Learn how to make a beach landscape as part of our miniature beach series in this quick and simple tutorial by Candy Chappill...
For an authentic beach scene, why not add a miniature bucket and spade next to some sandcastles?!
DIY miniature beach scene tutorial
You will need
- Plastic tray
- Instant grab adhesive
- Wooden batons
- Rigid plastic
- Double sided tape
- Stone effect spray paint
- Casting resin
- Blue colourant
1. Glue your plastic tray to a piece of MDF – this is to create a nice flat base to work from.
This project originally featured in the October 2015 issue of Dolls House & Miniature Scene. Pick up a digital copy of the magazine, or subscribe for year-round inspiration straight to your door or digital device!
2. Cut and glue some wooden batons, attaching to your MDF. When dry, use double-sided tape to attach a piece of rigid plastic sloping from the batons into the tray.
3. Once everything is dry. Spray the plastic sheet with some stone effect spray paint (you may need to apply two coats) and allow to dry.
4. To create lapping waves, mix together some casting resin with blue colourant and pour into your tray.
Don't miss the next part of our miniature beach series, where you can make some miniature inflatable rubber rings to float in the sea. In the meantime, why not make a collection of miniature palm trees for an iconic beach look?!
