    here is an idea for the barbed wire you would see on top of the fence how about a stretched out spring like out of a note pad or something from the local hardware :)

    I use strands of a fine metal screen. It is kinked enough, and painted rust it looks pretty good.

    I think I'm going to try using some very fine armature wire. I think perhaps that by coating it with some CA glue & then sprinkeling some iron metal filings on it ( from a brake drum lathe) I might get a decent looking barbed wire . I'll let you know how it works.
    I'm open to other ideas if anyone has some.
