Very impressive. Such a cozy bucolic ambience they create.
Maybe outside the scope of this article but is there a tutorial or explanation somewhere of how to do this for the first time? The pictures are great but I would ask...
1. What kind of wire is best?
2. What is the flocking?
3. What kind of glue?
4. What kind of paint?

In the most recent issue of the online journal "training" Dirk describes it perfectly in detail:

Oh that’s great. I’m covered now. And it takes what? A minute or two per tree? LOL Thank you.
It should be out in English soon.
Yes, it will be out soon in English, too.
Yes, a few minutes.
Don't forget you may need more than one or two........... ;-))
