A Great Little Pico Formicarium
Elraen from Formiculture.com has shown off one of his creations. A great little pico formicarium. He has many other projects he has been working on also.
The formicarium shown above utilises real and fake materials and creates a very natural looking outworld.
Using what looks like y-tong for the next area and an acrylic container from IKEA used for paperclips for the outworld. We love the use of real dirt and a few plant roots as well.
A job well done.
Take a look at a few of his other creations below.
