Here's a pair of scorpions I painted this morning before going to work. These are dime store insect toys. They'll be used for a HotT army I'm building. Of note are the bases. I lathered on a water-based acrylic texture from Acrylicos Vallejo formulated with permanent pigments, microparticles and acrylic resin. Here's the product line . I still have to shade the bases as well as flock them. Nice product, I might get the sand version too.
