In the wake of “I am two bullets” I’ve decided to jump back into the mix straight away and make another diorama. I’m due to start a new job in two weeks from today and I will need to get it done by then, unless I want to delay it to September. No thanks. With that in mind, then, this new diorama will have to be… tiny. I want it to be done within 8-10 days (although I am at the whim of some suppliers to deliver materials!).
It’s strange, I have a whole bunch of ideas I want to make (ranging from small to HUGE – one in particular has me itching to get going) but this little one has just jumped out at me from nowhere. It’s a simple idea, nothing overly new… but I’m hoping to brush up on that figure painting skill as I mentioned.
