A rockface diorama - part 6 - Finishing touches

A few flower heads can be added, and I do mean a few. It is very easy to overdo. I load a small stiff bristled brush with pva and then wipe most of it off. I think touch the brush onto the tips of the longer grass fibres where I want the flower heads to be. The coloured scatter, some green can be added as well, is then sprinkled over the glue and left to dry. Once dry the excess can be vacuumed off.

To finish off, the tree is planted into one of the rock fissures.

The photos below show the finished diorama which will be used as a demonstration example.

I have a couple more dioramas to make, so more entries to follow on my blog soon.

This has been my first project documented on a blog as opposed to a forum thread.

 

Thanks to all who have found it and liked or otherwise appreciated it.

I go away from my computer for a week and look what happens! Splendid blog, Nick. I'm really looking forward to some more.

I wondered where you were hiding. A simple rail embankment is next to be followed by something a little more ambitious.
