    I'm studying a photography module and have got to recreate this scene as a still photography piece/replica. I've got to use models/people and make the set miniture (seperatly and photoshop them all in together)

    Any ideas on how to make the set? I'm thinking little peices of foam board for the structure (box) flour for the snow, paint the sky/background. I don't know how to make the trees....

    Any help?

    p.s. i'm not a crafter! struggling :mad::confused:
    .....my lecturer wants me to do this scene before anyone suggests change. We will be marked a lot on the actual hand made mini set! (i know its mad)

    Chicken wire and paper mache. Salt makes good snow.
    Pop down the model shop.

    Off you go, crack on...

    How can you make a 'Kill Bill' model if your fingers can't even type 'model shop' into Google?.

    It's not difficult and it is your course...

    Gladston's ...it's my local model shop and has everything you need.

    Funny there's loads more on that list.

    Green pipe cleaners for trees I say, if you can't buy models. Might mark you higher for model MAKING rather than purchasing.

    Have you looked into your local Games Workshop? Those guys'll be bound to have terrain modelling stuff.

    its OK, but I do think allot of you forget that us students are still learning and have never tackled projects like this yet. We haven't come on here to show off, We know we ask silly questions but we come on here to ask for advice and look up to people like yourself. Before anybody criticizes: think back to when it was your early days.

    However I am thankful for the link, I will check it out and post a photo once I'm done :)
    thanks

    No problem, just to be EXTRA helpful...

    Modelling Supplies at Games Workshop
    There's one in Stoke, on Sheffield Road. They even have modelling snow but it's a fiver a tub, and probably very small. It seems to be mainly for painting the bases of those little models they use to play the games.
