WIP Wednesday: Display Sockets
Well since they are more for display than for gaming, I figured I should build up some nice display sockets for them to sit on!
Here are 2 that I am working on at the moment.
The first is in relation to the Alice in Wonderland model that I won from Masterminis.net. I am going for a steampunk theme ( due to the model ) but not fully. So thinking brick roads are a good start there.
But due to the nature of Alice, I also want some weird element to it, so I am having the bricks begin to float around and off the path a bit..
Not sure how it will work in the end, but I am liking the direction so far. Worst case I will redo sections of it ( or the whole thing ) but the idea is what I am looking for, and it at least a test to see if it could work. And it seems like it can :)
The second socket that I am working on is for Belial. This is a larger one, and one that I also tried new things on. Some did not work as you can see.
I tried a new product called Crackle Medium. I think I did not use it properly, or didn't wait long enough or something. But in the end it did not so much crackle as it did pock mark the surface. Am of 2 minds of if it is a bad thing or not.
The coloring is just black primer with a grey primer over spray on top. No real colors yet, so I can still mess around with it like more Crackle to get the real effect, or more dirt/sand in spots if required.
So there you go for a WIP Wednesday post. I am bringing this kind of back due to someone asking me where it had went! So I will en devour to keep it up a bit more.. or at least try :)
Cheers and more reviews and guest posts forthcoming.
