knarthex posted a topic in Works In ProgressHello All! So my daughter, she goes by Alsnia here, (posting in my account) has decided that she wants to start painting figures again. She will becoming with me this coming Saturday to the New England Paint Day in Groton, CT. So I told her that if you want to paint, you need a figure! She said that she wanted to paint a creature, not a PC type, so I sat her down in front of the 20 minis in the stash of creatures, and told her to choose what she wanted! Out of everything in the box, she choose 02712, The Eyebeast. I warned her about the multiple eyes everywhere, she said "it is harder to draw eyes than paint them...." So I left well enough alone, and aided and abetted her.... Washing the minis- She wanted to know why, so I told her, and had her clean the pieces: (Yes those ARE freshly baked brownies over there... ) Then Prep work- Showed her how to remove mold lines, flash, etc: Then we discussed if the figure should be assembled first, or the pieces primed first. She thought better to prime and paint the inside of the mouth first then assemble. I showed her the gaps where the 2 top pieces fit together, so it was Green Stuff time for the 2 top pieces: So she mixed up a pea size ball of GS An then rolled it out into a snake, we placed it where the gaps showed, put some super glue where the gs wasn't, and stuck it together. She asked my to 'sculpt the outside part, and then she did the inside part of the blending: After that, as it is a school night, off she went to bed.... If she wants to comment, I will let her edit here, or have her write her own post. Hope this helps some other parents out there whose kids might be interested in picking up our hobby by watching us from start to finish! Comments welcome! 8) George
