Can you guess what these are made from?
The two shallow ones are planted with muscari which are starting to come up!

I'm not sure how nmgirl did it, but this last summer I spray painted a styrofoam wig form and it "melted" like this.

I made some of those this past summer too!
The packages those Omaha steaks come in work good.

They are probably foam bases or forms and hypratufa used to cover it. Yes it was done on the site a few years ago.

They are beautiful! I tried to make some a while back but they didn't come out as nice as yours.
My mom has some omaha steak boxes, maybe I'll try again. Will youshare your technique?
