A friend of mine plans to build jungle terrain and he's stuck on how to create the leaves on palm trees. He have most kind of materials at his disposal and should be able to get others without to much problems.
ANY kind of help would be appritiated!
This is a method that was recommended to me, I have never used it but you can try it.
construction paper, two kinds, light and dark green
Use modeling wire as the stems of the leaves, make a simple palm leaf from light green construction paper now make a smaller leaf out of the dark. Mix glue and water 50/50 now add enough color to make it a medium green. Put the leaves together over the wire and paint it all over with glue. This should produce a reasonably convincing palm leaf. You will need 10-15 of these leaves per tree. For best results use a visual reference when cuting out the leaves so they look realistic.

I've used some (sorry to all non-swedishspeaking but I don't think you even have this freaky word in any other language) jul-ljus-manschetter, on these (the ones with "lingon och skit") you get a lot of leaves in different sizes, all made of a nice just hard enough plastic and they are deadcheap. I bet you can find about a gazillion of them in your basement/ attic. You can also find other such "ljus-manshetter" trying to look like different flowers. I'd recommend a second hand store such as the Red Cross' "Kupan or something similar.
"The ones with Lingon och skit"
Hilarious! Just hilarious!
Okay, thanks for the help. I'll let him know.
He could try something like this using plastic folaige . Looks pretty good when finished, IMO anyway

A tutorial will be coming on how I make these, hopefully in the next month or so.

Plastic aquatic plants are a good bet...
I've just seen that before and it actually tured out quite nice.
Alternatively you could also try buying plastic plants with large leaves and actually go to the extent of cutting out palm shapes from them.
It sounds pretty n00b-ish but it might just do the trick for you.
