This is a special failed project for me. I wanted to do something unusual with a miniature I was painting as challenge with a friend (Mayart Miniatures). This steampunk astronaut was perfect to re imagin as an underwater diver loosing her helmet, and completely cover with artificial water.

Very risky yeah, you'll never know how epoxi resin is going to react, so not happy enought with that risk, I also added an electrical component adding 3 leds to the scene, so also I needed to keep dry at least the wires sections.

Unfortunately it went not as good as expected. The walls broke while epoxi was curing due extreme heat so the mini and the background become damaged, also several huge bubbles appear in the middle of the scene due epoxy drain.

I was able with lot of hard work to repair the scene at least to become showable, also lot of learning here for future works.

    Lovely diorama, I like the unusual (and risky) idea! I particularly like the use of leds, they add a lot of dramatic effect to the diorama, bravo!

    pushing boundaries is what moves us forward, well done
    and the bubble enhances the struggle the diver is having
    much deserved gold

    A bold project indeed! I still think it looks really effective, despite any issues you might’ve had. Always nice to see someone challenge themselves and take a risk :)
