Mythical Agyptian Palm Groves

All the trunks and palm leaves are cleaned.

 

I used air drying clay to build up some small mounds into which I pressed the palm trunks.

 

The oasis was filled with a thin layer of leveling compound to hide the texture of the floor tiles. I then glued on some smaller rocks, before covering the whole base in PVA + my base colour and sprinkled on fine sand.

Mythical Agyptian Palm Groves

My Agyptian Terrain needs some vegetation. I have these plastic cake decoration palm trees for several years lying around, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to give them some purpose.

For the bases I again used the off-cuts of the floor tiles. I cut them in a way, that they fit in my standard storage box.

The edges were curved in random shapes and then beveled.

Here are the palms.

They were dirt cheap, the quality is accordingly. So I had to do quite some cutting and trimming on the trunks.

The leaves also need some trimming,
