This is one of my favourite models and I love your take on him!

I really like the green slime! But if you think it's too solid, I don't know about using varnish, but you can use the same method but use a water effect. I think drying time in between drops would be pretty long though. I'm pretty sure that you can also use super glue, but that might get a white cast to it rather than being fully translucent, I'm not sure.

Gorgeous - love the 3 color pallette of green magenta and gold teeth!

 

I like the slime a lot - the shape is perfect - what it lacks is "roundness" of lighting - clear paint would do this - but even within what you have a little shading to enhance the curve of the drop would do wonders

 

magnificent!

 

bookmarked for inspiration when i paint mine!

This was one of the first minis I ever painted so I love this model. You did a wonderful job and I love your color choices. The clever addition of the slimy saliva really adds character to a model already oozing (pun intended) with character! Nicely done!

Thanks! I will try with water effect next time.

Thanks, and I'm honoured that I can inspire you. In that sentence I would have to notice that I got a lot of inspiration from the Reaper Inspiration Gallery, especially the one painted by Mutilatedlips and from this one; https://www.etsy.com/listing/219902758/mocking-beast-by-reaper-28mm-well

 

I will try to add a bit of shading to the drop.

      I wanted a traditional Black Pudding, but I didn't want to just paint it black. When I started to think about how to make this stand out, I started to think about the shimmer that oil gets, and I wondered if Black Puddings get that shimmer as well. I looked up some photos, and thought, "I bet I can do this." Like I said in the other thread, I'm planning on putting together a tutorial on getting this effect, so that'll be up soon. This one was fun to paint! I love all the little bits and bobs in the ooze.

      Just two little blobbies that are the result of killing mama with a slashing weapon. I'm working on typing a step-by-step tutorial on how I did the holographic oil shimmer with just regular paints, so that'll be up in a couple days!

      Howdy,
       
        Here is one of the slimes with different color glitter paper cut to the foot print...

      These are my first two painted minis in I think several decades, with probably fewer than 10 total even including my old figures. Being me, I decided to start with easy figures but non-standard paints. These were scrubbed, then primed with Army Painter Anti-Gloss Varnish to get as strong a grip as possible on a translucent figure.
       
      I decided to do the flat slime as a Crystal Ooze. For this I mixed Gallery Glass Charcoal Black, White Pearl, and Pledge Floor Polish in about equal parts. (It's hard to really dole out equal portions with the Gallery Glass sampler pots...) I gave the top a couple of layers - about 15 minutes between coats, since it takes a while for the Gallery Glass to firm up though it's a bit faster with thin layers and the floor polish added in. I decided it was a bit too pearly and not quite dark enough, so added some more Charcoal Black and a bit of water after that for the last three layers. With the top done to my liking, I added a few drops of MSP Black Ink to the remainder and gave the bottom a couple of coats. The result was a bit too shiny, so I gave it a final quick finish of the Anti-Gloss Varnish to dull it just a bit.
       
      The rearing slime is an attempt at an Ochre Jelly. I used the same basic 2:1 Gallery Glass to Floor Polish formula, this time with Harvest Yellow and Cocoa Brown. Again after two layers I felt the color was a bit too "happy" and added some more Cocoa Brown. I did two more layers and then added a few drops of MSP Brown Ink to the mix (not well blended, so I could make adjustments) and did a thin glaze with that. I didn't bother with the final Varnish coat on this one - the Ink glaze provided enough of a dulling effect on its own IMHO.
       
      The pictures don't really do justice to the transparency of the Gallery Glass paint; phone flash really killed the ambient lighting through the figures.

      The fastest minis I ever painted!  15 minutes for two models, start to finish.  Each got a single coat of Tamiya Clear Green/Orange and then glued to a base.  I didn't feel the need to decorate the base for a puddle of acidic goo.
       
      I should probably seal them though.  That hasn't happened yet, and will probably add another five minutes of slopping brush-on sealer onto them.
