As you saw in the picture from two weeks ago, I’ve been working on something not related to miniatures and, as you might suspect, is related to the post I did for Christmas:
I already told you on that post that my sister was going to ask me a pendant for herself, and it was nothing but a pendant of a panther lying on a green calcite stone. Task was easy enough, however I needed to create an armature to hold together both the panther and the stone. I just used some green wire I had lying arround at home:
With that structure set, and using once more the Fimo clay I used on the Toothless pendant, I modelled the panther in a relaxed pose on the stone. My sister asked for the panther to be cartoon like, not too much realistic:
The panther was ready to be put in the oven for the Fimo clay to harden. I was nervious however, as I had been reading articles about those kind of stones, and that they tend to burn easily, but luckily they all mentioned calcites being exposed to a bare flame, not just envirointmental heat.
After 15 tense mininutes in the oven (more like 25, this piece was the last thing my old oven heated before being changed) I pulled the panther out and I was relieved to see the stone unscathed. So, once it cooled down, I had painting to do:
I had just to finish the hook and the panther was ready to be worn over.
This post was really a short one, but I hope you all liked it. Next week I’ll show you a new conversion I’m doing for my Aleph army (figures as much). I will only give you a tip regarding the base miniature: Aleph’s new Garuda model! Don’t miss it!
‘Till next time!
