View Full Version : First ever minis
01-16-2005, 10:51 AM
I just started painting some minis because I bought a pack of 2.1/4 x 3.1/2 inch frames in a cheap shop the other day.
They are all done in acrylics on watercolour board.
Any comments or crits would be welcome.

Very nice. I really like the one with falling snow.
What's a "cheap shop"?

Aren't they fun!
I can tell by your work that you will easily get hooked! *grin*
Welcome to the world of miniatures.

These are all Excellent. I love them all. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
The snow is very effective, and the sunset really glows -- there is something in each one that says to me, "Frame me, and put me in your home" :) :)
Hope to see more from you.

These are very nice - each one worth framing. What do they look like in their frames?

Wonderful style. I'd like to see them in their frames too. :D

Thank you everyone - I'm thrilled with the way these turned out.
I will take some pics of them framed - but I am not sure how the digicam will deal with the glass in the frames.
Lady Rando - we have shops here in the UK that started off selling everything for £1, but these days they don't stick to the £1 so tightly and they sell sell pretty much everything from toothpaste to rugs at very cheap prices. It's pot luck what you get in the shops as they change stock regularly. I got the frames for £1.49 for four.

Hi Cryla...those are called Dollar stores here...lol
I like your style, really like the sunset. Can't wait to see them framed. I'm going tomorrow to search for frames for some of mine.

Oh yes please show us them framed. Leave the glass out when you do it and they will look great!
