Mouslings for Christmas!

Recommended Posts

I decided to paint a few mouslings as Christmas presents for people.  For the most part I think they turned out decent.  The Santa was a little rushed so he's a little less detailed than I would have liked.  And yes, I did get the basing idea for Asiago Jones from a diorama at Reaper Con.

 

It was also my first time playing around with basing.  I'm having a hard time with putting on a second layer of basing materials, like the snow over the grass on the Santa.  Maybe I didn't wait long enough between layers but trying to spread glue on the grass ended up just pulling up a bunch of the grass.  So suggestions and thoughts are welcome.

It took me a min to get the Jones one but then I really laughed  - love it :D


RE: basing yes - make sure you let them cure fully. It can depend how you do it, but generally I use a layer of PVA/water 50/50 for my first layer. And you really have to let that fully dry and harden before you can do anything else. If you do, it ain't comin off any time soon! but if you don't yeah you'll pull up your basing materials sadly. You can also, use super glue, or straight PVA on your basing materials. Again let it dry fully, and to give them that little extra sticky, hit them with a spray bottle of mixed PVA/Water (again about 50/50). This can help glue down the next layer (just do with succeeding layers), letting them fully dry between layers. It also is nice as it makes a very sturdy little base, those materials aren't coming off easily. 

 

A quick trick I learned from model railroading peeps is to add a lil drop of flow aid into your pva/Glue mix. Especially if you're not using the spray bottle (maybe because it'd blow away most of the flock with the air). It works really well if you're using either a dropper type thing or an old brush to let the mixture wick into the materials. The flow aid reduces the surface tension and helps your glue wick more up into the materials.

      Hello everyone, here is 01526, Madame Gorgonzola sculpted by Gene Van Horne. This tiny model was the 2013 ReaperCon Convention Miniature.

      Aftermath is a dungeon crawler board game that is the heir to both Mice and Mystics and Stuffed Fables.
      The game takes place in a post apocalyptic world where rodents have formed colonies to scrounge resources for survival, cobbling together the things they need.
      For the set, I went with a lot of textures and a lot of wear and tear. Nothing these mice have is brand new, and I really wanted to express that.

      These were the final two of the Thanksgiving Challenge I was able to complete. 

      The one on the left is a fairly accurate depiction of the Elder Mouse that wound up briefly possessing me on Halloween and his friend is the Priestess of Cheezit. (Which has gone from a favored food of mice, to a religion it seems)

      Debating on the nature of Cheezits vs Cheese Nips, consulting the Book of Ralph.

      Nips are found to be acceptable, and they go off to spread this to the other mice...

      Hi folks! I hope everyone had a Happy Easter! Painted this Mousling on last night's Twitch livestream :) Worked on some freehand lace patterns and put a normal-sized penny (I swear!) next to this little guy for scale. He was so much fun to paint
