October 23: Do you paint busts?

I have never tried.

Show us if you have.

I have one still in its package. :unsure:  It is the Julie Guthrie dragon bust from Reaper, the resin version. Not much to show. 

 

I am going to get another from the kickstarter because I realized something. I could use it as a figurehead on a scratchbuild ship. Say for instance a rather OTT Viking drakkar -OR- my own scratchbuild version of the Dawn Treader.

I have not to date painted a bust, but I am not adverse to doing so at some point in the future.

Much like everything else I "paint" I have a acquired 1 (or more....can't recall and it/they are packed) busts (something(s) steampunkish from Infamy) but had not even unpacked them from whatever they came in before packing them in a larger box for the move (it was only 2 or 3 years they sat on a shelf....)  I would like to try some once I get back to painting regularly.  I expect I'll snag the ones from the Bones V, as they will be great to learn/practice on the larger scales with.

I painted a bust ONCE (in 2015) and it turned me into a portrait artist! Just say no to busts! (unless you want to be a portrait artist!)

I haven't, although I own a copy of "The Grudge", and the resin dragon bust from RCon 2017. (Coming soon to BONES!)

 

They're on the list.

Nope and don't plan to. I don't do so well on the larger stuff and don't think I'd enjoy it. Seeing as I have sooooo many minis I do want to paint on hand there's not much interest. Maybe someday.

I have a few, by now. I have not painted any of them... yet.

My paternal grandmother liked to make lemon chess pie. By some unknown alchemy she would juice 8 lemons and incorporate that much lemon juice in the pie filling. Her lemon pies were LEMON pies; bite into one and they’d bite you back. Just the way my dad liked them. 

 

None of her granddaughters have succeeded in replicating her pie; that much lemon juice tends to make the filling soupy (I’m told).

 

 

Lemon curd. Bet you about /anything/ she made lemon curd, or something very, VERY like it.

I still have the Reapercon dragon bust in my drawer, I'll need to try it once I have the time and patience to use the necessary techniques for it.

 

Was that offered as a limited production item at RC 2018, like the resin Murkillor this year?

 

I missed the Murkillor because they were gone when I arrived, but then got one when they appeared on the reaper site.  I want to make sure I don’t miss a chance to get something to like this that they might sell next year.

Yes it was, I am fortunate to have had a ninja shopper to yoink it for me that year.

RCon 2018 is where I got mine.

A couple, great fun but they do take a lot of time to do well. And take up a lot of shelf space.
