Tomb Raider Underwater Escape Diorama

Tomb Raider Underwater Escape Diorama

Tomb Raider is one of my favourite video games and this is based on many of her underwater scenes. I wanted to show her escaping the inevitable bad guys whilst swimming towards the next tomb…

This uses rubber water which is great for encapsulation. I hit a couple of snags but overall, it is much easier than the equivalent resin as it does not heat up and you can pour the whole cylinder in one go.
