Tiny Gems for Miniatures

Chris Palmer

    I thought I would post a quick weekend update.   I’ve read a couple times, somewhere along the way, about using actual tiny craft gems to replace or add gems on miniatures.  The difficulty is in finding gems small enough to not look totally out of scale with the minis themselves.  Well, today I was in my local Dollar Tree store, and I happened to notice these nail art sets hanging at the end of an aisle, and I wanted to give folks a heads up, so they could get some themselves if they wanted.

    They come in various styles: some with glitter, some with sequins, but also, I found these two (pictured above) that came with teeny tiny little gems.  One with blues, green, and pinks; and the other with oranges, reds, yellows, and whites.    Below is a photo of some of them with one of the Bones I Iconics minis for scale.  I also placed one on the sword hilt as an example.

   I didn’t have a lot of time to peruse the nail department, but it looked like there was some other cool stuff hanging there, and I may have to go back and do a more thorough search.
