Fun and Learning Go Hand in Hand

This was a nice, quick little project, and well presented. Some of the steps were skipped over, which I wasn't thrilled about... it might seem boring as a presenter to show things when you could just say "I glued the thing," but I'm one of those people who sometimes has a hard time picturing how someone else might do even a simple thing, so I really like to actually see every step. The presenter also mentioned other scenes you could build in the same way, but the nature of the one he actually built on camera (using fluffy batting-style fake snow) was a totally different beast... if I wanted to do a beach scene with actual sand, for instance, I'd probably need a whole different set of techniques to keep all that from shifting around. That's the kind of project I'm trying to do, that's a bit more diorama-like, so this class was fun and quick, and I always like to see how other people approach the same sorts of projects, but for me it wasn't super useful. I'd be really interested to see this instructor carry the theme forward and do other videos on different methods for building this sort of thing.
Very easy, and you can do it with simple things. When you have no idea to prepare a gift for someone, maybe this useful class is a good idea :)
