here is the 10th labour: BASING
the material to have a neutral base for many countries and periods
the mixed result for other syles of countries
don't forget that darker is the color of your mix and lesser the figures will be visible or more you will have to highlight the bases, do a try on a spare base before;
"super glue" the figures on their base( ready made or self made it's up to you)
paint the base in a darker color than the finish you will put on it
put the mixed pumice on the bases ( the real color mix is less reddish than on the pics)
highlight the bases with a lighter color
just to see how it can change with a small work the base
the tip of the day: if you want to slow down the drying process of the mixed basing material :
Put the pot of mixed pumice in a plastic bag well closed and open it only when needed.
next post you will have the 11th labour, to be continued....................
