Frostgrave - Treasure Tokens #1
I've been doing a little more work on my Frostgrave warband, and the first of the new batch to be completed are these 2 treasure tokens. I'm trying to keep everything as Olley as possible, and coincidentally these treasure markers, which I've had for years, are some of Bob's work.
They are fun little things to do. What made me extra happy with these though, was using the glitter tip I picked up here, from the Dice Bag Lady. She sells a gem and glitter kit, but I have two young sons, and I figured there had to be glitter somewhere in the house. Sure enough, after some rooting in the craft jar a vial of gold glitter was whisked away to the mancave. I painted on a little pva glue to areas I wanted the glitter to sit on, and sprinkled it on.
It makes an ENORMOUS difference to the treasure token. The pictures don't really do justice to how much it adds to the model. Why I'm so surprised glitter, well, glitters, I don't know, but it'll be easy to spot those tokens on the table.
One tip though. You know what glitter is like. Don't do any sprinkling near anything you don't want covered in glitter for six months.
