Hey Jungle Painters,
long time no tutorial from your massive jungle, right?
Well, this one comes from the past and in it we will have a close look on Sanne's 4th miniature project, named Tilda, done in autumn 2014. We hope you enjoy the project log.
For the base Sanne used a round plinth and did cut some plastic card in the same size.
On the next step she used some scribing tools we recieved from Uschi van der Rosten's tool storage. They are mainly used in plane modelling but we transfered them just to miniatures.
Check them out here - down below on the shop page.
With those tools you can carefully carve patterns in plastic card.
... and magicly Sanne's groundwork for Tilda's bedroom was ready.
... but not the interiour yet. Sanne used some BeesPutty to sculpt a carpet for the floor.
She scratchbuild a bed, and sculpted a costume for the guy still sleeping in the bed after a hard night of party.
The feet and the blanket have been sculpted in Magic Sculpt. There is no need to bake it in the oven as you have to do with BeesPutty. Sanne wanted to start soon with painting. The part have not been glued to the base yet. This is just a composition check.
Sanne used some acrylic glass round rods and sandpaper to create small bottles.
Sanne wanted to give the decals by Uschi van der Rosten another try and went for some wood textur on the brown airbrushed base (acrylic colours).
She cut the shape of the base but with a little play, like some millimeters more on the edges. Here you can have a look on Uschi's visit to MV studio to explain how his decals work.
Making many small dots fora good connection from decal to groundwork.
Now it was time to apply the decal. Prepare a dry brush with a broad tip to "massage" the decal on its surface. Take your time and you will have a clean result.
Now it is time to cut away the edges or massage them to the plinth.
Meanwhile Tilda herself was recieving her basing colours for further painting work.
Painting went on and bottles were placed. Sanne even sculpted a condom and a ripped open condom packing. There is a story in this project, can you read it? A emptied wine bottle was also placed.
For the beer bottles Sanne went crazy and copied a real beer label to the miniature bottles by justing painting it on thin cigarette rolling paper. After she painted them she used matt varnish to "glue" them to the green painted bottles.
Well, we do not have anymore photos for Sanne's project log here. We hope you enjoyed it and are inspired by these explained steps. The finished project of Tilda looks like this:
Keep on happy painting!
