What a strange morning this was. Yesterday in the evening I still thought about the base and decided to do some sort of dry soil, maybe a riverbed. As I ordered Distress Crackle Paint some weeks ago, I finally wanted to try it. As I never worked with it before, I had to try different sorts of drying, applying and thinning. That took me about 3 hours this morning, so I didn't paint anything on the miniature itself. However, I managed to create a base that seems ok for me. I will add some dry wood and the soldiers gun and that is it. Very simple but not just sand....
Here is the wip, I forgot to take a picture of the Distress Crackle Paint that was put on the base after the Vallejo Sanding Paste had dried. Sorry for that...
|I carefully chose the front side of the base.|
|I use this quite often, a great product from Vallejo.|
|Using a toothpick saves your brush from dying an uncomfortable death.|
|This takes about 15 minutes to dry. Coffee time...|
|After the sanding paste was dry, I put a thin layer of crackle paint on top |
and threw the base into the oven at 50 for 3 minutes.
|The result, I am satisfied with this.|
|The rough paintjob is done, now I have to go into detail.|
