Dungeons and Dragons Inspired Twitch Streaming Prop – Health Potion

I took a Hartley Peach Brandy bottle – emptied by myself and my special gentleman friend – and I turned it into a Health Potion ala Dungeons and Dragons. My son asked me to make him a prop for his Twitch stream : Grim Commando 95, and we both chose the potion bottle.

I watched Darkest Raven Designs make her potion bottles, and I copied it only on a large scale. I also didn’t age or label the bottle because my son wanted something simple and basic. For the potion itself, I used:

Glycerin

Red Mica Powder

Water

For the bottle, I used

Push Button light

Foam

Cardboard

Mod Podge

Glue

Acrylic Paint in Brown and Black

Tissue Paper

The end results:

I know these aren’t the greatest pictures, and I really wish I had a decent way to make a video of it because the potion swirls inside and looks really cool with the light shining on it from below.

This is my first time ever doing something like this, and my son was pleased with the result so, I’m happy with how it came out. I’ll be doing more projects with bottles including making a Mana Potion prop for his stream. That will be a while because I want to get a few things to try out with it first.

More great projects are in the works, and I’ll be sharing them with you as I get them done just because I can!! LOL

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

YouTube Tuesday: Black Magic Craft

Canadian Jeremy is the crafter on this channel. Like Neil from Real Terrain Hobbies, he does a lot of terrain. Most of it is for Dungeons and Dragons and similar tabletop RPGs, but he says they can be modified for Warhammer and other such tabletops as well.

Unlike a lot of the crafters of this sort, Jeremy has an entire playlist dedicated to the beginner. As an interested beginner, the videos I’ve watched in this series so far have been incredibly informative without being condescending or dumbed down. He provides a lot of useful information based on his own personal experiences with different tools and techniques. He’s not doing a sales pitch, he’s just telling you what he knows.

Below is the first video in his beginners series, and I highly encourage you to check them all out in the order they are in on the playlist and not the order they were released. He’s adding more to the series as he feels they are needed so please, subscribe to his channel for that if nothing else.

I’m currently watching the video on how to make perfect foam squares for dungeon tiles as I’m a big D&D fan and an experienced DM in the game.

Let me know what you think of him!

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
