A DIORAMA

"MR I. REED - ("SECOND HAND BOOKS")"


I made this little Diorama a few years ago for "WORLD BOOKS DAY. "

I made the doll with Fimo modelling clay, and cut up lots of pieces of wood in various sizes, to make the books.  Next I painted three sides of the wood, either with gold, or white paint.  Some I covered with scrap pieces of thin leather, some with different coloured pieces of paper, and some with ready printed book covers, which were free with a Dolls House magazine.  A couple of the boxes I made with very thin wood and added strips of silver foil down each side.  The smaller ones I made with cardboard.  The open book which Mr Reed is holding is just two pieces of wood for which I bevelled one edge on the two pieces, and covered them in the usual way.

The chair was in my "spare furniture" box, and the low table was a kit which just presses together.  I made the market stall myself.
