254: Fleshy eggs from popcorn

In which I will show how to make alien egg sacs. I put these on a mysterious objective marker. Should also be handy for terrain or Tyranid bases.
  1. Start with a bag of cheap popcorn kernels. Nothing fancy. You may need to wash with detergent.
  2. I usually use oil, if I am planning to eat them. This will cause problems. I found that I could get them to pop by leaving the grill to get hot, then putting a tray in very close. A few should come out right.
  3. Glue them to your base.
  4. Dilute PVA to seal (also acts as a fine primer).
  5. Paint.
  6. I also added some UHU glue strings to complete the look.
A "before" shot.
