I’ll start by saying that I am by no means a diorama expert – not even padawan-level truthfully. But I have done some work in the past that helped me do a decent job on the couple that I have built so far. This stone dais/platform is the second and the first time I’ve tried stone. I’ve seen plenty of tutorials and works by great dio makers and had the basics, so I dove in. And it worked out pretty well. Well enough that a few people wanted the step-by-step, so here we are! I built the top two layers of the dais prior to this, so I’ll be going through the steps to build the bottom layer, which you can apply to two more layers as I did or to whatever your needs are.
