Halo Diorama – Ground

Halo Diorama – Ground

In the next instalment of the Halo diorama we’re on to the ground.  It’s easy enough to add a base, use two or three products and then paint it to get a realistic jungle floor.

The only thing to note in a jungle floor is that it is made up of leaves and decaying plants so there is not a lot of earth on show, mostly a rich brown loam.

The “Real” World


  • Celluclay or Sculptamold
  • Brown Tile Grout
  • Woodland Scenics Fine Turf – Earth Blend T50/T1350
  • Noch Olive Leaves – N07140/N01750
  • Dilute White Glue – I use about 1/3 glue, the rest water
  • Isopropyl Alcohol and Water – I use 1/3 99% IPA and the rest is water
  • Artist’s acrylic paint – Payne’s Grey and Burnt Sienna
  • Polysorbate 20 (improves flow)
