I created the forms for the Bouncing Bulbs and the Leaping Toadstools a few weeks ago and got to paint them last night. Since they are both fantasy objects, I had a lot of leeway in how to create them although I tried to stay close to the descriptions on the Harry Potter wikis (see my explanation of them at this previous entry). They range in size from 1/2 to 1 inch.

Created with Crayola Model Magic self-hardening modeling material.

Painted in shades of purple. I will give it a matte coat when it is dry and rough up the surface a bit.

The Leaping Toadstools are just perfect and I hope I can get them animated.
