Though this particular project is Trek-inspired, you can use the basic instructions to create any character you like, whether it be a famous fictional character, an original creation, or someone you know.
This craft isn’t especially messy, but since it requires paint, you may want to cover your work place with newspaper just in case.
Step 1: Gather supplies
Wood men/game pieces
A note about paint brushes: I would recommend investing in a small set of better-quality brushes than the ones that come with sets of paint just because these generic-type brushes are very coarse. For this project, I bought a package of four white nylon brushes (two round and two shaders) and they worked out fairly well.
You may also want to invest in a fine-pointed brush for the smaller details and to get cleaner lines. I didn’t have this brush with these figures, so some of my lines aren’t as neat as I’d like.
As for the generic brushes, don’t throw them away! They’re great for giving texture.
