Hi everyone, I have created a few spruce trees using 1/8" and 1/12" dowel, some dollar store brown paint, superglue, and the green scrubber pads used for pots. I think they look pretty good, except they are kind of shiny. Does anyone have any suggestions to make them a bit more dull? My first thought would be dullcoat, but given the "fibrous" nature of the "branches", I wonder if the tree would just clog up and become a big unmanagable mess. Any advice? Thanks. Andrew PS. Sorry , no digital camera to post pics (yet...!).
