I’m trying to standardise and unify my method of painting “lit” objects and to that end I need a number of identical or similar castings of sculpted fire. I mean to experiment with different ways of painting fire and compare them to each other.
I know Crom’s Anvil has fire bowls, but I’ve been able to sculpt and cast something similar myself (a cone shape with a flame-textured surface) and I’m now hoping to find something where the flames are a bit more “articulated”, for lack of a better word.
Does anyone know of any suitable sculpts of fire on the market, that can be bought in numerous duplicates for relatively cheap?19/03/2019 at 10:50 #111073MikeKeymaster19/03/2019 at 10:53 #111074
Ah, you’ve exposed my weakness. I’m still uninitiated to the sacred mysteries of Shapeways19/03/2019 at 13:13 #111079
Armorcast and Anvil Industry does muzzle flashes, also search ebay.
Might also want to search shops with dungeon tiles they might have detail kits.
I don’t think this fit the cheap category.

You might also buy this and paint light effect on it.

Ooh, I really like those Zealot Miniatures braziers. They’re precisely the style of sculpted fire I’m after. But cheap they ain’t. Now I’m just looking at them wondering if the sculptor used some special technique that’s simpler than it looks (probably not, but I’m foolhardy when it comes to sculpting).21/03/2019 at 11:38 #111155fairoaks024Participant
What about the reaper bones fire elementals, balls of fire etc.
they are cheap and very well sculpted. ( also transparent if you want to play with lighting them with LEDs)21/03/2019 at 12:07 #111156

The Wall of Fire and the Burning Sphere could suit my purposes well, and are cheap as you say. Thanks.
As I’m on my way to spending the better part of a week away from home, I brought some putty and modelling tools with me to try sculpting “articulated” flames of my own. This is probably redundant now but I’m still going to try. My idea is to first sculpt some flat, 2D-ish “licks” of flame, but then curl, ripple and gently crimp these a bit before they cure. Then, once they’ve cured, to cut them up and rearrange multiples of them with glue into more 3D shapes and use more putty to fill the joins, add more bulk and generally make everything come together in natural, curving shapes. This would try to emulate the appearance of the Zealot Miniatures brazier fires. Probably a doomed enterprise given my sculpting skills, but I repeat, I’m foolhardy.21/03/2019 at 13:36 #111162
Sounds like a nice little competition to get people involve. Sculpt some flames and share techniques.
