Bases are done!

I shall admit that I am inordinately pleased with how these turned out. I often buy things based on how they look painted up in pictures. Then I’m faced with A) whether I can come close to executing that appearance and B) whether I want to do something different. In this instance I knew I wanted something like how the bases were depicted but wasn’t sure how to achieve the glowing look.
Long story short: I decided to see how far dry brushing, something I’ve heretofore done little of and almost all that to create a stone look, could get me. I learned a good bit along the way and will definitely be deploying dry brushing more. I shall confess I thought it was a lazy technique and I now know that it is absolutely the best technique in some situations.
Process: I pretty much just inked with a dark blue and then did successive highlights with the colors shown. (Same for the blue wells but that I did with a normal brush). I painted the metal (I may still grime that up a bit) and the leaves and they’re ready for their permanent residents.
I have magnetized them all. That’s easy as long as you drill through the black base before you put the topper on. I may even go get a step drill bit for this purpose as normal bits can get pretty grabby.
