Embellie Gellie: for Hobby Miniatures, too!


 Evenin All

  It's Glen here with a new use for ScraPerfect's Embellie Gellie! This one is for the hobbyists as it involves painting figures. My brother and I are gamers from way back, we played Dungeons and Dragons and other Role Playing Games like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc. I was also an avid military modeler and painted figures for dioramas. That's the back story, this past Xmas my brother bought me a new board game based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, one of my favorites. This game involves plastic figures and horrible monsters that cry out to be painted.

   But it's hard to paint figures these days not only because I haven't done it in years but also because my big fingers are in the way. I was getting frustrated when I thought of a great idea! I took some of the awesome Embellie Gellie and built it up on the end of a skewer stick until it held the figure from underneath and allowed me to steady my brush hand and still hold the stick!


 So as you can see this was a real breakthrough for me and made the painting process much more fluid and enjoyable!




 I'm still working on the details but it's working out very well! Thanks for stopping by today and remember to check out the other great posts on the ScraPerfect Blog and check out the great products offered by ScraPerfect
