My Workspace - Making Toads...

I was up late yesterday making lots of little Cane Toads in 1:12 scale for Pixie Dust Miniatures because I've had so many requests for them from 'Harry Potter' collecters. So I thought I'd snap a few pictures of them during the process. They look kind of fun without their colour. I use a very translucent clay for these toads so that they have that thin skin slimy look that real Cane toads have.

They take hours to make, but I love making them! I've been commissioned to make some in 1:24 scale, so I'll share these with you before I sell them. :)

Horrible photos, I know! I hate taking photos under artificial light...
