A Giraffe diorama

Here is a wonderful diorama that is very aesthetically pleasing and yet very simple. It was made by Chip Frazier and it shows a good eye for diorama composition. If you want to make a diorama yet are a bit unsure about how to do it or maybe you are concerned about the complexity of a diorama you might want to try a scene like this. All it takes is a character or two and some grass with maybe a tree or two. Here is what Chip has to say about how he made this diorama:

 

  For the acacia tree, he used a cutting from an azalea bush, stripped all the leaves, trimmed to the desired shape, sprayed adhesive on the limbs and added the bagged foilage like you use.  He used a spray adhesive by 3M, Super 77, and has been finding little bits of foilage falling off.  Now that the foilage is already on the limb, how can he "seal" it so it won't continue to fall off? Since the scene is complete he can't start all over.  Any suggestions?  I have attached a picture.

I recommended that he try a spray sealant that artists use (Workable Fixative ) to keep the foliage on the tree.
