Very nice use of the material.  I hope mine looks half as good.

I printed this one on my fdm printer. I might need a do-over now!

Do you think it'd be possible to install a tea light or something into the base that would make the portal and gems glow while the painted areas would be obscured still?

Great print and a great prop. What settings and printer did you use?

Thank you.  Printed on the Elegoo Mars with Elegoo regular clear resin mixed with Elegoo ABS-like clear red (in the area of 50/50 but I don't measure).  0.04mm with 9 seconds exposure.  8 bottom layers at 60 or 65 seconds exposure.  Haven't used any antialiasing, but I will be trying it soon as there are some layer marks left on this and more so on the larger pieces I've done so I'll be trying to get rid of those.

I actually tried and the paint is not opaque enough so it shines through the paint a little.  It is hollowed out so I could get an LED right under the crystal clusters which add a cute effect, but the bleed through the rest of the paint bothers me.  I'll try to snap a picture tonight.  Masking the swirl/crystals and using a heavier rattle can primer might work better in these cases.  I've put a lot of coats of paint on my necron objectives and the light still shines through some of the paint.

      Here is another 3D printed mini.
      She's from Artisan Guild from the Death Tide Jurakin Set.
      This is the pin up - Telxia Tidal Beauty.
       
      She's a mermaid so she's partially nude hence the links.

      Finished up another 3d printed bust.  I have really been enjoying the different scale and different subject matter (I don't think I've ever painted an orc before). 
       
      Not 100% happy with the hair, but the strands are not as thin as I would have liked.  Picture is a little washed out but I have having issues of not enough light or too much.  And yes his left eye is milky on purpose and the whole reason I painted this piece. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking. 
       
      EDIT: and of course, now looking at the picture on my computer screen I can see that the wound on his face goes through his bottom lip too, and I missed it..    At well...

      Found the 3d model while browsing Pinterest and reached out to the designer and they sent me the file so I could have it printed
