Are you prepared all materials for Topiary? then, lets start now..!
How to make Topiary?
1. Prepare Sphagnum moss
Put some Sphagnum moss and chill in water for about 15 minutes to make it more tangle and stick together easily.
2. Draw a sketch to understand what you make
While we are waiting for the moss to absorb enough water, quickly sketch what you want to make. and while you drawing, try to figure out how many pieces do you need to make it.
3. Squeeze the moss to make shape
Once your moss wet enough, take out and squeeze out water. at that time, make few peaces that you figured out while we drawing the sketch.
4. Wind up with fish string the moss ball
Wind up each moss ball with fish string. at this stage, we are not making the shape detail so don't stressed out because its not working properly.
5. Making a shape with moss
now is time to make the shape that we like. try to put fish string through the each moss ball and wind up together. at that time, don't try to put too many things in one time but make the shape in few pieces
like this :)
Once you make all pieces with the shape that you want, join all together as you just did at the number 5, and cut left over string.
