My first diorama: holiday at the beach
« on: August 03, 2022, 10:42:01 »
This weekend I’ve made my first diorama   ;D
I combined the sets I’ve collected for my son: the beach set, the playground set and the camping set to create a bigger holiday scene.
I really like the result  :love: :love:

Beautiful work - love how you made the "ground", matching that base from the starter set, or whatever they call them. Looks great!

Nice work with the lifeguard too... Safety first!

And I guess the football players moved to the glass dome? ;)

Thank you. The ground is made of the cheap coloured paper we usually do crafts with. Luckily it was a good match.

The soccer players are indeed the clickies I use for my family. Of course we had to be in the diorama  ;)

That's great! I especially like the simplicity of the ground layer with just three colours. Often, PM diorama creators aim for realistic terrain, using sand, rocks, twigs, etc. But the toys themselves are simplified 'abstractions' of the real world, so the non-PM scenery can be simple too. That's given me real food for thought, thanks Eplay!
