The Minoga diorama

Sorry for not having posting anything in months. I have been working on something like 4 dioramas at a time. more recently i finished that diorama whose picture below is a teaser. it is for The Weathering Magazine which should be out in December or January or when they can really.


Finaly finished after 4 years and the half, see more here


Still Life

Just a few days before finally posting the completed Seddul-Bahir diorama (4 years in the making), here is a small experiment that i started a few weeks ago as a side project. I failed it mostly because some bubbles stayed trapped. uyet there is a nice amber feel about it.

The idea and settings was picked almost completely from a sepia photograph which is quite well known, sadly I can't remind who did it, so if anyone knows, please feel free to drop me a line!

Potestas Clavium

My new diorama Potestas Clavium -of course I will resume the SBS soon after :) This is actually a diorama that is on since end of January and I am quite happy to put it on air at long last.
thanks for looking here


Products heads up

Various techniques for the Firebird diorama

I have less time now to do SBS in forums or my own site like I used to, but yet i thought I could share some of "my" techniques that i used for the Firebird diorama. product placement? for the most part, say this to my bloody wallet!!    

Pebeo's outliner (Cernes relief)

I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.

It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)

Flex Pad on horse sculpting

The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices

Metalic pigments from Uschi van der Rosten

That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
