Thommo Posted November 1, 2021 Share Posted November 1, 2021 (edited) Finally finished. Tried several new things: - A bloody expensive limited run resin kit. It was a dog. Poor fit etc. Did my best. - BMF. Great on flatter areas, very tricky around compound curves. - Vallejo Still Water. Would be good for small areas of water, but not so great for my creek which had to be 1.3cm deep. Don't use masking tape for a 'dam wall' to hold the water in, as in longer sections, the still water will pull it out of shape. Don't apply Still Water in more than 2-3mm layers (mine needed about 6 layers) else it will take forever to dry. It tends to shrink a bit to, and will climb up items in the diorama and form a lip. I had to trim the lip against the masking tape off with a blade. Also, it mysteriously went cloudy in areas well after it had been poured? Will try clear resin next time I do a larger body of water. - Home-made trees using a video of an Aussie-based diorama maker. Worked quite well, could have bulked the leaves out more though. And we don't have saltbush growing around here, so I had to use lavender plant twigs, but they were quite good. Edited November 1, 2021 by Thommo Quote Link to post Share on other sites
