Dabbling with the Dio's

Post #1 by niner » Sun Jul 15, 2012 10:07 am

Thought I would venture into my 1st Dio.

Made myself a small wooden base and got some materials from the local quarry along with a couple of granite sets for the backdrop.

I'm going to have a go at a couple more through the day but this is the 1st for now.

Excellent, it doesnt take alot to create a very realsitic scene and its better to use the real materials to get a good effect :rockon:

Cheers for the good comments. I think the real stuff make a world of difference, Im lucky to have a quarry on my doorstep to nip into and 'borrow' some materials.

Ive really enjoyed doing them to be honest. Im in the middle of doing the garden up and I think there may be a dio area planned in 8-)
