3D printed miniature of ceremonial objects for the temple (part 1) – Small village setting

In the last photo of the altar you can see how adding some simple object can completely change the aspect of a miniature. Today we are going to see these objects.
Since are small object, that I have to 3D print alone, I made the a little bigger than the 28mm scale.
Before start I warn you that the ceremonial object are divided in two different articles. Today we are seeing the candle, the jug and the censer.

The candles

The 3D model

In the past I already did some candles, but this one is alone on the base. To made it I only used cylinders and a sphere for the flame.
For the base I used a 8-face cylinder to make it sharp, while for the candle I use a 18-face cylinder.
The flame is a sphere elongated with proportional editing.

The 3D print

I 3D printed all the ceremonial objects together, so I used the same settings for every piece. I used layer 0.1mm high, since these are small “detailed” object, and the brum, to a better adhesion to the printer bed.

I 3D printed 4 candles, and it helped me a lot, since I didn’t had deformations due to excessive heat.

Painting

I wanted to try some new color, so I painted the base with a bronze color, but I don’t have that paint, so I did it mixing gold and red. Problem is I used too much red, so I put more gold paint, and in the end I had a large amount of paint I didn’t use.
