Miniature Painting - Plates 1 by thinkpastel Miniature Painting - Plates 1 by thinkpastel
My titles are always creative, uh? :laughing:
Long story short, I suck at painting :D and since I got tired of painting all of my miniature plates with dots motives (evidence: here, here, here, here..) I imposed myself some practice.

Some of the designs are inspired by my mother's sketchbook and/or by nail art tutorials found here, everything else was painted from scratch.

Of course, everything is handmade and handpainted, in a 1:6 scale. :giggle:
:bulletpink: WIP 1 || WIP 2
:star: Learn to make your own plate holder!

Can you do a tutorial on how you make the plates, I know you mostly use Talty's tutorial, but can you show us how you do it? They look amazing by the way, lots of small details.

Thank you :hug:
I'm not planning on making a tutorial since it would be pretty much a copy of Talty's, and her's already great!
The only difference is, I don't use a washer but a plastic circle guide template (like this one: www.aoeartworld.com/productima… - lift the clay from the template before baking, of course!
Another tip I can give you, use lots of baby powder (on the clay, on the work surface, on your rolling pin and on your hands) to keep the clay clean and dust free ;)
Oh and once the clay is baked and cooled down, sand the edges with fine sandpaper to make them really smooth :giggle:
