Miniature Painting - Plates 2 by thinkpastel Miniature Painting - Plates 2 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!

hi, i was wondering, the link about the plate tutorial that youve shared, did you do the same procedures with your plates? like putting ah clay under it? or you just plainly put the bigger circle of clay on the top of the washer or watever you are using for the the hallow? :) thank you.

No, I actually didn't put the little clay circle underneath, and I'm not using washers (couldn't find them big enough for a 1:6 scale), I'm using this tool instead: [link]
I don't know its english name, but I can tell you it's used mainly for graphic design and it's sold in stationery stores (even *I* sell them! :D). Of course you have to remove the clay plate before baking as this tool is made of plastic and it would melt :D

OMG! Those plates look so real! really if I didn't know that those plates are miniatures I would say that they are life size.
Great work as always :)

I made the plates using *Talty's tutorial; to remove any imperfection, I sand the edges of each plate (after it's baked of course) with fine sandpaper :giggle:

It always takes me a while to make plates (I'd say 10-15 minutes each - just to "shape" them) and... I use loads of baby powder to avoid hairs (tiny bastards! :shakefist: ) sticking to the clay :D

anytime :D
Although it takes some time, but i think it definately worth the effort to produce such a great result! :w00t:
It's a great idea to use baby powder:clap: thanks for the tip Stella!

How hard is it to make the plate, without painting? I have always wanted to make some for my charms.

I wouldn't say it's hard, really, but it does take a little practice and a lot of patience to make them "neat" (perfectly rounded, hairs and dust-less, smooth..) - I use a lot of baby powder :D
*Talty made a great plates-tutorial, I recommend you to check it out :giggle:
