Coconut Palm - Using Craft Cutting Machine
A couple of months ago I made a palm tree from scratch, I didn't use and specialist tools to complete the tree just a whole lot of patience!
Now that you've seen how effective a handmade palm tree can look I'll show you how easy it is to get even better results with tools made for the job. I use the 'Brother Scan N Cut 2' machine to cut out each individual leaf and it makes light work of it!
It's not cheap to buy one of these machines however if you have the opportunity to try one or possibly see if some friends will split the cost of the machine so you can all use the cutter it can be quite a good investment.
But I'll let you be the judge :) I'm in the process drawing up the story board for the video so hopefully it will be out in the next week or so.
Over the next several months starting in June I will be hosting a number of scenery related clinics at my local hobby shop! Click to find out more.
Trying to balance between working to pay the bills, spending time with the family and setting aside time to do some modelling and making YouTube videos can be tough. This blog is a bit of an outlet between those times.
Finding good information online can sometimes be difficult, in this section I have a list of influential creators that regularly upload articles and videos to YouTube and provide useful information with respect to modelling.
It's not often that I endorse a product but there are definitely certain products out there that I use and love. If I find any useful tools, materials or products that I like I'll write a review here.
If what you want to see is not on the list you can type it in the suggestion box, if it's something I'm capable of I'll include it in a future tutorial, I'm no expert but I'll sure try my best to get the information you need.
