The "Also Ran" I am very proud of

I have posted this mini before, but I wanted to show the new base I made in class with Michael Proctor at ReaperCon.The base is mostly tree-bark and some tiny weedy bits with some sculpting. Everything was then primed and painted. I am very excited about this development in my progress.

I also have my first commission lined up!

The Little Mermaid -- Update -- WINNER

She showed VERY WELL for being only my 10th mini . . .


This weekend I will be working at Reaper Con -- the convention for pewter miniature enthusiasts. The above mini is my submission for the painting contest. While it is not perfect, it is only my 10th mini to paint and I have come a long way since I started in January.
(By they way, she is supposed to be bare-breasted, but since I am The Church Lady, I painted on a bikini top.)

Beadworks Magazine

Back in June I sent these lovelies to my Bead Soup Swap Partner Heather Pyles.
And this is what she made of them -- gorgeous!

And guess what -- Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Swap has been picked up by Bead Works Magazine. Check out the Bead Buzz page when the June issue hits the stands on May 27th.
