About

To do the right work you need the right tools!

Small, efficient and unique!  An irreplaceable painting tool to totally change your painting game. Move it vertically and horizontally in a blink. Your miniature will never drop, it offers stability and precision to the smallest detail. No strain felt in your hands.  

 I Scream Art's purpose is to improve and innovate your painting experience. We want you to use our holder, not because is cool or you like its color but because it helps you paint your miniatures on all levels possible.  It cannot be replaced or reproduced through other improvised “tool” due to its unique design and features. Simply to use and efficient, we can really say that this is an indispensable miniature painting holder which, you don’t actually hold because your finger is doing all the work by keeping it attached to it just like a ring! It is the first holder allowing your hands to move freely while still having it in your hand, this way the painting process speeds up and you feel less stressed by holding and releasing when you need to grab some other painting bits.  

  • 360° rotation vertically and horizontally
  • Lightweight
  • No stress on hand
  • You can reach the highest precision
  • Convenient size
  • Fast and secure attachment with the N52 magnets
  • Attractive design

 Adjusting the ring

The Ring needs to be placed on the Intermediate Phalange of the Middle Finger. It can be worn on the index finger as well but for best results it is recommended to be placed on the middle finger. Feel free to experiment on different fingers. 

 The Ring size can be adjusted from 13mm to 25mm to match all finger sizes

Slotted Cork Base.

The power of N52 magnets

  Tips:

  • To reach the highest accuracy even in harder to reach corners ,you need to prop the hand you paint with on the one holding the holder. 
  • Using more magnetic bases can speed up your workflow because is easy and quick to switch between them
  • Removing the base with the miniature altogether and still keeping the ring holder on your finger can speed up the painting process (when you need to grab some other painting bits).

What others have to say:

"That is finally a fresh idea in the jungle of miniature holders! Good luck :)"

"What a cool idea. Portable, adaptable! If traveling, you can bring so many!!"

 "That’s very different"

"WoW, that's clever!!"

 "Up until The Ring I had never been tempted by miniature holders. Everything always seems so large, clunky and unnatural.  But at the same time my chosen solution - miniatures spot glued to nail heads - had severe limitations and some clean up work at the end. So when The Ring came along and I was able to test it: boy was I converted on the spot!  "The Ring has several huge advantages over other holders. Firstly, and the most obvious to me, is that it has multiple head types. With a quick click-on and click-off, you can swap between a slotted base holder, a putty holder, or cork holder, which also means that you can have several projects painting at once (which I always do), each on their own stand, and one Ring to clip them onto!  "Secondly, and this cinched it for me, but The Ring is slim and fits into the hand as ergonomically as I have ever encountered. Painting feels as natural as it does when holding the miniature in my fingers.  "Anyone who likes miniature holders should take a serious look at this, and anyone who has been on the fence: this should be the mini holder that gets you off it."  Alyssa Faden (Pro painter)

 "Very innovative and original approach for making both, hobby and professional miniature holders. Magnets holding pieces together are very strong, entire holder is very easy for use. My sincere recommendation for these holders." Aurelio Belgrade (Pro painter)

"What I like the most is that this product allows you to rotate the cap with your thumb easy. That means you can paint and reach your  miniature from  different angles which is important. It's a very easy to use product , and after some minutes you get comfortable with.Very important for the correct use is to adapt the ring correctly on your finger.Thanks I Scream Art for sending me your mini holder."Georgios Galazoulas (Pro painter)

 "A great initiative on the miniature holder. The Ring works so well, it's comfortable in your hand and super easy to use. Magnets are super strong so rhere are no worries that it will drop your precious minis. The Ring allows you to reach all the places on your model from various angles. Love this product and I highly recommend it." Monkeymeeks (Pro painter)

 "I received The Ring from I Scream Art and have been using it every day while painting my 28mm figures. The product fitted perfectly on my finger and I had no need to alter the size, although if needed, it is fully adjustable. I have found it very ergonomically formed and comfortable, which prevented fatigue, while using it over a long period of time. The magnets are really strong but they also give you some freedom, to change the position of the holders quickly and securely. The 360° turning / rotating possibility, is another added advantage. This provided me with the opportunity to reach the figure at every angle, by using just a flick of my thumb. A great idea for beginners and professional figure painters"  Sascha Herm (Pro Painter)

If we will fulfill our mentioned goal,we will be able to mass produce The Ring Holder. We wish to offer a high end product because we value quality and we believe that all products should be of high quality and not  only in painting miniatures hobby. The Ring Holder will be produced only from high quality  ABS plastic and will be of two colors, black for the ring and orange for all of the three bases  (if the color stretch goal will not be unlocked). If the stretch goal color will be unlocked,you will get the extra optional presented colors (refer to stretch goal section).

 We have a flat shipping charge for all the level pledges and you will be asked for your shipping costs at the end of the campaign. Backers from outside of EU will be responsible for additional taxes applied to their countries.

 Additional shipping costs may be added to your pledge depending on the quantity of  purchased add-ons. 

 
       My  name is Marian Gabriel Alfons, I am the founder of I Scream Art. I am 44 years old, a father and a husband and I fell in love with this hobby since 5 years ago. I like doing stuff with 3D programs and print them. Since I was a child I was a crafty person and I had a 'weakness' of being a perfectionist. This weakness made me see small mistakes in different things and feeling the need to correct them. I became devoted to this hobby and I think that each one of us needs to contribute with something to improve our beloved hobby. 

I Scream Art's target is to create truly useful tools that will improve the miniature painting hobby.

Risks and challenges

Because we intend to go further with our project in the future, we are very interested in keeping a good and long term friendship with our backers and to deliver a high quality products.
The items exposed in this campaign are already at a level where is possible to be mass-produced quickly.
We will be open from the start and keep you updated all the way through our delivering and processing progress.
We have selected October as a delivery month but you can expect your products even earlier than this,but we took some more time as a safety method.
