How to make a miniature fantasy landscape? Answered

From trees to inhabitens, from little villages to flying capitels.

Start by learning how railroad modelers do it.  Read up on the techniques, tools, and the methods they use. I t should then just be a small step to adapting their knowledge base to suit your needs.
Here is a start:

I was going to say that, but you said it first.

So +1.

 I build such things using mostly polymer clay.  You can make just about anything from polymer clay.  

My most recent project was a miniature terrarium made using polymer clay, a glass dome, some wire, seed beads, glue, acrylic craft paint, and silk plant parts.  

I made a base of polymer clay that looked like a woodgrain platform.  On top of that I made a base of "moss" made from polymer clay.  I then made some ferns by using wire and cutting out "leaves" from silk plant leaves.  I made an orchid plant using polymer clay and wire.  I made little mushrooms using head pins and seed beads.  I finished off with a bit of details pained with acrylic paint.  

Anyway, I hope that helps!  Good luck with your project!  Oh and if you do end up creating a fantasy landscape, I'd love to see it!  Email me at QueenQuill@gmail.com.  Thanks!

This looks like a great movie. See the trailer for some inspiration!

I've always wanted to build a living fantasy world, with real plants.

Wow! You and me think alike!
