Aloft - progress

You will notice the twig has grown a few more branches!

In order to have branches where I need them, I just add them at the appropriate place by using a wire connecter, gluing the branch in place, and then sculpting wood putty over the joint to match the joints of the naturally occurring branches. I will paint the joints to match the natural surface later - right now they just have a base coat.

The base has a nice, shiny finsh, so I will sand the part that needs to be landscaped in order for the materials to adhere properly.

  1. It looks so cute dangling out of the tree like that! And the bed is adorable.
