#374 TECHNIQUES: Leaf weaving

Today’s technique is one used commonly for natural elements of MOCs, such as hedges, trees or bushes. It involves using the standard leaf parts and intertwining them, which not only forms a solid connection but looks more realistic and natural than if they were built normally.

Katie Walker, famous for her “cheese” slope mosaics that I have previously featured on this page, was who I believe was the first to use this technique, and the images pictured are from her Flickr account. Make sure to check out these link for some other great pictures:
