This is the figure that I sent out for the Spring Exchange. Tracking says it was delivered 5/25, but I haven't heard anything back, so hopefully nothing terrible happened to it. Anyway, my recipient wanted something colourful that could fit in the world of Alice in Wonderland, so I went for a female Mad Hatter sort of look. Sorry for the potato quality pictures as usual. The base gave me a really hard time. The first 2 things that I tried to make it with didn't work out, my original plan had been to have 2 teacups stacked, but I couldn't get the construction to work out, water effect pour went to hell, realized afterward that I should've done more to the sugar cubes and inside of the teacup rim before pouring the water effect and I re-painted the teacup twice and am still not happy with it. The teacup is made from the top of a GW paint pot...one side is thicker than the other, which I really should have shaved down more, but I nearly chopped off my thumb and gave up. I filled it in with greenstuff, which is also what the handle is made out of - I managed to pop the handle off twice, so that was fun. Overall I'm pretty happy with how she turned out, just not the base so much. Anyway, C&C are always welcome!
