All you needs is Sculpey, some paints and some time and you can make a sweet lizard like this one.

Using wire to make a skeleton greatly adds durability to your creations.

I use a dry brushing technique when painting miniatures. I paint the whole figure black and then add layers of color starting with darker tones and using very little paint on my brush.

You can use watered down glue on the base of the figure and drizzle dry grass, sand or some kind of green powder on the still wet glue to make the lizard look like it is standing on grass.

Adding a glaze to figure keeps the paint from flecking off and adds durability to the figure.
