Christmas Ornament Year 5
Rat13 posted a topic in Show off: Sculpts, Conversion, Terrain.As has become tradition the kid and I worked on an ornament this year. The ornament itself is definitely our simplest yet but even though we started early it came down to the wire as we only finished it today. Over the past couple months either myself or the kid, and sometimes both of us, have been sick. Even though it only took a couple of sessions progress was slow. After the kid saw my Gaslands conversions they were fairly adamant we should do something with a car for our ornament. Using just a Hot Wheels truck and a dollar store pine tree we came up with a plan. I expected the kid would want to paint the truck purple but I was in for a surprise. After going through all my paints they chose to paint the truck red. Aside from some cleanup that we did together, with me guiding their hand like when they were younger, the kid painted everything. Applying the wash and the sealer ended up being their favorite part. Finally I painted the year before we glued the truck and tree inside. The ornament then sat until today when we finally found the ribbon needed to hang it. Not our most ambitious ornament but special nonetheless as the kid did the lion's share of the painting all by themselves.
Gluing Clear Plastic Ornament Halves Together
Chris Palmer posted a topic in Tips & Advice: PaintingI want to try and make an ornament this year with a figure inside, and would like some advice as to the best glue to glue the two halves of the ornament together from any of you who have made such ornaments in the past. The halves are clear plastic, so i would imagine some glues will fog it. (Like superglue) Will regular plastic model glue work? Also, what do you use to affix the base the figure will be mounted on to the ornament as well? Thanks for any ornament advice!
