Brain in a Jar - Bones 3

Recommended Posts

So decided to do a quick experiment.  I really wanted there to be actual fluid in my brain in a jar. So I decided to test out  Vallejo Still water mixed with transparent blue paint.

What I didn't think about was the fact that its air tight in there...so the Still water will never cure....Sooo....oops

It could cure I don't know but it might takes days....months...or even years...I also used as little paint as possible and it ended up a bit less translucent that I would have liked but that's ok.

hmmmm that would be tight....not much room between where the brain is attached to the lid and the rim of the lid is attached to the clear plastic cylinder....hmmm

plus the strees from drilling might pop the top off....AHHH why didn't I think of drilling holes before assembly!

How about at the bottom? Turn the figure over & let it air out that way. When it cures, just fill the hole up with some green stuff.

 

Nice idea thou, when I get the BiaJ I will do something similar.

Not sure if letting it cure will improved it. 
The liquid inside made it much more cool..:;,;:

Well if I did that it would cure at the top of the jar and thus defy gravity when I stand it up normally because there is a small amount at the top that's not covered.

Ah ok. I thought it was filled completely.

Well that's what you get when experimenting....sometimes you forget things or don't think of them until its too late. 

I don't think it looks terrible.  I do sort of wish the fluid wasn't so murky   Maybe next time Ill just dip a brush in the paint and mix it in...

      Greetings!
       
      I recently bought some Greenstuffworld colourshift paints & eagerly wanting to try them out, I searched through my (huge) Bones backlog for a suitably metallic mini. I grabbed the fantastically ominious Iron Golem from the Bones 4 Stoneskull Expansion & got to work.
       
      The blue areas are the colourshift paint, all the other areas are standard paints.
       
      I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's not as easy to see the effect on these pics as it is with your own eyes but you can make it out. There's no shading or highlighting on these areas apart from some silver to pick out the rivets & sharp edges on the arm plates.
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Thief : Blue Ink base + black ink to show details  (least happy) 
      Cleric : angelic ghost or spiritual weapon spell.  Yellow ink + TMM 
      Ranger: painted by minispawn.  ill take it. Makes a great ghost 
      Wizard: nulin Oil + higlights of green ink  (fav) 
      Fighter: I only painted the base. (represents an invisible PC pretty well.) 
       
      I should talk to @Doug Sundseth about this again, since he is teaching a class on it, probably today.  Not sure im happy with the set.

      Per Izzy,
      If you picked up either of the Art Books in the Bones III and IV kick-starters and would like to get them autographed, be sure to bring them with you to ReaperCon. Izzy will be signing them when time allows.
