Thread: Re-swampifying Dagobah

    Re-swampifying Dagobah

    The last of my 3 large floor dioramas that were once flooded, many years ago, finally called to me for a fix: Dagobah. The real water that covered the dio warped the original layer of resin I had for the swamp, so it was time to put a new layer with some color variations rather than just a solid brownish. I did just that, by mixing in a couple different colors before and after I poured it. After it dried, I propped it up on its side so I could drill some holes under Yoda's hut to string in lights. You can also see in this pic where I put some papier mache' for repairs.



    After that dried, I painted in some color and drybrushing, tested the lights, and crumpled up some leaves for the ground. Here are several pics of the finished dio, somewhat better than the original effort I think!

    That looks awesome! It needs a knobby white spider somewhere and possibly some mist. Love the multi-colored water.

    I used pillow stuffing (lighter than cotton).
    I had considered using witches hair but that is only sold around Xmas time. It is long silky threads used for snow or tinsle.
