Craft Paint Challenge

Recommended Posts

Shading the dinosaurs with purple.  Yeah, I know you had enough of purple dinosaurs in the 90's and I'm probably off my rocker, but I'm going somewhere with this.

My inspiration,  from Antimatter Games:

Obviously I need to do a lot more layers. 

 

I finished this little 3d printed sarcophagus:

The last of the Bones raptors plus a pair from Wiz-Kids round out the pack.

The others were based with a rough mixture of green and black, and I lined their mouths. This trio will follow.

I ended up meandering along with more scenery on Friday.  This ruined tower is a recycled tire piece from Wartorn Worlds, who are now out of business.  It originally came in a factory tan paint scheme, but I didn’t have anything to match, so it didn’t get used.  When I ran across it in the great scenery organization last week, I decided to see if it would take paint.

The answer was, yes, it would.  If you look above at my paint collection, it’s a simple three layer job of the gray triad, with a bit of very dilute burnt umber sloshed around to take the bright edge off the “Granite Gray”.  I added a few tufts and a bit of flocking, and now it blends with the rest of my table top scenery.  Now for a scenario to exploit it...

@Rob Dean that came out well, the flock is a nice touch. 

 

Bringing the new raptors up to speed. A couple of the others had a soak in the hot springs to help loosen stiff legs so they can stand up better.

Garr the war dog got a base coat, and I got out the wight, not sure what to do with it yet.  I forget what the 3d printed cat creatures are called, but they got a little more paint, too.

Raptor pack gets a layer of brick red:

And you can see the crappy 1/4" brush from hobby lobby I have been abusing throughout this project.

Washed with black paint, and they look like crap, but wait...

Final shot of the door:

IMG_20200509_122417009_HDR.jpg.a6fb4eee6e7bf98a4b76ae4f8d5734b6.jpg

 

Highlighted the brick with some flesh tone, drybrushed a little green on the base a few other highlights on the tree.  

 

Done with the dinos.  After the black wash I did some more highlights with rust, white, and spice tan, painted eyes, and went over the mouths, teeth, and claws.  Here they are shown with all paints and tools used:

I spotted one unopened bottle of craft paint today. 

 

I also located about 9 random house paint Sample colors from Home Depot. Those are even less expensive than Apple Barrel, Delta Ceramcoat, etal. But maybe they don't count?

I would definitely count them for this challenge.

I hope to get back to this soon; what painting I did last weekend was with hobby paints.

Yep.  All of the pieces are from WizKids.  I was organizing my pieces and pulled them out to use craft paints on them.

Um... I don't know how else to say this other than bluntly...

I only own craft paints...  I've only ever used them.

When I buy more expensive "proper" paints (vallejo, citadel, etc) for mini-painting, I just get disappointed.

Sooo.... Can I even enter in this contest?  I feel like I'd be "cheating"...

 

I do use specialties though - like effects (such as citadel's "blood for the blood god" - which always looks like wet blood) - but other than weird effects, yeah... It's all craft paints for me.

 

If you intend to buy craft paints, I'd suggest Americana, it's the best company for it - it usually stays a good water/pigment ratio, and doesn't turn to cement after a few months.  I also like that they are (almost always) non-watery, so I don't have to make a million coats.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....
      Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
