Finding a diorama base can be quite difficult. If you have few woodworking skills, live in a small space, have to keep the noise down, or simply don’t have the tools, you may struggle to build a diorama base.
There are options however.
- You can have the local big-box store cut boards or plywood / MDF to size,
- You can use foam (available from said big-box stores) cut to size, or my favourite option
- You can use picture frames, and plywood / foam.
You most likely have a few picture frames hanging (sorry for the pun-I could not resist) about somewhere. If not you can find them at the local thrift store for a couple of dollars.
In this article you’ll follow along as I build a diorama base using a spare picture frame, some Fome-Cor(TM) and additional bits and pieces. In later parts of this series I’ll work through the steps I used to get the diorama to completion.
