While waiting for the restock of the lead pile (a large part of which arrived yesterday, thankfully), I have been working relatively steadily on the game counters that I discussed a few posts ago.
I have become quite familiar with working with the Blue Stuff moulds and Sculpey polymer clay and I have completed about 80 items now. I am not sure that her indoors is overly impressed when I bake them in the oven, but I am pretty impssed with the overall result.
Sculpey is interesting stuff in that it is worked like very soft plasticene, but cures hard and retains the finest sculpted detail without distortion when it heats. I can see the benefit of using this material for more counters and perhaps some other terrain items.
Next on the painting table are more Spanish Napoleonics.
