    Hi Crackpot! It took me a bit to remember you (sorry - I'm just getting old) but I visited your website and remembered. I used to drop by and stare for hours at all the pretties in the galleries. hehe

    This one of course is looking fantastic! Can't wait to see the completed pics.

    Hey there,
    I think it's time to reacitvate this little thread. I am currently working on a new small diorama and want to update my steps throughout this project.
    The working title will be "The Bookworm", but maybe I find something better along the way.

    The main goal is to create a small, cosy, round chamber. For this I started as usual with a base board out of stewalin (cast was created with plasticard). On this base board I carved a wooden floor texture, wich is hard to see in this pictures. You will see it better once the first paint is involved.
    The next step was to build the back wall. Usually I would have used stewalin as well for the wall, but this time I wanted a curved wall and this is rather difficult to achieve with a cast. I could have build a tall curved cast but this would have been kind of tricky, so I decided to take another approach this time.
    This time I will build the back wall out of plasticard and modell the texture on it.
    For this step I pinned and glued the plasticard wall to the base board and secured it with rubber band.




    Next I bend two metal rods and glued it to the backside of the plasticard to get an evenly curved wall. Otherwise the plasticard tend to straighten at the top.




    The wall would look very thin if I would just add the texture to the plasticard, so I had to thicken see wall. For this I just glued some spacers and another plastcard wall to the first one. Now I have a massiv wall and I can begin adding texture to it.




    The textures will be applied in different layers to get a rough surface. The first part of the first layer is applied using milliput.




    Stay tuned for the next updates. Hope you like it so far...

    gorgeous. And I'm watching closely, since I am attempting my own wall right now.

    Feels kind of middle eastern...or middle ages. Either way, neat!

    very nice, mr diorama king! i guess you plot a cunning plan pretty exact before you start the work? i feel i tend to improvise a bit too much for doing anything this good... lol

    Well I do some rough sketches before I start building. Mostly to get the skale right. But I also improvise a lot. Many ideas come along the way. But you have to have some plan for the main components like the layout, the walls and the floor.

    So, I finished the textures on the back wall yesterday but I have to fill and sand the edges some more.
    First I finished the base layer and let it dry, then I added some more milliput to some stones to get a random three-dimensional look. Last thing was the brickwork around the window. Ah and I removed one of the wood beams. Hope you like it so far.

    Yeah, I am really starting to appreciate the part of the project where it shifts from a pile of plasticard and green stuff (or blotchy half painted lead ball) to something that sparks my imagination. neat!

    The way you added the 3D texture to the stones was very effective. Neat.

    Thanks guys!
    @AndyG: Oh come on, it's not that hard to do. Just give it a try. All you need is some milliput (or similar modelling putty) and some modelling tools. I personally prefer dentist tools.
    1. step: Prepare your modelling putty (most puttys are 2-component puttys)
    2. step: Roll out the modelling putty to get a thin layer. To prevent the putty from sticking to your table or your roll, dust it with talcum powder (you should get this quite cheap at your local pharmacy).
    3. step: Moisten one side of the layer and stick it with this side on your plasticard. Now press it evenly on the layer so it stays in place.
    4. step: Create a rough texture with your modelling tools. You can also create textures with a craggy stone or with a toothbrush or with sanding paper...
    5. step: Create your stone texture with a sharp modelling tool. Just model a random pattern, you don't have to be too accurate, we are building a medieval stone wall, so the stones can be a bit imprecise.

    Yesterday I prepared most of the furniture (desk, small table, books, books, books, carpet and so on) and began to prime it. New pics will follow. Stay tuned.
