#942 TECHNIQUES: Clip-connection trees

The natural shape of trees can be something that's hard to create with LEGO, but a unique technique can be utilised to create some very organic shapes. It involves using clips and bars and connecting them in an unconventional way as shown, allowing the positing of various leaf pieces. Although putting stress on the parts and therefore it being classed as an "illegal" technique, try it for yourself and you'll notice it only places a little stress on the pieces, so in our eyes it's a valid and worthwhile technique.
