“My daughter wanted a fairy tree in her room that she could sit inside and read books”


2

“I was kind of un-prepared for the physical realities of this project….”


3

18 months and 350 hours were spent to complete the project


4

Radamshome, who is an artist in the video game industry, began with a concept drawing and a scale model


5

He took private welding courses to make the tree skeleton structurally sound


6

After over 100-120 hours, the skeleton was complete


7

It took another 50+ hours to apply the wire “skin” to the rebar

11

A special mixture of cement was used for the tree trunk, and papier-mâché for the branches. Total time so far: 225 hours


13

The dad used to paint miniatures as a teenager, so he used the same techniques to paint the tree


20

He wove Christmas lights, capable of being dimmed, into the branches to simulate stars


21

The fairy details and tree decorations were found at a Michael’s art supply store


23

One happy camper! The tree is actually strong enough to support three adults!
