Here's a little diorama I made for Mellifluous in the Halloween in June swap:



4 inches in diameter.  Trees are wire and acrylic medium, hill is Claycrete, small gravel and scenic foam.  Horse and Horseman are modified "Prussian Hussar" military models.  Cape is paper.  The light is an LED with battery pack in the base of the diorama.

I'm glad folks like it; it was a big learning experience for me - I only decided it needed a light at the last minute (thank heavens for husband's materials stash and soldering skills!) and I screwed up the light placement initially and had to tear it apart and remake the back and make the base the day before sending....so it is by no means perfect!   Tongue
