Preserved moss, painted cut silk succulents, a paper poppy, real thyme sprigs. Oh, and maybe a few tufts of dried grass. A lot of glue. Moss is sproingy.
My palette of watercolors.
Wee dotted faux succulent-type plant form. Still fooling around.
I seem to have used up most of my “good” moss clumps foliating the trees and bushes of the Sea House Pavilion, leaving mostly weird stems and sad tendrils. Not ideal for this roof.
Yay for 40% discount coupons at Michael’s.

I just can’t decide which I like best – the poppy looking like a little beacon or the word “sproingy”.
How about you can like little poppies first for 15 minutes, and then it’s sproingy’s turn.
My daughter really, really wanted me to put a living roof on my kit but I said no, it wouldn’t fit my theme. Yours is looking fantastic, I’ll have to show her.
Thanks, K! Your daughter has very good taste in eco design :)
Looking very spiffy! I too am just beginning to learn that mini landscaping requires way more materials than one would think. Your pieces are always so neat!
Thank you, EB! I especially like the gamer landscape tutorials you posted (https://wishcraftstudio.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/from-the-ground-up/). Using well-chosen pieces of bark mulch as terrain is brilliant.
It looks great, very realistic!
High praise, Bennie. Thank you.
It looks great. Your use of paint is spot on. Gotta love the Michael’s coupons!
Thanks! A sweet coupon is a very needed incentive to get me into Michael’s :)
Sproingy really describes the feel of that stuff – I like it and will add it to my expanding vocabulary =0) It’s a lot of work but it’s looking fab =0)
I’m glad you like it. I’ve been using a very nicely weighted sculpting tool to arrange and mash the moss in the glue, which I swipe clean on a wet wipe each time… its’ very satisfying.
Looking great! Also taking advantage of that Micheal’s coupon today! Haha!
Thanks, Blake! I appreciate the encouragement!
