So first off, Cyd asked me if I fancied doing a swap. Well of course I said yes because who wouldn't want some fabulously retro miniatures made by Cyd's fair hands. So, that has pretty much had my attention for a while. If you've never done a swap with anyone then I would suggest you try it. It's a fantastic way to practice your skills, maybe make something from a different era and you get a bespoke collection of miniatures from someone you admire. Stay tuned for the big reveal =0)
The second reason for my absence - I just had to try a tutorial that Sarah kindly posted on her blog.
It started well -
and ended badly -
You've got to laugh! I'll admit I cursed...well a lot. I didn't glue the upright rods into place, thinking I could do it at the end. Nope!
But with a little dogged determination, I think I got there in the end.
Have a wonderful weekend
