Painting pros and longtime hobbyists tend to customize this solution, but the solution you’ll see here is a great option if you’re starting out.

Do you temp-base your own minis for painting? If so, how? Tell us in the comments below!

  1. A great tip I picked up awhile back at GenCon was to use a plastic soda/water bottle top and just super glue the mini to the cap. Breaks off easily enough when done and doesn’t damage to the base.

  2. Is it me or is the audio and video not synced together for portions of the vid?

    I’ve been using cork (I use the big end on top for the mini to sit on for more stability and the small end to hold) for awhile. I paint models for tabletop gaming (historicals usually). It is a Godsend for painting my Perry Miniatures minis.
