Baba Yaga diorama blog

Engineering

And this is where the fun part starts, driving blind and engineering.

Do you see this picture? here I show the bits of the bridge as they will be seen from under the water -the place where those will be cut will be the water level.

Next I have been building a plastic box that I have been "gluing" on a small glass sheet. then with modeling paste for kids I place the soldiers and the bottom of the bridge. face down. i also have been cutting the tips of their hands for further use

So if you flip the diorama on the other side, that what you see:

 

 

 

Ghosts

After some 4 or 5 days pouring resin coat after resin coat I got that :

looks eerie. It looks like this when I put it on my table (no particular light effect

And now as viewed with a light behind -just for the sppoky effect

 

Covering the block

Here is Baba "babe" Yaga after a lot of extra trimming, a new right hand and thinned down ankles and wrists, she is now ready for paint.

But the scene progressed too, here is the bridge painted with acrylics -a 10 minutes work, improvising with white black, brown and green

A bit of mud on one of the corners, and there will also be some dead branches ave the underwater ones, some are seen painted on the right of the picture.

The surface of the resin is not that glossy, thanks to the product I used to help unmoulding the block. But a good coat of varnish by the end of the work and it should look fab'

Baba Yaga finished

So that's the summer and I will take a bit of rest for dioramas, Baba yaga is finished. Thanks for all the support I had for that one!

I must say I still didn't manage to take some good pictures of that thing. fact is that I should change the base and put it on a piedestal, because of that diorama to work, light has to flow from underside of it so that the transparency of the water could be very obvious.

More to follow I suppose..
