This stuff hardens pretty fast so I have to be quick. Especially when the animals have legs, like spiders. After they have hardened on the stone or whatever material used, I take them away and paint them with whatever color I have at hand. If it’s watercolor, it looks kinda crappy in the beginning, because watercolor dries very dull.
This is how they look when they are varnished.
The blue and blue/green lizards turned out nicely.
My wife got a pot with an artificial plant just for fun, so me, also just for fun, I made it a bit nicer. Of course most people thought it got scarier 😉 For miy part, I realy love the way the caterpillar looks in the real.
