You really outdid yourself this time, it's a fantastic job on a gorgeous mini :wub:


thanks @Kuroneko!  I really loved how this came out. everything seems to have come out well, right down to the blue chunk of Lapis.  In my mind Mama had found the stone and loved it so she used It as a marker to use for her nest.  my only disappointment was that the clear resin wicked up a lot more than I really wanted to.  its hard to see if you aren't right on top of it but the inverted meniscus on the resin edges is much higher than I liked.  I also had to go back and repaint a lot of the rocks because the resin migrated up the rocks giving them a wet look I wasn't happy with. 


But that was a minor gripe, the piece is stunning and it just feels real to me!

Love it! I love how every part of the scene tells some part of the story. And I absolutely love the paint job! And I'm so glad you left the little dragon in the picture. He really adds to the unfolding scene. So very well done! 


It really does tell a great story.  even the little pseudo-dragon adds to the scene and, even though he was a last minute addition, I think him and his little cave make a great addition to the scene.  In my mind, he was basically Mama dragon's baby cam, someone to watch the nest while she went out hunting.  the scene was that she had gotten up early to hunt and prepare for the imminent hatching of her children.  While she was hunting, she heard the shrill scream of the little guy warning her that her eggs were in jeopardy! She raced back to the nest to discover that the little guy had been chased back to his cave and the thieves were removing the first egg and now she is deciding how to deal with the horrible kidnappers!

Beautiful diorama. The red and blue are very bright, it's amazing. I also like the water effect on the stones.

I read the WIP but I haven't found, which resin brand did you use for the water?


Thank you!  I definitely love how vibrant everything is too!


It's called 'Magic Water'   Its a two part epoxy with a 24 hour cure time. It takes dye really well and it can be de-bubbled with CO2.  Apparently it weakens the surface tension causing the bubbles to rise and pop by blowing across the surface once or twice for the first hour or so


I haven't used it yet this way but it's got a long mid stage which is supposed to allow you to set thing in the resin so they look like they are floating
