fire

Hi gents!
On the hungarian forum I'm in, someone asked a question about how to make fire in a diorama. I seem to remember to have seen a tutorial page sometime, but it was so long ago, that I don't remember what it was, where it was.

Could you help me out with any pages you know/find?
Thanks in advance
Arthur

I think making realistic fire would be very tough. I've seen people try it with pulled cotton balls but it just doesn't look right.

you would have to sculpture the flames from a 3d point of view, the thought alone should drive you mad, somewhere, somebody is going to do it. either that or real world materials with butane as a fuel source maybe spark ignition in a diorama, think abouth it.

How about something like one of those imitation fires that have a lumpy surface with the coals and yellow and red glow. You could also add a wispy (less is better) smoke from coton wool.??

About the best one I've seen is this one, which uses cotton wool to reasonable effect. Less flame and more smoke:


Sorry, I don't know who did it and I can't find a better pic, but you get the idea
