FUR, 'cause that's what I think it looks like. Heh!
You can do a lot with this stuff. It is coconut coir fiber bonded together with white glue. Simple, like shredded wheat maybe.
Ideas for you: 1) Use as armature material on trees that you add green to. Or try some other color of foliage. You can use it to make deciduous trees, or odd-shaped fir trees, like I do. 2) Weeds. Weeds Galore. Makes a neat "blackberry bush" appearance along tracksides. Add a little green stuff for some leaves why don'tcha?
3) Fir trees undergrowth. 4) Dense background forest foliage can't-see-through-it material. Ok....Ok...You get the point! Try Bear Fur! Don't worry, it's declawed. :( -rr
What the heck? "Bear Fur"? Yep, you got it straight. Bear Fur! This is no ordinary stuff. This is our Green Branches, without the green! "What do I do with it?" Bear fur can make trees that don't seem so full on the inside. It is basically fir tree armature material. But also you can use this on deciduous type trees. And, it makes interesting weeds like blackberries you see dead along the sides of tracks. If you just brush the edges with a bit of white glue, you can add any foliage turf to it, like green for living blackberry bushes, or fall colors, or anything! I made these fire-burnt trees with Bear Fur. It's neat stuff, and it won't claw you up! :) One 16"x24" sheet.
