  • Plea for suggestions.

    I've got a really cool idea for a diorama I'd like.

    I want it to be in a shadowbox type thingy.

    Maybe 6-7 inches wide, 4-5 inches tall, and about the same 4-5 inches deep.

    Would you suggest making my own (of which I have very little talent), or is there something on the market I should be looking at?

    Am I being thick, because I have no idea what a shadowbox is?

      I don't think there's anything as Deep as you want. I'd build a basic bobx that size and then get a frame for the front edge. Standard frame size would be 5x7.

        Or build the box and paint it black.

                      Considering what you all use the term "box" to mean it is VERY creepy.

                          Female genitalia? Yup. You should have seen the responses I got when I posted about having a rumage around in my box and came up with a mini.
