"I agree, I loved making models through school.  Here is a sample of my trees.  I used a silver thick gauge wire for the crowns and wrapped it around the trunk.  It was kind of a pain and required a good amount of squeezing to get the…"

"Our school's workshop had a special saw for cutting foam core. It was similar to a jig saw but the blade was a small-diameter file that sort of buffed out the imperfections as it cut. Pretty cool tool."

Wyatt Thompson, PLA replied to Ryan Mills's discussion 'Model making'
"The key to foam core (and most card/mat boards actually) is a sharp blade. I've known people to replace the blade after 3 or 4 long foam core cuts. That may be extreme, but it might also be worth it to keep the edges looking nice. Lana is…"

Lana Merrill replied to Ryan Mills's discussion 'Model making'
"By the way - I would stay away from foam core - it can be SO hard to make it look clean and precise. Plus, it also tends to look heavy. If you do choose it, go for the thinnest size you can get."

Lana Merrill replied to Ryan Mills's discussion 'Model making'
"I agree with Wyatt as far as materials. If you're going to a white monochrome scheme, mat board, white tissue paper, cardstock/printer paper, and baby's breath is a good combo. If you're going for a light brown/cardboard look, chip…"

Model making

One of my assignments for my landscape architecture degree has asked for a presentation model of the site we are designing. In needs to have no/minimal colour and show plant massing, textures and forms. I was wondering if anyone knows what would be the best materials and methods to use? would scrunched up tissue paper work? or is there any better suggestions?See More
