How to use the Brother Scanncut for Modelling Vegetation

If you want to make easy vegetation, such as ferns, for your diorama or layout and you’re modelling in a larger scale then this is the technique for you – the Brother Scanncut machine.

It’s a little daunting at first but actually incredibly easy to get great results!

Check out Luke Towan’s YouTube channel for an excellent video on palm trees using the brother scanncut machine.

You can find the templates for the leaves under blog bonus content if you subscribe to my blog.


Materials

  • Brother Scanncut Machine (http://www.brother-usa.com/scanncut/)
  • Brother Scanncut Canvas – a free web app (https://scanncutcanvas.brother.com/)
  • Paper – I have tried:
    • 160 gsm pastel paper (I used Daler Rowney but there are other brands) – it has bumps and is a bit thick (blade depth is 5)
    • Ingres pastel paper (I used Daler Rowney but there are other brands) – again it has bumps but it is nice and thin (blade depth is 3)
    • Copy paper (80 gsm) (blade depth is 5 when used with sticky back plastic)
  • Sticky back plastic
