WIP - House Escher is in the... um... house...

These ladies are ready to pop your corks...
The lighting's terrible, but you get the idea. Those nice, young ladies from down under (the hive, that is) are my current WIP. The plan is to get them ready for Adepticon in April, and I'm hoping to have them done in the next week or so.

I'm working from Stahly's recipe over at the Tale of Painters blog. Unfortunately, I don't believe mine will be anywhere near as good as his, but what are you gonna do? I made the mistake of priming the models white, so I've spent a lot of time painting black  - it would have been considerably easier to prime black and paint white where needed. I'll have to keep that in mind for next time.

As you can see, I've also mounted the models on corks, in order to paint them easier (I've got a secret plan for their bases,) but it isn't working out so well. The pins I mounted in their feet aren't long enough, so the models don't secure well to the cork. Again, lesson learned.

Hopefully I'll be back in about a week with an update on them!
