Easy and quick way to create a diorama

Posted by Leonid Kireev on 15 Jul 2019, 10:54

I want to present you a simple and fast, and most importantly - an inexpensive way to create a diorama, a background for figures! Go...

Image
And this is my photo of the castle of Burghausen in Bavaria on the border with Austria. I edited it in the photo editor and printed on matte paper. As you guessed it - this is the background)))
Image
Image

But I use this product as a background for a photo and therefore I made it truly universal:
Want to deciduous forest? - here:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Or maybe different breeds of hardwood trees? Could be so:
Image
Image
Image

And if coniferous forest? Why not:
Image
Image
Image

What about young Christmas trees?
Image
Image

Mixed forest? No problem:
Image
Image
Image

And if just a field with hills overgrown with shrubs? As many as you like:
Image
Image

And it is possible without bushes:
Image

You can with these:
Image

Or with such autumn:
Image

Of course, I understand that I have not invented anything new here, but the simplicity and versatility impresses me! A little later, I will tell you exactly how I did it. Actually, this is the main idea of this topic))

Hello!
So, it's time for the fun part!
How was all this created? Here the most modern and advanced technologies were used)) Even nanotechnology)

An organite tablet was bought at an art store:
Image
Image

Next, pieces of polystyrene and pieces of plywood and balsa are glued to PVA glue - the basis of the relief:
Image

Then the corners of the foam plates are cut with a knife:
Image

Everything is pasted over with pieces of newspaper, for alignment:
Image
Image

After that, over the newspaper, pasted over with paper towel:
Image
Image
Image

After everything is painted with gouache paint, diluted with water with PVA:
Image
Image

On this basis, the diorama is ready. And then - what is enough of fantasy: use various powders, materials for the landscape. You can do any time of the year, any terrain, etc.
Image
Image
Image
Everything is glued with PVA glue.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Holes are made for trees:
Image

Special attention to trees:
I bought plastic tree-frame blanks:.
Image
Image

The trunks of trees covered with paint with a dry brush to reduce the gloss of plastic:
Image
Image
Image

Imitation foliage glued with PVA:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Or you can just go to the forest or park and pick up branches there and make trees out of them))

And then I got tired of it and I did this:

The basis for the first diorama. Everything is done by analogy with the previous base.
