I looked on-line and found some You tube videos on model making and theatre set making. I used Illustration board for the walls. Initially I had 3 walls but when I tried photographing it, it became obvious that 3 walls were too closed in and I got rid of one. I made the model person out of Fimo which I then sprayed with colour. This gave a very shiny surface which I wasn’t expecting.
I experimented with various forms of lighting, using torches but in the end made the illustration out of quite a flat photograph in order to show all the different features. I did wonder about making more of a narrative out of the illustration, with a series of photos but as I had already spent a long time making the model I decided to leave it. As this was described in the brief as to give a teenager an idea of life in the era, I added explainatory text with arrows. In my first version I felt the image was too small and also cluttered. I changed the background colour and took out the arrows, moving the text onto the image and using less text.
