RPG Painted Mini - Dryad

One of my favorite non-character minis is a Dryad sculpted by Patrick Keith. I had to add a base because she fell over a lot - silly drunken Dryad. Here is the unpainted original, photo from Reaper Minis:

Here is mine, with and without mousepad background (Monet's Water Lilly Pond):


The base was made from a circle my Hubby cut from a plastic sheet he had which was then glued to the mini. I added Crayola Air-Dry Clay and sculpted additional rocks and the waves, using the only sculpting tools I had at the time: a yarn needle and a bobby pin. The paints and varnish are from Reaper and FolkArt.


  1. Wow! You did a great job with the painting. I probably would have poked my own eye out with the bobby pin attempting that one. :)

  2. Thanks :-) As is often the case, I had to use a magnifying lamp to paint the thing. Admittedly, I've gotten my eye a bit too close to the glass more than once: not quite the same as jabbing myself in the eye with the paintbrush, but close enough heheh.
