    Does anyone have a source for brass etch foliage?

    I’ve been looking at the realm of small scale foliage, not for any shrubbery to end up with two tier effects, and I’m finding quite a bit in the realm of paper plants. I’ve had some luck with finding Hasslefree and their etched brass as an alternate for 28mm scale. I went further and tried to pull up what Scalelink had to offer but I only kept finding their feature photos and no reference product number for ordering. My gf has offered the use of a Cricut for making plants from paper if she had them instructions for the machine but I’ve got my doubt on how detailed it can get. Does anyone have experience with this device and trying to make leaves to scale beyond the brass?

    As far as fallen leaves I’ve purchased a punch from Greenstuff World so it isn’t a problem there. All I’m looking for are things to build ferns/bracken with and maybe a few other broad leaf shrubs to fill out junglescape. Plastic terrarium pieces have already been tried and just seem to fall apart when glued. Help me Internet, you’re my only hope.

    Dried herbs glued to an armature might work

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but they do have a range of ferns etc……

    @torros Not what I was thinking but thanks for the thought. Herbs just don’t hit the mark for ferns and other small leaves. Basil comes up way too big to use and rosemary is too thin.

    @stubbybrush That is just the kind of thing I was after. I’ll dig into this later and figure the right size to use.
