  1. After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back. So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing. Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point. After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force. Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp. Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars. With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress u
  2. Here are 4 twisted wire trees I made. Three of them use moss from a craft store package, one used Woodland Scenics foliage. They all use Vallejo Earth Texture, Woodland Scenics scrubery, and Army Painter Lowland Shrubs. Here is is an average wizard under a tree for size reference:
  3. I have some minis I want to pin (or attempt to, have never done it before). I have wire, tons of paper clips, and am going to acquire some brass rod soon. But my question is about the clippers. I know I shouldn't use my sprue cutters for most things beyond plastics, resin, and other things like those. So my question is what kind of clippers (cutters?) Do I need to cut the metal bits down to size? I don't want to ruin my good clippers by cutting something too hard. I saw some in the jewelry section at Michael's but wasn't sure they'd hold up in the long run since it said it cuts so
  4. Apologies if this isn't the best place, but Talespinner's monday miniature thread got me thinking about how art is constantly evolving and how sculptors have continued to push the bounds of what is possible with our media. Here's a link to the artist's website: Ellen Jewett (no commerce links, you have to get on a mailing list for sculptures... I checked But she does sell prints of her work. ) This sculptor isn't a miniaturist, but her work is something I'd love to try out on our scale and probably what I'm going to work on for my next project, only with human forms rather tha
  5. Time for a critter that seems a staple of the Call of Cthulhu game. Amusingly, most of the depictions, including the Grenadier and RAFM sculpts of the creature ignore the "grotesquely great clawed appendages" line. I'll keep with this tradition since I think not having limbs keeps the creature more "otherworldy". Took a coated copper wire and started wrapping newspaper around it. The wire will let me shape the critter as I want later. Used masking tape to make a skin to bind the newspaper. Measured more wire to make the wing base Drilled through the body and
  6. I've been real lazy of recent, so a minion of Tsathoggua seems quite appropriate. Top row's colour was thrown off a little. Bottom row is pretty spot on.
  7. On my WIP thread I am using a piece of plied wire to represent a chain on a character who weilds one. I offered to post a tutorial on the technique, so here we are. Plied wire is a technique used by the Vikings to create jewlery - typically they took four wires of silver or gold and created a bracelet or ring. However, the end result is very chain-like, so I thought it could be useful in miniatures for making a chain. Here are a few examples of the wire: It isn't exactly a chain, but it does read like one. In order to properly do this tutorial, however, I need to start be explaining
