This is the finished Octopus bust from JMD Miniatures. It is sitting on a 1.5" clear acrylic cube instead of a traditional wood or resin plinth. I thought this would help to emphasize the "wet" look and nature of the piece.
I'm going to keep coming back to work on the water effects as it takes a long time to dry between each application. In this picture the top right water droplet is still curing, which is why it has a milky look to it.
