After a week away from brushes and internet access, I've realised I had my 100th post to write !
1) I Reached 100 followers !
1) I got liebstered (again...(twice))
100th Follower Celebration Give-away :
I'll then make a list of entries and randomly generate a winner who will receive the converted, painted model (according to the 2 accompanying words).
Here are the models I propose as a base, just state the one you'd like or why not chose a random one !
|Gary Morley elf wizard, Limited edition mordheim character Aenur , Limited edition White dwarf, blood bowl dwarf player|
|Marauder Slaanesh Daemonette, Marauder plaguebearer, imperial preacher, Space farer, Platic Ork Nob|
2 Liebster awards in a week :
If so - what was it and when?
2. What is the best brand of matt varnish you've used so far ?
Or are you miniatures-weirdo operating in the dark room connected by internet with other maniacts around the globe?
My daughter is 3 years old and my boy is 4 months old now so any hobby related common activities are just fantasy for now. I do hope that I can share a bit of my world with them in the furture though.
My daughter seems to have a genuine interest in those "little men" though and I sometimes take her on my legs and ask her what colour she wants on some parts (expect some pink in future releases from here).
I just don't see how one can paint without brushlicking. Nothing shapes a brush after use like the tongue does, nothings is better to blend than saliva and nothing beats saliva when pushing green stuff with my rubber tools... Brush licking and saliva are the 2 best assets in my painting.
Good question. I tend to use matt medium a lot to blend or to create glazes. It really helps to get the right consistency while having far less pigments. A really useful tool I would miss a lot.
Second additive I use a lot is PVA glue. I really like to create my own GW washes by misxing a drop or two if inks with a drop of PVA and 8-10 drops of water. A wash if this mixture rapidly gives a lot of depth to any surface and it can make metals look fabulous.
Next thing I'm going to dry is windex or whatever it is called in France (I guess any glass-washing liquid can work).
I would and I am. I'm actually painting a model for the oldhammer band challenge and the result of this should come soon enough !
I have no idea at all but I do find fascinating to think we're in the midlle of something which could go radically opposite ways with possily tremendous consequences.
There is also room for improvment (see answer #3 above)
