This tree uses soft feathers. The branches are seafoam green with white tips. The trunk tissue is dark brown trunk that has been whitewashed. Note the instructions to "whitewash" the trunk are below. You can also choose medium brown as shown in the 54" version.

Whitewashing technique for The Decorated Tree’s Alpine Feather Tree trunk (dark brown trunk as seen on the 56" Alpine tree). “Old Fashioned Milk Paint” in Oyster White was used. This paint comes in a powder form and is easy to mix with water to create a thinner consistency. Apply paint to the trunk with a small craft paint brush to get the desired effect on the dark brown tape used for the original trunk. Since this tree is supposed to be “snow-tipped,” the paint gives the trunk a frosty look. Milk paint is a non-toxic, environmentally-safe paint that comes in 20 colors that dry to a beautiful velvet finish.

The paint can be ordered from:
The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, Inc.
436 Main Street, P.O. Box 222
Groton, Massachusetts 01450-0222
