PostSubject: Woodland Diorama   Fri Feb 15, 2013 6:42 pm

I know I have been gone a while. While I was gone, I made 3 dioramas for the Mojo Fun diorama competition. I won the woodland diorama competition, as well as the farm diorama. Some of you have seen the photos on Facebook, but these are for those who did not. I hope you enjoy the photos. I had a wonderful time creating these dioramas. This one in particular was my very first one and one of my favorite ones to make. It was also a very big learning experience.

First will be pictures of the overall diorama.

Thanks so much everyone. I love reading your comments. I think this has to be my favorite diorama that I have made. It took the most time and I really enjoyed every bit of it, except when I didn't seal the foam good enough and the water ended up gluing the diorama to the tv tray I had it set on. Once I got it sawed off the tv tray, it was a whole lot better. I do have some photos of the progress and I will upload them to photobucket and post them when I get a chance. When I first started my daughter looked at me kind of funny and asked me what I was doing and when I told her I was making a mountain she didn't believe me. It soon started to take shape and she could see it as a mountain.

Thanks so much. Just lucky I guess on the water. I am in the process of uploading some pictures of the making of this diorama. It is taking a while so hopefully by later this week I will be able to do a thread on the making of the woodland diorama. So far only 3 of the photos have been uploaded and there are between 55-60 photos I am trying to upload on photobucket.

Thanks so much Sergey. I will show a few photos here of the process. It is such a slow process to upload them.

The mountain started as a couple of pieces of cardboard and a whole lot of wadded up paper and tape. This is where I was at when my daughter looked at me funny when I told her it was a mountain.

By the time I got here, she could start to see a mountain. This is the above covered in plaster cloth.

Extremely beautiful diorama!!! Real treat to the eye!
Where do you store it at your home?

P.S.: Why do you call those trees aspens? It seems to me they look more like birches.
