wire moss tree
hi all. i want to built moss trees, and i have couple of questions that i hope you can help with.
I want to use wires, not wood. there are several reasons why, but that is less relevant; e.g. i know how to do trees from branches, and there is info on that even in TAG journal, also here on this forum.
There are couple of videos how to build wire trees, that appear very nice, but those are not for aquatic use. So, one can borrow the building concept from there.
1) what wires is it safe to use for aquariums? stainless steal? anything specific should be about this? is something like (that site) #252405782073 ok. There is colored version of this wire (that site) 262647289444. Is aluminium ok (eg that site #281657320495)?
2) once the tree is built, I assume that applying glue and place moss on it will do the job, as with all the moss on the wood etc. However, I am thinking that the moss will not steak very well to wires once it grows, unless glue is everywhere. Comments on that?
3) what material can i use to paint it, or apply some coating, if need be.
Finally, I do remember i saw instructions somewhere on the net where a guy was building gorgeous trees from wires, applying some glue to them, and something else (?), but i just can not locate that site/book. So, any relevant links will be helpful.
