Darkstar Posted March 13, 2007 Share Posted March 13, 2007 Water Sorceress Tricky mini to paint, lots of hard to reach nooks and crannies. The base is something of a DIY. I started by sculpting my own 1" square base from scratch, then making a mold from the original and casting this base out of a clear resin tinted to resemble a sort of water. Let's see, the color choices obviously were trying to reflect the water based theme of the mini, mostly using blues, greens and corals to relay that whole "aqua" feeling. I'm pretty pleased with the actual color harmony and how it worked out. The water spout coming from her shell is made from 5 minute epoxy built up in layers and tinted with MSP clears, blue, green and yellow. The trick is to *barely barely* tint the epoxy with the clear before working with it. Oh, also I resculpted her bosom area to enhance the whole sheer effect of her top. Shaved off the original sculpt then rebuilt the breasts to be slightly larger and fuller before painting the see-through top. Just one of those things I like to do with these minis. :D The foam effect on the water was made by using Sno-Tex combined with paint thinner as needed to dilute the strength of the effect and "water" it down. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
