Happy Halloween!

Spooky Minis

This weekend I’ve been making miniatures. With Halloween right around the corner, I wanted to make something Halloween-ish, and ended up with Sally’s potion jars and a couple of old books. (plus a bonus stool!)

The jars come from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, in case you were wondering!

These started out as beads, buttons and tiny pieces of wood. The “Worm’s Wort” bottle isn’t movie accurate, but I really like the shape so it doesn’t bother me too much.

Caught the rare moment when sunlight hits the desk!!

I gave them all coats of black paint, then dry brushed them with silver. The Deadly Nightshade jar got a wire fastening added to it, and while it’s a little bulky and was super fiddly to make, I’m happy I decided to make it. (I can’t say I want to do that again though, haha) The labels I found online and resized in Photoshop.

The books were made from paper and scraps of leather I’ve held on to forever.

I tried to age them by sanding, scuffing and blotching on watered down paint.

It’s been such a nice change of pace to work on minis again… I’ve missed it.

Lucien

Lucien, Breyer’s fall 2019 Collector Club horse, arrived this week.

I’ve been keeping an eye out for this one ever since he was revealed at BreyerFest this year. I’m also glad he’s available to all CC members instead of a limited SR you’d have to be drawn for.

Another pinto? Yes please, I’m totally ok with that. ๐Ÿ˜

As far as I know, he is still available on Breyer’s website, but who knows for how long. You do have to be a member of the Collector Club to purchase him though.
