Nuts

That's it! I'm officially nuts! Or at least I made a lot of nuts. This time they are chestnuts, walnuts and hazelnuts. I still don't know what the hardest part was, making them or inventing the best methods to make them. I really love the results, although I have to come up with a better way of fabricating the spikes on the chestnut bur next time. I used sisal fibers, but it came out too thick. Maybe I should have used painted hair, like I wanted at the first place. First thought is always the best...
The leaves are mostly the perks of my big garden. (The chestnut leaves are from the internet.) I scanned them for printing onto silk paper.

My daughter argued with me that those were not mini nuts...until she saw them on your finger. She still couldn't believe her eyes. LOL

FANTASTIC JOB!

I agree with everyone. Not sure I see anything unnatural on the chestnuts.
