      From my Shelf of Shame, a set of essential dungeon dressings: equipment designed to extract vital information from captured enemies.
       
       
       
      I had done most of these pieces up after getting the Bones Kickstarter 3, mostly as practice for natural wood textures.  IIRC, the basic formula used here was a base of 09074 Buckskin Pale, with a wash of 09310 Sepia Wash over it, followed by an edge highlighting of Buckskin Pale once again.  Metal parts were done with 09206 Tarnished Steel with a wash of 09312 Steel Wash.  I don't remember the formula for the (brass) Iron Maiden.
       
      The reason it languished after that was the final piece, the glowing brazier, which waited until last night to be painted:
       

       
      I was intimidated by doing a fire effect, and at the time I didn't have any idea of a technique to do one.   So  i just threw down a bunch of yellows and oranges, with the high areas being the darker parts.
       
      Overall, a pretty decent first attempt at a fire effect... but I get the impression that the prisoner might get drizzled with cheese fondue instead.
       
      (That makes 9 minis taken down from the Shelf of Shame this year!)

      Part of my goal for the year was to reduce my literal Shelf of Shame:  The minis that I started and put down and never came back to.  Some of those minis are recent, some extend all the way back to when i started painting minis in about 2014 or so.
       
      So as the first installment, here are a few things I've painted since the beginning of the year:
       
      First up is the Pillar of Good and Pillar of Evil:
       

       
      I forget why I had these on the shelf.  I think I was intending to paint them along with the rest of the dungeon decor from the second Reaper Kickstarter.  While the barrels and crates were finished long ago, these languished until now.
       
      They are painted with a green-stone mixture:  Vallejo's Model Air Dark SeaGreen and US Light Grey , and drybrushed with a mix of US Light Grey and Model Color Dark Sand.
       
      I did the Pillar of Evil quickly, but then needed something to practice Reaper's NMM Gold Triad on, so the Pillar of Good got the treatment.  Flowers are Reaper Punk Rock Pink, with Breast Cancer Awareness Pink highlights.

      Second up is a collection of large vermin Dire Rats:
       

       
      Not every mini can be a hero.  Some have to be rats.

      These have been on the self of shame since the start.  They were painted and stripped several times, and even served as test minis for various primers.  I didn't care much about them, but they were on the shelf and are a quick-and-dirty (!) painting task.  The paint job is table-top quality, but I did like the final coloration, so I'll record it here for the Giant Rats I have to paint later:
       
      Fur:  Layer up with dry-brushing:
      MSP Walnut Brown
      MSP Russet Brown 
      MSP Intense Brown
      MSP Intense Brown mixed with any ivory color on your palette  
       
      Tail:
      Base: HD Entrail Pink
      Highlight: MSP Old West Rose
      Detail: MSP New Copper
       
      Finally, here is the current state of the Shelf of Shame:
       
       

       
      (I told you, it was a literal shelf!  It's a shadowbox made from a plastic 12" x 12" picture frame and foam core board.  See: GCB Tries Foam Core Joinery.)
       
      They're mostly Reaper minis I have to finish/repaint.  The notable exception are the Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion figures on the top shelf.  This group should be entirely doable, by the end of the year.  Then I get to pull out new minis to paint!

      "Come out to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs..."
       
      First, let me explain "why" I made this.  Yes, "Die Hard" is a Christmas movie.  The same as any of those Hallmark channel movies, "It's a Wonderful Life," or "Elf."  I can feel my teeth rotting just mentioning that movie.
       
      Second, my wife wears holiday pins everyday for the month of December.  She even wears a pair of pins on occasion.  She has too many to fit into 25 days.
       
      Since this became a tradition, as is watching "Die Hard," every year, I started planning this craft project.
       
