Long time ago we had an active member of our forum, whose name was Micha (better known as Jaycan). Back then he made a cool set of Autumn-themes bases for his miniatures, and (what’s even better) described the whole process. So here goes his description:
Hello!I have made some bases in Autum style. I used the following materials:
I created some stones from FIMO and used 3 different kinds of sand:
Then I painted the whole thing in black first.
Then I drybrushed the sand with various browns and painted the stones with various red-browns, and finished with Bleached Bone and some metallic medium to get the effect of quartz crystals.
The next step was the static grass…
… which was later varnished and painted after drying and drybrushed with a mixture of different greens and Bleached Bone and yellow
The next step was to add some leaves – painted with different brown, red and yellow colors
The last step was to put on some wood, because if there are leaves – there must also be wood.
the finished base looks like this:
And here are some pics of six such bases:
I hope it’s helpful 🙂
