Frank's Water Wheel Diorama

Frank is a regular contributor to my website and has made a few different dioramas. This one is a beautiful water wheel scene.

Frank like to improvise his materials and keep the cost down which is very creative and a great thing to do. You can learn some tips and tricks from his work.

You can check out his other dioramas here

 

 

He tells us about the making of this diorama:

hi Will Frank again this it what I have just finished this was made out of all bits I had left over from others I have made as I told you before I try to make them on the cheap not that I can't buy them but to buy the water and waterfalls it would have cost me about $70 all it cost me was about $10 the mill was made out of  lollie sticks the waterfalls made of clear bathroom sealer the water was made out of fibreglass repair kit at a cost of $10       Do you think I made the tree too Red?
