My aim in setting up this blog is in exploring flats (zinnfiguren) as an art form. Once thought of as playthings, flats have evolved into very artistic pieces, created for and treasured by collectors. I prefer to explore flats in a contextual setting by putting them into shadow-box dioramas of artistic merit which can be reasonably contained within a manageable space. The chronology of this web blog will hopefully blaze a definite trail in this direction.
This magnificent set was obtained from Schmiddtiel, now not available. I have had it for a few years and I intend to paint it now. The figures were spray-painted in matt grey and mounted on a wooden base for temporary display.
