Let me react to the Overlord’s
articles in the section ”Tips:&Tricks” and share with you two
methods how to make the grain field and the snow. These methods are not
of me I have read them somewhere.
I have seen the dioramas finished using
these methods on one show and they look really great. I have also tested
them in ”rough” myself and I can recommend you both of them.
The first method is how to make the field
with full-grown grain. This method is similar to Overlord’s but the
basic material for grain is different. The basic material I recommend
you to use is the hemp twine.
You have to cut it to required length
pieces and then tease them only. Then you can simply stick them on
diorama base. The painting is not necessary because the color of the
hemp twine is like the full- grown grain has.
The second method is how to make the snow
cower. This method is practically same as Overlord’s using the mixture
of the cooking soda and the starch. The change of the basic material for
the baking powder is I can recommend you only. You don’t have to
prepare any mixture and the result is same.
