Thread: Space Diorama

    Question Space Diorama

    Does anyone know how get a star backround for a Diorama?

    Currently,I get a big sheet of black heavy paper,and take an
    old toothbrush with white paint on it and "paint" on the stars.
    It gets really messy speckling on stars with a toothbrush,Does
    anyone have any suggestions for this?

    You could print the stars and paste them on instead of painting them. Another alternative is to digitally create the background and then have it printed at Kinko's or any other store that have the capability to print it (expensive though). Or go to a fabric store and check out their selection of night sky prints. I've seen some that would be good enough to use as backgrounds. Some hobby shops for model trains also have similar backgrounds (they use the term backdrops more so than backgrounds).

    I've used a poster that I found in a frames store for my inflight dioramas. Check these out.

    You could take the lazy route and simply fling white paint from a brush at a large black piece of paper from a few angles. You'd get a nice selection of random sizes and it'd be quite disposable.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    For my Space diorama I found these backrounds at the link below.They are for UltraRama Dioramas but with a little
    improvement on my part,I got them to fit in my diorama.The best
    thing about them is that its free!
