Video - Adding New Bark Over Old Bark - Gnome Home Update

Happy July 5th everyone!
I finally got to film a quick update on the Gnome's B&B. I've been working on tunnels, a new room, a new bridge, stairs, adding more bark, windows, and fungi.

I took a few moments today to also show you how I add new bark over old bark adding depth and tons of texture. I do this quite often to my trees,  it is the reason for all the nooks, crannies, and  tunnels. This technique adds so much more interest and character to an old tree.
I hope you find some inspiration as you watch!
