    WOW! Well done all around! I love the plants and how they look like marine plantlife. Very nice touch with how they're blowing in the wind.

    I'd love to get a materials list on what you used for these. I'm looking at doing some dioramas myself.

    For the base I used styrofoam covered with liquid white glue for wood and with gauze and gauze bandages to get texture like this vintage diorama from catalog:


    Gauze is fixed to the styrofoam elements and also covered with liquid white glue for wood.

    Then painted using acrylic spray and with dry brush using acrylic colors...

    For flocking I just cut pieces from two different green and one brown old sweaters then I used the same wood glue to cover parts of the base and then cover it with flock.
    The pink plants were made from tracing paper painted with acrylics form both sides...


    I also used:

    sisal fibre,
    artificial fur,
    wires,

    acrylic yarn also covered with liquid white glue for wood and then painted...

    I hope this helps.

    Not a big garage, Grayskull diorama was made for the exhibit, and it will be probably used with the new ones for similar purpose in the future...

    I'm only coming to this thread now, but it's so inspiring I had to comment.
    I can't believe you managed to make the stilts reasonable for their environment, that's amazing. Good job!
    You've given me a deeper appreciation for the MotU backgrounds. Thank you.
