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.

Fine work!

I must have given away close to twenty Santa Mouselings as Christmas gifts by now.

      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

      When I got my Secret Sophie assignment and  saw that I got @Corporea to paint for, I knew almost instantly what I wanted to paint for her. She put that she likes anything adorable and cute plus I know she likes mouslings so I knew I had to paint one for her. As I was going through my stash I found that had the Santa one and knew it was perfect. I also knew I wanted to pair it with a Christmas tree but it took me a while to settle on how I wanted to do the tree. Mainly I was flipping back and forth between making or buying one. I ended up making one out of greenstuff and am really happy with how it turned out.

      Some of you may have seen this one on Facebook as it was my entry in the last Reaper Bones quarterly contest. I love painting Mouslings and really wanted to enter the contest this time but at first wasn't sure how I could make my version stand out especially as you only enter one photo. Eventually, I decided not worry about it and try something I have wanted to attempt for awhile, a night time scene with OSL. I wanted a really light colored glow and really wanted to go with white but could not figure out how to do it without leaving the bee painted only white. So I ended up doing some light glazes of yellow and loved how it turned out. Its not perfect but I think it is a good start for my first attempt for this type of OSL.

      I gave Mom the Mousling King for a first figure. Mom has good painting posture and steady hands right off the bat! She also was swiftly good at gauging paint consistency and quantity on the brush. Yay for a first figure!
