PostSubject: Shantis Dioramas....   Wed May 07, 2014 7:06 pm

I have been asked by Ana to show some more pictures of my stables/barn diorama.
Since I have very limited space at home I wanted to do something small, something I could put aside easily.

Here we go  Very Happy 
Background: In Germany we still have many old fashioned farm houses built with wood, stone and reeds.
Some examples of real buildings

I started with a panel and glued the wood onto it

I painted the wood in a dark bay color

Than I filled the gaps with an airdrying clay. With a piece of wooden strip I imprinted stone imitations into the clay. This took quite a while...  Sleep

I painted the finished wall parts with a paint wash

After this I used pastels to color the single stones

Because the pastels got everywhere I had to repaint the fugues with a light acrylic paint wash. This took some time too... Sleep Sleep

Thank you, glad you all like it!!!  cheers 
I never counted the hours I worked on this piece...  Doing all the little bricks, every joint between the bricks neede to be redone... After clay dried several cracks developed that needed repair... The painting part wasn't so difficult after all. Filling every joint with the lighter needed more effort and time.

Ok, here we go..
I added a large door and windows

You can open the doors

A roof added
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

First attempts of taking pictures outside. It still lacked some kind of background, so nothing would show through the windows.

Still not finished yet!  bounce  bounce

I built some kind of small boxes behind the windows and the barn door so it looks a bit of three-dimensional

Of course it has been illuminated as well

Birdhouse

After taking several pictures with my dio it was obvious it needed a matching ground. So I planed in doing a cobblestone ground for the barn, stay tuned!  flower

Thank you friends!!!  cheers cheers 

For the cobblestone again I used some airdrying clay. One part after another I put the clay on and formed the cobblestone. Took a a while... Sleep 
After drying and closing gaps from drying I painted it... Sleep Sleep  and voilá I have a cobblestone ground for my barn. Hope you like it!