      I did have this sidelined for a bit, mostly due to not having the right size "vent" I wanted to use for the size of the pin.  I finally found a rounded corner rectangular set of cookie cutters (pkg of 10) that fit the bill.  LOL
       
      So with laminated pictures of John in the can, as it were, I cut him in and then added UV resin to seal him in.  A generous layer of resin.  Then I added a cutout of his head and his hand with the lighter to add some depth.
       
      Voila, John McClane in the vents of the Nakatomi Building. You might have seen some ornaments around the 'net.
       
      Here are some pics as well as my wife sporting the pin today.
       

      Just john bent into the "vent."
       

      John with a cutout of his head one layer in front of the background pic and his hand and light another layer ahead of that.
       

      Sadly a few bubbles formed on the top layers.  I got a few out before hardening the resin.
       

      The pin in place.
       

      My wife's new Christmas Pin.  LMAO
       
      It has two pin backs attached to the back with the UV resin.  Both with the clasp end and pin point down.  Easy placement and closing.  Holds it in place well.
       
      I think I am going to find a mini-bow for the top and add a ribbon around the outside.  Add to the Christmas presentation.
       
      For those wondering what UV resin I used... I got a couple of .75oz bottles off of Wish for the job a while ago.  Worked well.
       

       
      Enjoy and leave your thoughts and CC.  I am interested in hearing what you all think.

      As you can see from the title, I'm a noob playing around with layering. Or glazing? I'm not sure about the difference, in the tutorial videos I watched, both techniques come down to painting diluted paints over a base coat.
       

       
      I've painted the armor with a black-and-silver mix, then painted over with diluted silver where I imagine the light hits. I'm happy with the effect. I feel like I've messed up the face. I layered Vallejo Paint Bronze Fleshtone (over that color + white) to simulate shade from the helmet, and tried to pain the eyes gold because she's depicted with glowing eyes in the official artwork. I think I should just have gone for skin-wash... I hope I can salvage it. I also see now that I haven't been thorough with removing the mold lines and messed up the gold detail somewhat.
       
      I'm a bit unsure about what to do with the hair and, well, whatever you call this piece of clothing.
       

       
      I painted shades on the lower part of the hair, in the areas where multiple layers of cloth overlap and on the right where the wing is above it. I just glazed over with a red + black mix. I'm kind of going back and forth thinking that it looks too dark and smudgy, and (especially on the front) not dark enough. I'm also unsure if I should add highlights or shades on the wavy part. It's relatively flat, and most tutorials I've seen deal with robes that have very deep folds.
       
      I definitely want to add highlights to the hair, but I don't know what color. Mixing red and white would give pink, and that doesn't seem right. I tried glazing with orange, but wasn't happy with the result, so I glazed over with red again. It's still slightly visible.
       
      Some other minor detail, I've tried to paint the shadow of the body on the base of the wings. Not sure I like it, but you only see it when you go looking for it anyway...

       
      One more picture that I took, can't really think of any commentary.

       
      Any advice on layering or any other things is very welcome!

      A trio of animated snowmen, definitely up for trouble for the holiday season!
       

       
      Definitely a fun and quick seasonal paint-up. The snowmen are painted up in Reaper Frosty Blue and highlights of Pure White, with Vallejo Azure providing the deep shadows and lining.
       
      The bases are dead simple, using the same colors and some Americana crackle medium for a subtle cracked ice effect.
       

       
      I really like how the monocle came out on the top hat snowman!
       

       
      I think of the three, the candy cane carrying snowman is my favorite.  His derpy upturned face is visible from anywhere across the table, and the tattered Santa robe came out quite well.  My daughter suggested that the end of the candy cane should be spattered with blood effects, but then my wife would never let me  put it in a holiday display!
       


      I went back and forth on the color of the hair for the bowler hat snowman.  I was going to repaint it black, but tried changing the color in a paint app, and didn’t like it.
       
      I did one last thing to tie the trio together — I gave them matching scarves!  My daughter took one look and said: “They’re in a gang!” — she got it!
       
      Happy holidays, everyone!
