"Here's a nice little trick you can use if you don't have a clamp or vise - Wrap tape backwards around a piece of wood. By backwards I mean wrap it so the sticky side is out. Then you can stick your miniatures right to it.
This is a pretty handy little trick because then you can sit in a comfortable chair and you don't have to lean over a table or a vise. You can use any type of tape like electrical, masking, double sided or even cellophane."
I think this is a great idea. I sure could have used this when I painted my fireplace accessories! Why didn't I think of it? :)
Hope you have a beautiful day!
