02695: Fungus Patch

Recommended Posts

That's cool! I haven't been posting long myself but welcome! Everyone has been super nice and helpful!

 

I have the tree spirit to paint up and am now wondering what on him should glow!

That's a way cool effect.

 

If you are handling dry pigments, I very much hope you are wearing protective gloves and a NIOSH-approved respirator with a dust filter.

   How is the glow paint working out as far as the quality and physical properties of it as a mini paint?

(I painted up a few minis back in the old days with old-school glow-in-the-dark acrylic paint, but it sucked as a mini paint, even worse than the Testors enamels I'd just stopped using in favor of acrylics.)

 

 I'm pretty sure I have that fungus patch around here somewhere, and now have the urge to paint it up in funky trippy day-glo blacklight colors... ::D:

Now that is a FINE way to introduce yourself. WELCOME ABOARD! I hope you enjoy a LONG & MERRY stay!

 

As a Mushroom Guy myself all comments may be jut a tad prejudiced. HOWEVER, your creation is GORGEOUS. The brushwork & colors are WONDERFUL; AND the glowing spots are an INSPIRED idea, one I would never have considered myself. VERY WELL DONE!

What Malefactus said about the glowing spots, inspirational.

Thanks for all the kind posts.  ^_^  I like the figure alot, and I'm kinda sad that I made it on commission for a friend, but I know I can make a new one.  The glow is really intense,when it is fully charged, and in complete darkness.  I will add better photo's later.

Unfortunately I haven't been using gloves or a respirator for this stuff, which I should.  Especially when I'm messing around with the pearlex powder.

The paint is an interesting beast in that it has to go on in multiple layers to truly get a  bright glow, it dry's to a whitish color, it dries really fast on the brush, and it leaves a grainy feel that somewhat similar to really fine sandpaper.  Though to be honest the top coat took off most of the white graininess of the paint while leaving the glow.  The powder I used is some of the new-er types of glow in the dark pigment that is 30um versus 50-70um, which some of the other sellers are selling.  I chose the 30um powders, because it went on a little smoother, and I could also possibly airbrush with it, though to be honest I wouldn't, because it might scratch up the insides of my airbrush.

 

Here's a couple pictures of my glow paint, and my poor GW Tervigon the product tester ::P:

Edit:

 

I just checked my glow in the dark paint, and found that it dried out.  So if you wish to make your own make it in small batches, because the stuff dried in my capped droppers.

      WIP #1 was animals.  
      WIP #2 will be plants.  
       
      Until Bones 3 arrives, I only have 2 sets of plant creatures.  Spirit of the Forest and Mushrooms (a 3 pack).  I decided to warm up with the fun guys.  First sliced some mold lines.  Not too bad and not being super picky with these.  Here they are ready for their bath.
       

       
      After some hot water and a scrub with the old toothbrush, I mounted them each on their own homemade holder.
       

       
      staff on the big one was noticeably less bent after the hot water rinse.
       
      then they got a diluted coat of brown liner.
       

       
      next up... Base coats.

      Here is one of my favorite sets of minis, of all time.  They're the Fungal Growth Spawn point for Super Dungeon Explore, and I based the color schemes on the various colors of mushroom monsters from the Dragon Quest series.

      I have had this one on my desk for a while and finally just went for it.  I am going to use it to represent gas spores and shriekers on the table.

      Presenting the Amethyst Deceiver: with a name like than and such great colors how could I not paint it? 
      also the shelf fungus on his back is Chicken-of-the-woods,  previously painted as one of his minions.

      Here it is the finished ten-foot-tall Myconid Cephalopod. This strange critter lies in wait luring unsuspecting underground miners or adventurers close with its seemingly harmless glowing cap and then using both of its ten-foot-long tentacles it will rend you in half.
       
      Wish I had lighting to make give this an underground look but here are the shots.
       
      These are pre-Dullcote pics. I sealed the cap except for the spots to make it a little off. I also sealed the stalagmite and growths its perched on so it looks wet. Once I Dullcote it, I will likely add a bit of gloss varnish back to those areas.
       
      As always comments are appreciated. If you see something I might have done differently or something I might improve with a different technique, please let me know. Please include links to videos and/or tutorials.
       
      Thank you for checking this out.
       
      From above the cap:
       


       
      From below the cap (slightly):
       


       
      If you want to use this idea in your campaign simply use the stats for a Roper and describe it like above. The players will never know what hit them. And then from here on out Mushrooms of any size will make them paranoid ... without eating them.
