A quick project for the gaming table: desert rocks with crystal formations.
I glued pieces of gardening cedar bark to small masonite bases with the glue gun. With the same hot glue, I placed plastic “gems” bought at the dollar store. For painting, it was easy: a basecoat of rusty brown, dry brush of ochre on the sand and dry brush of sand beige on the rocks and sand for the highlights. I also built an altar from a larger piece of bark, to which I added some of my homemade resin skulls.

A sacrificial altar stone slab (with some of my homemade skulls!)
Easy, and a cool addition to my terrain pieces.
Here is the result of the molding and casting of my tiny skulls.
The Army of the Dead!
I was playing with tiny bits of Magic Sculpt and came up with these:
Yep. 28mm scale human skulls. It’s tiny. Each one took me about 10 – 15 minutes to make. They were sculpted with a needle tip and a precision screwdriver. They are mounted on finishing nails for handling.
I plan to make a mold and cast dozens of them in resin, so I’ll have my own little skulls for decorating miniature bases.
I’ll keep you all posted with the progress of that micro-project.
