Building the Ancient Egypt Diorama
Detailing and lighting an inside wall, which I carefully made sure that was all you could see through the temple door
Temple two made from pink insulation foam and accessorized with King and County gate and walls, and other ancient Egyptian statues found on ebay
The water feature, made with Magic Water 2 part epoxy. The hieroglyphic facade is textured wall paper I found in China and attached to Depron foam strips. that face the entire diorama
The diorama under construction. I mocked up buildings and elevations using foam insulation board until I was satisfied with the lines of sight and visual perspective of each piece.
The interior was detailed with pictures of ancient wall paintings from the net. The top of the temple was removable to place the accessories inside each room.
Two of the interior walls being detailed with Egyptian wall paintings pictures from the net, two Egyptian refrigerator magnets, and string lights found on Amazon
Using desert colored paint samples with sand aditives from Home Depot, painted each part of the diorama in multiple shades of appropriate color.
Detailing the parts of the mummification chamber that can be seen through the door when the temple top is on. The golden goddess relief on the front is a refrigerator magnet bought on Amazon.
The detail is seen through the door. The white pinetal is from a broken temple piece given to me by a friend.
Pink foam board is my go to material for bases and large buildings like the temples. After I score in the rock or brickwork, I spray everything with black auto primer, being careful not to damage the foam by using multiple light coats
The entrance to the mummification room in temple two. The rough texture to the wall is from mixing in a sand additive to the paint
