Hello everyone! After publishing a post about my first mini here, I listened to your precious advice and started gearing up for a new mini: the Mermaid (03554). It took me so long from the first mini to this one because I tried a few things on it... I first added a little starfish on the rock beside the crab, just because. And I felt her mermaid tail was a little boring, so I added little fins on it! Took me ages to manage to stick those tiny things on there, and it was my first time with green stuff. Yeah, lots of first times on this mini! Later I added some sand behind the rocks to give them more texture. And here is the finished product! More pictures of the primed and finished mini on this page, but WARNING!! She's a topless mermaid, you will see nudity! I played around with UV gel (yeah, for nails) and a nail polish top coat to add some real gloss to the water and fins, and I used matte on the rocks and a bit on the parts of her body that would have "dried" while she posed like that. I really tried to add depth and shine to this mini (compared to the other), so I used washes this time along with the dry-brushing method. Thanks to all of you who gave me tips! I used my brand new size 3/0, size 0 and size 2 Series 33 Pure Kolinsky Pointed paintbrushes for this one and I loooove them! :D Next mini: a simple dire boar, to take a rest from this adventure... Feel free to leave your comments/encouragements/tips, because it really helped me improve last time!

I decided to just create a topic that I could add to, instead of creating a list of topics like I have been doing. The the past several weeks I have been working on ONE Miniature. It has driven me to distraction. I can't imagine me being the first person frustrated with a miniature. It came close to being tossed into the lit charcoals on more than one occasion. IT Survived. I have taken 35 photo's of it since I started. I'm still not happy with it, but time to move on to something else. I take solace in that fact that we learn little from our successes, but a great deal from our mistakes. I have learned a great deal on this Miniature. So here are a few photo's:
