Very cool mods. They are subtile, but look nice.

OH wow I like alot!

What do you mean how do you improve?
Your better than me so I dont know how.
There great in my opinion.

Your going to have to wait for the GS master to help you on doing better.

I think you did really great good job man.

Nope, no chance you'll improve, give up now

Actually, I think your work is REALLY good - how did you get such crisp purity seals? Did you cast them, sculpt them on a flat surface then transfer, or what?

The only thing I would suggest is to add another piece of parchment to the purity seals, so it has that over lap look - more like the plastic ones.

all I did was to cut off a vey small strip of green and press it on and push it into the seal shape w/ a craft knife (I'm too much of a bumb to buy tools ) and then put a sphere where the wax seal part goes and press into it w/ the back end of my drill bit (god I love that thing, I'd never get anything dome without it ;D).

and the next seals will be 2 layers, when I did those I did them when the green was still very wet and merged together easily, next time I'll let it cure a bit more and I can get 2 layers that way.

and I cant cast them, all the purity seals off the sprues have long since fled, all my minis are 4 year old stripped four times veterans of the painting table (and yes it did take me 4 years to learn to paint marines to tabletop quality ;D, so help me I'm slow )

Default Purity Seals

I think these guys are a couple notches up from table top!

When I make some of my purity seals with GS, I actually start with one slightly fatter strip and the press the flat of a blade at where the sepertation point of the two strips would be, creating the illussion of 2 strips.

* ___
/* * *\
|* * * *|
\___/
|* * * | \
|* * * |* |
|* * * |* *\
|* * * |* * \
|_ __|------* * * *

So, you place the flat of the blade over the red line covering the right half of the GS strip, then press down to make the two seperate leaves.

Hope that helps
