Nyrissa work in progress

Recommended Posts

I had a fun idea for her base, and this is the proof of concept stage.  I think it works well enough for my notion, so full steam ahead!

The base is a $1 coin under a $.25 coin with a 1" base filled with Liquid Gravity on top, then a plank of corkboard on that.  She's a metal mini and will be pretty high up at the end of it all, so I wanted to take some balancing precautions early in the process.

 

The main skeleton of the leaves is a thin strip of steel I pulled off a car handle years ago.  I used vise grips to twist, bend, and snap it into nice leafy shapes.  Green Stuff was liberally applied to get a nice succulent effect.  I shaped it mostly with normal wood pencils.

Assembled, primed, and tacky glued to the handle.  I'll wait a few days for the glue to completely cure before I do anything else.
