Wow outstanding. What kind of glue did you use to keep sand in place?

 

Hello

 

I don't know how you call it in USA, but it is a kind of glue to paste wallpaper.

My dad talked about how he and mom made wallpaper paste back in the 40's, I thought with flower but on the net it says starch. Lots of info about making your own cheep wallpaper paste out there.

 

I am wondering about your ivy. Did you do something to keep it looking live or do you leave it once it drys out? Makes me wondering if there is some kind of liquid to put it in and soak up that will somewhat preserve it? Like embalming or plasticizing. (While typing this I looked up "Plastic Ivy Vines") Well it turns out you can buy plastic Ivy pretty cheep. Now that I think of it Hobby Lobby has a large fake plant area to look at now.

 

Some great possibilities here. Thanks again for sharing these wonderful displays with us Leopold!

Hi LuftSalg1

 

May be I don't really understand what you want to know about wallpaper glue, but that's what I am using for my work.

If you cut ivy in summertime, leaves stay green for many months, otherwise years.

The ivy branches in my room have been cut few years ago and I have never change tem.

Hi

 

After this first trial, still in 2013, I have decided to test other techiques.

 

A new deal with this mannequin who have another strange posture!

 

I have use plants that don't lose leaves when they are cut. 4 years later, leaves are still in place.
