The miniature figures are scale representations of the human figure. They are usually divided into historical figures, fantasy figures and famous people. Painting miniatures is a hobby that has reached a very high level today in many of its facets, each with its own particularities, but all characterized by the stimulation of ideas and the contribution of different painting techniques. Today, modelers have an apparently inexhaustible amount of accessories and reference material for the realization of their figures.

The sculptor is the one who begins with the figure. Your activity is to create the thumbnail from scratch. Modellers’ sources of inspiration are usually history books, pictures, novels, movies, comics, etc.
The most common sizes of figures in the world of miniatures are: 54mm., 70mm., 75mm. 90mm., 120mm., Busts, etc.
The sculptor begins with a wire, usually copper, with which he builds what would be the miniature skeleton. It is then when he begins to work with modeling putty, of which there are different types, such as A + B, MagicSculpt or Milliput among others. They are all two-component spousal putties, which begin to harden as the two join. Using the different tools, the sculptor begins by putting the figure’s body with putty on the wire skeleton. Once dry, start by making the clothes and the various accessories that complement it.
The sculptor then has two options, if the figure is only an original, he will then go on to paint it, but if it is a commercial figure, he must separate the different parts of the figure (depending on how it is the same) so that it can be used as a teacher to create the different copies. The commercial figures are usually made of lead or resin.
