TOPIC: Mushrooms

Mushrooms 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
A local Art Gallery offers some really beautifully sculpted mushroom art. I'm there once a week as my kids to there some art lessons. I always walked around them as they seemed great for DF - but they all were attached to some bark as parts of bigger pieces of Art.

Contacting the artist I managed today to buy some individual ones at a different place that sells her Art and is on my way to work - well - one the way if you don't mind a 15 mile tour through the countryside - and English countryside means NARROW roads.

It is end of season - so there wasn't much choice. I took more than half of what was still there. Interestingly they are a different style to what I had seen before. I hope to meet up with the artist in a few weeks when she visits our town the next time to get some more.

I thought I share with you.

Lovely shapes and just the right scale. Not too sure about the colours though. I wonder if you could persuade her to do a load that were all dark mushroom (brown and off whites) colours?

Nice find!

I can ask. She also has done much more delicate cups - but I haven't seem any of these on the individual ones. But I had the feeling a lot was sold out.

I was fine with the bright colours - it adds some contrast - but would like the bases closer to DF colour.

On the subject of mushrooms for any who may be looking for more options, Kromlech just released some.

Thanks for the link. I had a look and they are quite pretty. The only disadvantage I see is the size (6-15 mm - they are pretty small) and that they are rather meant to be added on a base and not as pieces in their own right.

I just had the artist with her husband visiting earlier today. She had a lot of more delicate mushrooms as well as more natural colours. Unfortunately I enjoyed the visit so much and there was so much to show / explain that I forgot to be a good host (no tea or coffee) as well as no pictures from the mushrooms that she brought with her.

Actually - thinking about it - why didn't I buy them straight away ...

And it was really nice to see someone not from the gaming community marvel about the sculpts of DF and the detail and loving work going in to them.

After writing the last message I asked myself - why didn't I buy more when she was here ... Luckily she was still in town and I got a few more.

She had several other very nice mushrooms - including other colours and effects - but they had 'leaves' on them. With leaves I'm talking about a single leave the size of the mushroom which makes them unsuitable for our needs.

These ones all have some moss - please let me know if this adds to them or should rather be left off.

The bases are a lot lighter as DF but these ones just are some examples of previous work. They more represent why I got interested in them.
