Hopefully I will be spending less time with health care folk in the future, but I will be prepared in any event.

SO the latest Gang of Mushrooms is based & base coated, ready for some color.For a somewhat different presentation, I took the photos of the Guys in their white on black base coats on the still white on black Twisted Tower photo stage:














The cigarette holder a la FDR was Corsair's inspired idea.
Have a pleasant evening!

Before I got to the end of the post my exact thought was "Is... is that an FDR mushroom?!"

Even only based and base coated they look so charming in the Twisted Towers environment, that you could leave them as they are and say that they are a bunch of Ghost Mushrooms!

When I sculpted that Mushroom, he reminded me of someone...but who? When Corsair suggested the cigarette holder the who? was answered.

I am always tempted to leave the base coated minis as monochrome pieces, but I do LOVE colors.

Thanks for the replies, Guys!

I wonder how difficult it might be to make a pair of simple wire pince-nez...



two loops and two crimps would do the trick I'd imagine...

It might not be that hard. Two loops; glue them in pace & add a green stuff connection/nose piece.
I is something to think about doing.

Thanks, Brett I am happy you like them. I had to look up Herr Thompson, but there is a resemblance there as well.

I hope this comes out -

You captured the sarcasm without ever knowing!

This is black and white, too.

He'd still need some specs, but shades not nose pinchers.
