Diorama's

Posted in Custom Workstation

I'd like to start making diorama's and I was wondering what meterials work best for you guys, and if there are any tips or tricks that you would like to share.

I prefer to use cardboard and paper, but foam and wood, or a combination of the two, are definitely popular methods.

My number one piece of advice, no matter what materials you use, would be to try to resist the urge to make a cube/rectangle shaped diorama if you can, simply because that's what everybody does. Even if the location you're making is an actual box-shaped room, you can break up the outline, and make it more visually dynamic, by making diagonal or jaggedly cut walls/floors/ceilings, etc. rather than all ninety-degree angles.

Right now I use a lot of Extruded Polystyrene(aka house insulation) works pretty good for me. If you need some tips, check out my youtube channel(link in the sig).
Other people who do dio's are good to check out:
