  1. Yup that's what I got. And there is no way that the 0 is a sable and the 000 is pretty meh. I'm overall satisfied though even though I sound salty. I feel that the teacher watered down the paint way more than what it says and my ebony flesh way takes over any color I mix it with even when the guide says 3 to 1.
  2. Are you using soft or heavy body artists paints? I use the Liquitex pro line of heavy bodies on my paintings and made the mistake if using my (real) cadmium red on a figure once but my application process might have just been poor.
  3. I've booked painted models. Paint came off when I handled them roughly but generally it is no problem
  4. If you add it, your mix will be off. Try taking out 15-25% of the matte medium and sub in the anti shine.
  5. They act a lot like inks thinned with medium in my experience. I make my own washes and use citadel depending on the specific need.
  6. Yup. I agree. I have used p3 for years and I am not super satisfied with my 2 brush blending as my main staple of shading and highlighting so I switched to Reaper. It definitely suits my needs better for how I want to paint. The guide has been helpful with consistencies.
  7. Definitely not getting the same colors as shown in the guide with the mixing but maybe that is from camera settings, printing settings in the paper, etc. So far I like the guide, even though I am having to make some adjustments. The wash recipes give me splotchy messes of bath tub rings so I am subbing 1 drop of water for sealer.
  8. I feel better that someone else had the same result. Thank you. I shook the ever living crap out of the marigold and then jabbed a pin in there to open the inside and that definitely helped the coverage but it's still peach not orange.
  9. I'll give it a go. The consistency on the palett looked and felt right but maybe it wasn't
  10. Thanks for the input everyone! I hope Rhonda sees this so she can weigh in on my specific question regarding the image in the book. Yup exactly. I'm just using pure distilled water. I thought it was odd. Maybe I need to shake the bottles more? I'll post pics as soon as I get home from work.
  11. Well you have broken my ability to laugh because nothing will ever be funnier.
  12. Yup that's basically what the guide has you doing. Thanks for replying :) I love those figures you posted. What color is that female vampire figures armor? It almost looks like a beetle and I love it!
  13. Love the reds! What paint is it?
