Painting and Detailing Jen’s Book Nook Diorama!

Jen’s back with another book nook project, this time decking out her diorama design with paints, fabrics, and a variety of modelmaking materials! Using her “World in Your Closet” book nook diorama kit, Jen walks us through her process of staining, painting, and weathering the laser-cut wood, using different paint techniques to augment the illusion of depth, and layering in textures with fabric swatches. Follow along if you’re building your own book nook for inspiration and tips to detail these charming miniature worlds.
