This is another one of my long term residents of my shelf of shame. Stripped, re-primed and re-painted after an unsuccessful first attempt.
I tried for a somewhat mayan color scheme by googling pictures of mayan art and choosing the paint closest in colour that I had.
Fun fact 1: The mayas produced a special blue-green pigment which they used in their paintings. This pigment is very resistent to weathering. It's known as maya blue.
Fun fact 2: Mayas used the same word for green and blue, meaning different greens and blues were seen as shades of ONE colour, not as belonging to two different categories, like for example in the English language.
I had a lot of fun with the water effects. But next time I have to cut back on the sea foam, it definitely looks better when applied sparingly.
Enjoy, c&c welcome, as always!
I picked up this little snail at a convention booth last year or so and had a lot of fun painting her. She is seen here peeking through the weeds. :-)
The original mini was just the snail on kind of a rock thing (now embedded in the base).
Update: had a chance to get some pictures of the shell as requested. :-)
