Rather than using a branch with epiphytes in front of a regular vivarium background, think about designing it as the main feature in front of a black or open background. This will give you negative space in the layout and a much more dramatic effect.
Pardon me, I'm not quite sure I understand what I'm looking at. Is that a real branch, covered with the epoxy, then with hygrolon attached to it? Or is that epoxy just a mold temporarily around a branch (which is peeking out at the end), in order to look like the branch? Or is it something else? It sounds like an interesting idea, whatever it is.
