A painting & hobby Blog for the less than perfect.
Really like this one. Love the base. It really brings the mini alive. That fish is so cool. How do you get the resin in the box shape? Do you use plasticard as a former? Always wanted to try it
Thank you :) I wish i had done more of a SBS on the resin. next Time I'll take pics for sure. In the meantime I used Meg Maples way of doing it a couple times now and it has worked like a dream!

Great, thanks Zab. That is an awesome site :)I shall give it a go soon. Gotta decide what to paint first :)
Wow Zab, the work you did on the wood grains and cement blocks were simply amazing. Very realistic.
Thanks! Pigments make for great streaking mediums :)
Really nice man, beautiful base.. And who says that's and angler fish? could be some native fantasy fish ;)
Thanks man :)
Zab, you're becoming a master of "still life". These bases (and those that came before) are really impressive.
Thank you :) I may just paint bases from now on o_O Screw the minis!
fantastic Zab. I have just sanded yours back to get it looking good when I put the ice shelf on did you sand yours?
Cool! Yeah i sanded mine, I feel like the polishing tool on the giant squig worked better but it did take off quite a bit of resin and this one was too small and fragile for that so it was good o'l elbow grease the whole way ;)
By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
