Wall Diorama part 17 - The Lizard Temple

In this part of the series on the wall diorama I made the Lizard Temple.

There are some new diorama techniques in this tutorial including the use of paper and origami paper to achieve a certain look.

I also have these tutorials in a series of youtube videos that you can view here: Wall diorama Video Tutorials

The main page for this series of webpages is here


Here is a picture of the Lizard temple. It is complete but I may do a little more work on it. I am thinking that I should cover the two lights with some celluclay .

The completed lizards temple

The lizard temple is a pretty simple layout. There is a dais that the golden lizard statue is perched on. To the left and right of the dais are two light structures that really light up. I used christmas tree lights for this.

There are two columns that I made out of wooden dowels and celluclay. I painted these columns gray and gold. The remained is simply various types of paper and origami paper. This includes the back wall and the floor.

I also coated the ceiling and side walls with celluclay.

This next picture gives you a pretty good idea of the basic materials I used for this section. I added some foam for the ceiling, used wood for the columns and the dais.

The structures are first made with foam and wood

Here it is a little further along. I have added the paper on the back wall and floor. And the wiring is almost done.

Wall paper and decorations are added

Let's continue and look at the making of the Dragon's Lair and the Crystal Cave
