I’m heading to MFCA in Philadelphia next weekend and planning to show a few of the dwarves from ToadChapel. Here’s a display base I’m hoping to finish in time for the show.
Basic structure created with a mix of Super Sculpey & Super Sculpey Firm. I find the proper consistency is just about midway between the two. The standard consistency warms in your hands and won’t stand serious mushing around, while the firm is so stiff it tends to break when you handle it. Working it up into a usable consistency is enough to make your hands sore.
A little structure added with Milliput. Without distracting from the figures, I’m trying to suggest that something interesting lies just ahead.
Some basic paint applied. I’m repainting the base of the dwarf who’s in the road so she matches better, rather than trying to match the painting to her base.
This is a bit of a rush job, so hopefully some well-placed flock will cover up some of the rough patches.
Happy hobbies to you!
