#640 TECHNIQUES: Blossom tree tutorial
Today's post is by Ruben Ras on Flickr who has created a blossom tree using a clever technique. Check out his tutorial on Flickr here:
The unique part of the tree comes from the flowers used, as the pieces are usually removed from their sprues but in this technique they are left connected. This means they can be attached to the stems to construct a spherical canopy. From there, all that's left is the trunk, made up of 1x1 cylinders and SNOT bricks; this is how the plant stems and flowers are attached.
It's a miniature more simplistic version of this technique by James Shields, which we've chosen to credit although it's not clear whether Ruben got the idea from this originally: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lostcarpark/17026530504/in/album-72157652952649032/
