Tiny Ravens

A while back I picked up these minis from Joann’s:

I think they’re meant for fairy gardens. I’m not a fairy garden sort of person but I do love how craft stores like Joann’s and Michaels have an assortment of miniatures for them. The scale is all over the place of course, and they’re kind of pricey, so I usually go through them whenever they’re on sale or clearance.

The crows looked like good repaint fodder, and they really needed it. One couldn’t stand on his own either, but that was an easy fix with some sanding.

They’re looking better without the silly yellow eyes now.

In the 1:9 world they’re too big to be crows, so they’re pretending to be ravens instead.

I prefer ravens to crows anyway. šŸ˜‰

  1. I agree with filliefanatic, they look a lot better without the yellow eyes. I’m going to have to look around as Michael’s after halloween to see if I can find anything tiny on clearance.

  2. How detailed do you want to get (or can achieve)? Ravens have diamond-shaped tails compared to crows’ much-straighter-across tail ends. I’d suggest rooks but then you’d have to do even more detailing (they have white around the face).
