Natural materials

Post by Corvus » 1 Sep 2009, o 14:34

I have a small collection of various natural materials for basing purposes: tree twigs, grass seeds, moss, tiny flowers ...

I've been thinking of selling this stuff for a fair price: for example 1 euro for a small bag, fixed shipping cost, just to keep things simple. I'll do this for fun, not profit.

Most people will be able to gather these materials by themselves, but I guess there also a lot of people who want to buy it too. So what do you think?

Some example stuff, for scale I have included a ruler (in centimeters) and a Rosemary & Co Series 33 #1.

I wouldn't buy it, Ana collects all kinds of plants which she can imagine to be useful for miniatures, but maybe others would buy it.
Can't help much, but I can admit they can add totally new quality and dimension to your miniatures.

I collect plants myself too, so I would not buy it either. But if you can manage to get your product in the spotlight for a bit, there will always be people buying it.

I wouldnt get them because I hate organic things on my bases, I prefer artificial things.

Only way I see you selling it if I'm brutally honest is by packaging up stuff you find in the country side and selling it to city dwellers, I've been saving up my old herb cut off's from the Thyme, rosemary and even Mint to use as trees etc.
Getting back into the thick (or rather thin as in thinning my paints) of it, not picked up a brush in some time so this may hurt a bit until I get used to the feel of them again :doh:

Agreed. Or to people who don't want to go out collecting the stuff.

as for me - I also wouldn't pay for such thing because I have no problem with taking a walk to park or wood to find what I need;
but I also believe there are people who'd like to save time and prefer purchasing such stuff
