Great stuff Doug. Good tips in here.
The paintwork looks great for not being a "painting ninja" :)
What do you use as a backdrop/ photobox thingy to take your photos in? i need a new setup and yours looks cool.

Thanks, buddy. The light tent I use I got from Amazon. I think the brand name is Giottos. It folds up into a carrying case for easy storage. I think you can get an idea of it's size by looking at the last picture. I had to keep the top open for the last picture (it normally can be velcroed closed) because the dio was so large.

I use three lights: 2 halogen work lights that I got from Home Depot cheap (like 8 bucks each) and a third desk lamp that I place on top.

The rest is just photobucket brightness and contrast...

Great tutorial Doug and very nice work. I've got to get some materials and try this out. I just recently started making single figure bases using cheap picture frames. Those turned out much better than I expected. Now I would like to try something a bit more complicated.

Fantastic tutorial - I thought it was so useful that I created a short cut to it on my desk top.

I Just want to Thank Zebraten again for this fantastic Tutorial. I bought some Flexall yesterday and made this small Dio as an experiment. I have always wanted to make something like these for my figures and now thanks to Zebraten I can. Thanks again!

Awesome info! I do custom dios for my clients all the time. I like your
approach because of weight. How durable is foam? I often have to ship these.

Ive sent several in the mail, so far with no problem. I think as long as it's packed securely, you should have no problem. When the filler dries, it really makes it sturdy.
