Pappa Sabatto and Velvet
It has been some time since I painted this little vignette, Pappa Sabatto, The Dark Pope and his High Priestess Velvet Louisa Dominico from the 40mm Disturbia range from Jim Bowen. For more information go to this link
The two miniatures needed some considerable 'cleaning-up' with Pappa Sabatto's robes needing filling with watered-down Milliput to get rid of some pitting.
Both figures were painted with Acrylic paints over a black basecoat and mounted onto this impressive wooden base which was picked up at the IPMS Show at Telford. The base is a little work of art - being smooth on three sides and rough, almost rotten wood on the forth or front. I built up the groundwork with Milliput and sprinkled rough sand over uPVA glue to add texture. The green shrubs were modelled from ground-up foam and the yellow flowers are painted on.
The headstone was a piece of 6mm plastic card, cut and sanded to shape and the resin bowls were from my spares box.
I am particularly pleased with the red robes and the skull motif.
