This model has been one of my favourites for a long time, can't believe this is the first time I've painted it.

I tried to paint some otherwordly inner blue glow to the shamanny magic bone stick, but it did not turn out so good. This was a joy to paint, very nice clean casting.

I think the blue glow came out nicely. Looks properly glowy to me. And the bone ends look appropriately porous. I think you did a great job with the textures and colors.

 

Another lovely piece, AW. :thumbs

I've always liked this model. You've done a really nice job. The base is impressive. Is that some real stone/rock on there? :search

 

The glowy looks quite nice to me; I know I couldn't pull off such a look. :thumbs

Thanks, guys! The glow is ok, I guess, not what I envisioned but the best I could do anyway - no remorse!

 

The rock is made from Milliput standard. I found out (somewhere in internet) that it breaks nicely in layers after it has cured, leaving a really convincing slatelike edge. I press the stuff flat, 2 - 3mm thick and then press some inendentions to the surface with a real rock. After it's cured you can break it to pieces easy with fingers or pliers. It's better than real rock for bases because it's so easy to work: filing, drilling and breaking bitz off.

I tested Milliput for sculpting, but could not get the hang of it, just horrible yellow goo all over the place. It's good for filling small pores and holes tho, specially in metal or resin models, as you can dillute it with water until you can paint it on with a brush and sandpaper over it when it has cured.

Sounds like the standard gray which is pretty poor for sculpting, but as you noted, good enough for filling. The superfine white (also comes in black I discovered recently) is far more manageable for sculpting and less sticky than GS (for those times when sticky is bad). I'm rather fond of it. I have sculpted rocks with milliput before but I never thought of breaking it to get authentic looking edges. Thanks for that one, AW, another tool in the meks toolbox.
