Please visit my new website
I have a new website at www.distant-shores.com its aim is to gather all the nature centered websites I have been doing those past few months,
This is a bit lame, but I need to change the server of this site which is so slooow, and also to reactivate cdiorama.com
Apparently, my Galilée diorama is at the bottom of the right breast of the girl model. Gee.
Finally finished! That one took me ages to complete thanks to the crosses and the trees.
Technical data: the heads of the guys are John McAfee and Stonewall Jackson. Indeed I cast every head I work on so that they may be of use on later projects.
The figures are modified ICM ones (WWI Russian Infantry, #35677).
I am still working with different backgrounds for the best pictures of that one. fast is the view from behind the tree and the crosses uses quite desaturated colors while the "front" and "side" views are quite saturated ("aquarium plants like" said one friend. So well it's not easy to get a full series of picture that will look like they show the very same diorama.
Products heads up
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)
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
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.
