Operation swinging



In the 4th  of May 1945 the German army  surrendered to the English forces in the Northern Germany. The story of this diorama depicts the return of a group of surrendered Germans with the escort of some English infantry men.In a brief stop the miller offers his fellow citizens a proper lunch while a German and an English infantry man constructs a swing under the kids surveillance.A symbolic action for some peace at last in Europe.
 Some photos of the finished diorama. Ready for swinging...

River

Making a river is always a challenge. Mine has about 1,5cm dept and needed four layers of clear resin to accomplished. Some turquoise blue added in the first two layers and the other two were clear to increase the feeling of depth.
 I made a frame with two strips of varnished wood and some tape. I then poored the resin layer every three hours 

The two first layers have that color

No1
 No2
No3
 No4 with some more dead leaves in the riverbanks
