The English Water Mill Diorama

Here is another terrific diorama made by Frank. This one has a terrific layout and an excellent look.

I love dioramas that have water in them. And water can be a challenge, and expensive. But Frank has found a very inexpensive way to make water effects that look great. He used a clear gel glue. And it looks great! The waterfall rapids is made from cotton wool. And the rocks in the water are kitty litter.

My thanks go to Frank for sharing the project with us.

Frank has made lots more dioramas of many different types. I have a page with them right here: Frank's Dioramas
