Clear nail-polish for slime effect?
Posted 18 May 2012 - 12:57 PM
A while ago I sculpted a blob monster out of some... honestly really bad clay. It was some kind of volcanic ash mixture that was very crumbly, and felt like thick, mashed up papier mache, but it ended up working decently well for minis when you didn't have to put too much detail into it. I have since painted it green, and I was thinking about looking into some kind of clear gloss coat to make the monster look slimy, but before I even got around to searching for it, I realized I had nail-polish.
Would that work if I carefully painted it onto my mini? Or would it probably crack and possibly ruin my mini, meaning I'd need to make a whole new blob guy from scratch? I'm assuming I wouldn't use a normal paint brush for the task, but I'm really just curious if I can, since this is the only mini I have that needs a slimy look at the moment. Or should I just quit being cheap and go buy some gloss? =p
Thank you, any and all, for the advice you can provide!

I never thought I'd write this...but I agree with MonkeySloth on this one. ~ Adrift
