for xmas hubby asked me to make some tiny potion bottles to use for props and scenery for his 28mm wargaming.
they looked , well unimpressive
so i made some crates
the crates are made from thin balsa wood which was cut into planks and glued together. i then scraped a wire brush across each side to give it a rough and weathered grain. they are painted brown, with a wash of black ink to get into all the detail and then dry brushed with an orangey, beige to highlight.
i unravelled and cut up a bit of parcel string to make the 'straw'
the bottles are made from glass and plastic beads which i glued together with wire for a bit of strength.
perfect to add to a ruined wizard's tower or market place
