    Sorry if bothering, im new in this so i have lots of questions! :) Would war-hammer figures go good with this? I mean, are they compatible in the size to make the diorama look proportional with the figures?

  • Erica Helton
    Erica Helton 5 лет назад

    What can I use for a base? I would not like to use plaster. I was thinking wood but I don't know. any tips?

  • epicfantasy

    you are welcome! Have fun with the diorama making! And you can use sawdust too if you want. Just add colored paint to it.

    @EthanDagRaven I like to use woodland scenics turf. But you can make turf with sawdust and green paint.

    @rexyrexerton ya I just used it for a diorama and real dirt worked great!

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @rexyrexerton I have a vid somewhere here on how to make mud . I think its part of my ww2 diorama series of tutorials.

  • rexyrexerton
    rexyrexerton 6 лет назад

    @epicfantasy Thanks, turned out pretty well. Now I've got a new question; how do i make something look like mud (not muddy water)?

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @rexyrexerton dirt would be quite good. I have used it before. Just strain or screen it out first.

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @chiyome21 something not quite right here. I don't have any hydrocal at the moment so I can't check it. Maybe have another person review the process. It always works very well for me. I know it works fast so you can't delay. You only have about ten minutes to use it up. before it does get too thick.

  • rexyrexerton
    rexyrexerton 6 лет назад

    So the first time I made hydrocal, the directions said 3 part hydrocal to 1 part water, but it was a thick paste that didn't really work well. So I tried again using the same measures and it was a liquid and worked really well. Since then i haven't been able to get a good mix. Any suggestions? Also, would real dirt work well as dirt on a diorama?

    @Xythe43 I would carve a cactus out of foam.

    @123xxx82 you could use paper mache. It's flour and water. I have a vid on how to make a paper mache diorama.

  • Saif Swan
    Saif Swan 6 лет назад

    Sorry, this is a really nooby question but instead of hydrocal, could you use something like baking soda or baking powder. And I don't really have anything for the terrain, what else could I use for it?

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @w0wrox You are very welcome! Glad I was of some help and thanks for watching my videos. You go ahead and make some dioramas and be sure to have fun!

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @jo3m25 You probably can but your diorama will smell like oregano! And, I don't think it would be good for the long term. but if it's an emergency..

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @TheFewzz the color depends on the terrain. When it is finished will there be sand? then you should get a sand color base too. Otherwise black , green, brown is pretty good. I think that one bag will be enough.

  • Woolie
    Woolie 6 лет назад

    I have a green, black and brown paint , do i need any other colour?
    Also it sounds silly but the one i am about to start on is about double the size you are making here.
    Would one of those bags of grass cover the whole thing? hard to work out how much you need.

    @jesternario I think that would work. I have never tried it though.

  • jesternario
    jesternario 6 лет назад

    Why not use spray paint for a base coat instead of just painting?

  • epicfantasy

    @TheAustinsmiley I will look it up. Can't promise but will look. Sounds like an interesting project.

    @willtomason Static grass flock works well but only sparingly and for detail work. The majority of the base should be much finer like fine turf. The flock is almost like bushes. It is definitely good to use though, looks great , but as additional touches.

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @willtomason My main terrain is the green woodland scenics fine turf.

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @THERANDYORTONFAN100 Lots of ways you can improvise. Cut bristles from a paintbrush to make tufts of grass, Break up a green kitchen sponge into little pieces to make green terrain. Real rocks and twigs work well. Lots of things you can do once you start looking around!

    What kind of paints did you use in this demonstration and where would did you buy them?

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @legostarwars72 If you want fast and easy pick up some clear caulk in a hardware store. Check out my make a waterfall tutorial. Shows how to do it. If you have some time and want better looking water then use a product called Realistic Water by Woodland Scenics. I have tutorials on this too. You pour it in and let it dry.

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 6 лет назад

    @lrprais Woodland scenics make a whole range of great earth color pigments. You should look through those and choose the colors that would be right for your terrain. Ballast would be good for sand, or even sand! you can buy it in small bags.

    @XxZomBieEaTfLeShxX i use a clear base paint and spray the parts where i want mud then i mix water with outside dirt and spread over parts where i want the mud then spray the mud with a thick clear coat it works great.

  • epicfantasy

    You could simply paint the diorama muddy colors, or you could mix up some paper mache, die it and use that. Or you could use a product called "Realistic Water" You die it with paint then pour it right in and let it dry.

    I am not positive but I bet you can. Try just a little section first to see how it works out. Good idea, thanks.

    Woodland scenics paints are the best for this. they are formulated to give good terrain colors. But I say go with whatever you can get. I wouldn't use clay, does it harden? Would be awfully heavy. You would have to experiment with paints, and can always paint over if it doesnt' look good enough.

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 8 лет назад

    They sure do. All kinds. Different colors and sizes.

    do woodland scenics produce gravel???

  • epicfantasy
    epicfantasy 8 лет назад

    I use two different types of glue in this segment. First is regular old Elmers white glue and second I use something called Scenic Cement from Woodland Scenics. Its pretty much white glue watered down 50/50 so you can spray it on.

    I use a variety of paints for figures. I like paints from companies like Reaper miniatures and Citadel. But you could use plain old Hobby Acrylics that come in the small pots rather than the tubes.

  • LaxChode

    what about the type of paint you use to paint figures?

    I used Woodland Scenics Earth Colors. They are the best! They give it a great look thats very realistic.

    Absolutely! Paper mache is only the cheap option. In this tutorial I use a product called Hydrocal which is the best. you can also use plaster of paris which works great.
