Newly finished, WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87616-making-another-background-for-photographing-miniatures/
This whole piece went faster and easier than the first. This final step was using a very heavily watered Burnt Sienna (Apple Barrel) with (too much) dish soap. I usually aim for a small drop or two, but this ended up with a squirt! So using my sponge to apply, it actually sudded up pretty bad, but I was able to poke at the bubbles and blow them off the paper to get basically what I envisioned. I'll call it a win!
What I don't know is whether to call it. Is it finished sandstone or yellowed parchment? Suggestions on names? Next theme? Anything? Enjoy!
Finished this a while ago actually, but am just now posting the finished product. I got a bug and am now making a few variations on these--just on art paper for the moment, but I wouldn't mind having them printed on neoprene or something a little more durable. Now I just need more minis to photo in front of them! Let me know what you think.

I started this in a WIP and have finally finished my first background for taking pictures. This one is made with fairly lightweight watercolor paper. I taped it down tight, primed with gesso, and built up from light to dark layers (all cheap craft paints). The concept was for the whole thing to appear nebulous, as a dark cloud with obscured lighter flashes. I think it turned out pretty close to my vision. The half-painted creatures are just my first test shot with the background. My phone camera did occasionally try to focus on the background, so on the next attempt (some kind of brighter theme) I will try to soften the edges (paint started to dapple on the blacks and grays). What do you think?

For those curious, the bug is primed in Reaper brush on primer, black, and it's carapace has two coats of Golden's Interference (purple-green) paint. Boxy is clean Bones, primed with Brown Liner with Old West Rose fleshy bits. They'll get their own WIP soon.

I wanted to share a new campaign that I've just started:
Featuring a snap-fit modular design, MAV3RICK is a 3D printable kit that can be configured into a number of different vehicle variants:
Take a look, I'd love to know what you think.
Thanks for looking!
Imagine a camera with no lens, no focus, no mirror and definitely no batteries that can create images like this.
No need to imagine anymore, it is here. This will change the way you think about light, time and memories. We have created the ONDU pinhole camera series MK III to reignite your spark in photography, and most of all to enable you to create captivating images with light in the simplest way possible.
There's a lot of nice pictures on the project page. Enjoy them, then back the project.
I own the very limited edition 'Box' from the first KS(less than 20 were made), and the 6x17 OnduRama from the second KS, and both are very nice cameras. They did have issues that caused delays back then(with getting the machinery delivered and so on), but they were pretty good at keeping backers updated. But now they have all the machines in the workshop, so I expect there won't be any big delays this time
Necessary disclaimer; they considered me so helpful in the comments section that they gave me a 135 pocket camera as a bonus. so yeah, I may not necessarily be completely impartial.
