No Need to be Koi
These puns are getting out of hand…
Anyway, the tenuous link is to this here mini update about the sculpting of a miniature Koi carp for the Preacher base.
Here’s the little fishy:
I’m sorry for the terrible photo. But hopefully you can just about make it out. It measures about 12mm from mouth to tail fin and is the result of one of my first ever sculpting attempts. I’m quite pleased with it and it should paint up well enough after a little bit of smoothing. Particularly as it will be submerged in some slightly murky water.
I used green stuff (two part modelling putty) and worked at it with some clayshapers and sculpting tools, liberally coated in vaseline to prevent snagging and sticking.
As you’d expect for a first attempt there was a fair bit of trial and error. But overall I feel pretty accomplished.
