I was inspired to make Fairy Tale dioramas after I came across Sybille Adolphi’s delightful book, Making Fairy Tale Scenes.
Just look at such an irresistable Cinderella kitchen scene!
excerpt from Making Fairy Tale Scenes by Sybille Adophi.
I made multiple sets of Cinderella’s. I find it particularly fascinating to make dolls with surprises, such as the topsy turvy dolls that can transform from one look (Cinderella the scullery maid in tatters) into the next one (Cinderella in sacque dress at the ball in Versailles) with a secret movement by the child.
I also enjoy making the little dioramas that go with her. Such as her little bedroom from a box. Fireplaces with “fires”, rustic little broomsticks, aprons, etc little things like that are fun to make for the doll.
