    Two more mushroom guys

    These were made by me out of fimo air (I have recently strated making these whenever I have leftover clay from my other sculpts, which is always ). They are super quick and simple sculpts but I like them. They were actually painted by my sister and I think she did a lovely job. I apologize for the flash in advance, I just didn't menage to set the lighting right so their faces can be seen

    Fimo Air Blights

    During the last few days I've sculpted these out of fimo air classic and then painted them. Really happy how they turned out :D For the whole crafting process check this thread

    Beholder

    My Mum the other day gave me a heap...well actually ALOT of fimo that my Dad had bought when he was alive as he was going to make beads to sell alongside his wood work creations. Was bored the other night and remembered that my GM asked to see if I could sculpt some kind of Eye Tyrant or Beholder out of some of it. This is the first attempt. Ended up being a little cartoon-y. Reminds me of something from Simpsons or Futurama. Is a bit of a WIP. Never sculpted before other then making bases. So this is my first attempt using fimo.
  4. I am of course in way over my head here, but I am trying my hand at sculpting now. I've looked at a bunch of guides and tutorials, and played around with GS and fimo. This project will hopefully result in a pseudodragon for one of the players in my group, or at the very least a nice learning experience. Unfortunately, I didn't think of creating a thread until after I've started, so in these pictures I have already made a "skeleton" out of iron wire and added GS and fimo to it. Now I am waiting for the GS to harden a bit so I can start sculpting "for real".

    Having fun with texture!

    I happen to be an engineer, which is a more fancy word for "super-lazy". As such, I started thinking of shortcuts as soon as I started sculpting, and I've been gathering different stuff that could make for some interesting texture for bases, conversions and such things. I have now used these stuff as "stamps" on some fimo, and then painted it black and dry-brushed white on top, so I have these little references that show the texture more clearly. So, here they are! An interesting button. Might work as a screen behind a druid, or a floor tile of sorts. I didn't remove the button hole marks, but that could be fixed quite easily. Rough, but thin, rope. Two marks, side by side, might look like tire tracks. A bunch of these marks together look more natural, sort of like wheat. A big bead. Makes for an interesting effect, sort of reminds me of a bee hive. Another button. This texture was very subtle, but when dry-brushing it I was amazed at the effect. It could be something made out of glass, like a window. "Natural" cork. Looks like rough wood to me, but might be the side of a cliff or stone as well. Fine-grained cork. Could be sand, dirt, or some other natural base. Rough cork. As above, I think this would suit as some sort of stone-base, just a bit rougher. The wrong end of my hobby knife. Very industrialized and pretty cool I think. This would probably fit well in a sci-fi environment, maybe as a steel floor. The side of a matchbox. Almost the same effect as the bead, but more subtle and a bit more structured. Maybe these pictures can inspire you, or you could give me some advice on what you think the texture might look like. Feel free to add your own pictures in this thread as well, I think it is pretty interesting since some things will look quite different when there inverted.

    Sculpey Base Tutorial

    aka All Your Base Are Belong to Us! This tutorial will teach you some basic and some intermediate ways to use Sculpey to create custom bases for your miniatures. First, some basic information. Sculpey is a polymer clay which does not self-harden. It must be cured at 130 C/ 275 F, baking time based on thickness. After it is baked it is rigid, can be sanded, carved and painted. There are several types. Fimo, Sculpey, Super Scupley, Scupley III, Premo, etc. It is less expensive than some of the other sculpting materials available, making it great for basing projects! It is similar to standard ceramic clay in terms of workability, but a bit more elastic. It can be stored for years, and only requires a bit of kneading to soften it again. You will need: Why super sculpey, you ask? Because I have some! The same thing applies to the tools- you can use just about anything to shape sculpey. Wooden tools, pins, flatware and especially fingers! But for the projects below, I specifically used the tools above. The pin tool is from a standard ceramic set and the other two shapers from a wax carving set. We need to start by waking our sculpey up. It will come in an easily separated cake of cylinders. Break off a piece, knead it in your hands, warm it up, roll it around, etc, etc until it's nice and pliable. If you've never used it before, play around with pushing different textures into it. Rocks, sandpaper, pinebark, plastic wrap, canvas, and cork can all create interesting patterns. Plus, you'll get a sense of how much detail the sculpey can hold. It's not as much as some of the other sculpting materials available- which I think of as a plus. It won't really hold a fingerprint for example, so you can safely pick up what you're working on. It makes it a very forgiving medium for beginners! And you'll quickly realize it has the best quality of all- it does not stick to everything! Now, what can we do with this sculpey? How about cobblestones? Those make great bases, right? So here we're using the thin shaper to carve stonelike shapes and smooth our edges. That sort of pattern can be created very quickly with just the single shaping tool. I like my cobbles to have curved edges, making the stone looks more 3-dimensional. Bricks, or a brick pathway is another option. Here's an example of how to use the pin tool (like a thick needle. A small nail would also work if attached to a handle) Using our trusty Canadian Sandpaper as a guide, the pin tool creates a brick layer. Then we go back and add the individual brick shapes and add some details. Cracks, slightly curved edges and the sandpaper texture can all be used to make a more realistic brick. I also used the thin shaper to curve the edges of the brick. I've only added details to the top bricks to illustrate the process. But this is boring, you say! Bring on the fancy bases. We want props! Ok... for this next project we'll be using twigs from the garden. Here I've stuck a few twigs in a slightly carved lump of sculpey. I rolled out some little coils to make roots and pressed them on. Now I smooth the edges of the roots with the larger shaper. Then add texture to the roots with the pin tool. ...and we have terrain! In our next installment I'll go step by step through an entire base! Stay tuned! Let me know if you all want more detail or clarification on anything.

    Science Fiction Orbital Cavalry

    In this thread I'll post about an experimental, speculative project about 28mm Science Fiction soldiers. These troopers are a sort of air cav/paratroopers but in space. The first part of the project was to figure out a design. I was mostly concerned with it having a coherent look that was practical and aesthetically pleasing. As part of the design process I sculpted and painted this 1:35 scale prototype / design sketch. There are more details about the project on my Blog. Next I might do some sketching, start a couple of 28mm armatures, do another 1:35 sculpt or all of the above. Comments, suggestions, questions and critiques (especially) will be met with deadly gratitude.
