I was going to guess corn flakes, but I think the pieces would be too big. A cereal with smaller flakes? I believe Special K has smaller flakes than ordinary corn flakes.
Very good margaret , dried oats. The paint could be better but this was just a test piece.
I like the result better than stippling spackle, which is what I'd usually do, but I don't know if it will be quite as durable.
I'm trying to mimic the bark of ponderosa pines, which are incredibly common in my area, & just looks right to me. I'm also on the hunt for a good method for birch bark but haven't found anything I like yet.

Life has been quite grim lately. In an effort to sell off an inventory that amounts to six years of crafting I've created an Album on Facebook for easy reference when selling in the groups there.
I'm not trying to hawk my wares here, just thought you good folks would like to take a gander at the lot of it. Lots of pretty pictures.
I'm not done crafting by any means, but I'm adapting to a vandweller lifestyle & storage space is precious. She's already packed to the gills with what crafting supplies I couldn't bear to part with & the finished, or nearly finished, stuff that was good enough & small enough to bring with me. Everything that was too bulky was offloaded to locals for free or cheap.
I hope you enjoy my work. Here's to new adventures, Caspan.
A side note: I spoke to Scotty recently about this little corner of the internet that he'd created & forgotten. He'd figured it long dead, he was surprised to say the least.

So I frankenstein'd together an elephant & a stegosaurus I found in my last thrift shop haul. It's one of my favorite things to do. The elephant was odd as it had a flat bottom that cut off around the shoulders so the bit you see is all there was of that guy, worked out pretty well.
My buddy suggested making it into a beast of burden with pouches & whatnot strapped everywhere. I think I'm going to try my hand at making some sort of harness that fits up underneath & hangs over the backplates. I know I've got some thin elastic somewhere but if I can't track it down regular string will have to suffice.
Wish me luck & I still need a name for this beast if anyone has any ideas.

Some progress made as far as painting goes. The customer would like it based as well, any ideas? I'd like it to be unique but if I can't think of something it's going to be pretty standard sand, rocks, & a little flock.
You could re-paint him and use him as one of your world's gods/demons. Personally, I would use him as an avatar of the Lizardman god from the non-human deities from the 1e Deities & Demi-Gods book. Very cool figure. Good thing I haven't seen one in a store... Cheers!

margaret: Putting this here because I don't know where else to post it - the site is not letting me post responses today. And it wouldn't let me log out and relog either. Not sure what is going on

Draklith: have your internet settings changed? first thing i"d check, sometimes when you install a new program or something, it will change your settings

margaret: It eventually resolved itself. The computer did update at some point this past week, but I never changed anything in the browser settings to resolve the issue. This site just seems to get cranky with my computer sometimes
