A Dolphin Diorama

This is a terrific diorama that was made by a web visitor (Patricia M.) And it shows a few wonderful things about dioramas. The first thing I want to point out is that it makes wonderful use of the space inside the diorama box. You can see how it is very three dimensional? It comes forward in the box and it also has a wonderful sense of vertical space.


Here is what Patricia has to say about the making of this diorama:

  The gloss gel is painted on plexiglass (bought and cut to size by Lowe's) that is in the box like a shelf.  The dolphins are from a craft store and I drilled little holes in them to hang with fishing line. The background is scrapbooking paper. Thank you so much for the ideas and the video. The gloss gel was perfect and inexpensive.
