A Country Landscape And Farmhouse Diorama Made Completely From Recycled Materials - 2 Of 4

I made this diorama and backdrop painting from recycled materials. I got myself an old piece of wood for the base, covered It with plaster that my neighbour was throwing out, the trees and hedges are made from synthetic cushion stuffing, then I painted with Richmond green emulsion paint. The trunks of the trees are made from old used matches I found lying about outside a GHA office In Trongate Glasgow Scotland, they must be from all those smokers that stand outside every day puffing their lives away, :( anyway, the telegraph poles are made from thin copper wiring, and shaped Into telegraph poles, the little fences are also made from matches. The little farmhouse and barn Is made from cardboard, the little vehicle Is a Micro toy car, a Chrysler people carrier I think. I painted the little house and barn, and everything else, with emulsion paints by Dulux paints, really great paint, I even did the backdrop painting with this emulsion paint. This Is a model of my grandmothers farmhouse that my twin brother and I lived and grew up In, It was heaven, such a beautiful place. It was In a place called Ballindrait Lifford In the South, Donegal Ireland, not far from the border with Strabane In the North of Ireland. I hope you you like this diorama as much as me. :)
