Pocket Sized Zombie Apocalypse Practice

A load of tiny little plastic people arrived in my mailbox yesterday.


I wanted to jump right in for a bit of practice and my friend Paula Mould suggested zombies. I couldn't resist!

I stayed up past my bedtime to make the teeniest zombie apocalypse you ever did see.

And these wee things are TINY. I didn't really have appropriate brushes (all of mine look like they've been chewed on) but all things considered they didn't turn out half bad.

But it does look like a trip to the craft shop for some supplies is in order. New paint. New brushes. My life is soooo hard sometimes ;)

P.S. That locker tute IS coming. I filmed it and then realized that the footage was crap and that I hate my camera. *sigh* Fingers crossed the camera fairy visits me this weekend.

P.P.S. I've popped a few sets of little people up on my etsy shop if you're inclined to join the dark side and lose your eyesight painting minis too.

  1. YAY! Welcome to the world of pulling-your-hair-out-of-your-head fun that is painting tiny people! Seriously, 00 and 000 brushes will save your life (and at least your sanity). I order a few every supply run, even if I am not in need, because I know I will be if I let them run out. Those zombies look pretty sweet though and they're "decayed" nicely. I can't wait to see what you raise from the dead with teeny brushes at your disposal! :)

    1. Immediately went out and bought a small supply of brushes. I'm a terror when it comes to brush care so I'm sure I'll need a big box of them. I'm excited to play around. So many ideas tumbling about in my head. Any recommendations for paint?

  2. This is incredible. I think you're being too hard on yourself. I love this, yet, another creative wonder by you. Thanks so much.

  4. Oooh! How cool! Haha! I think they look best when the brushes have been chewed on a bit after all they are Zombies. Don't want them to look as though they are Team Revlon... lol!
