    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I used a flat spatula thing I bought for trying to learn to sculpt. It worked pretty dang well.

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    I've never gotten anything but Ravenclaw for my Hogwarts house (took the pottermore quiz something like 5 or 6 times). My patronus is Calico Cat, and my wand is Sycamore with Phoenix feather core, 10", hard flexibility. ...I got pukwudgie for my Ilvermorney house. Mr. Mouse is also Ravenclaw, btw. He wouldn't take any of the other quizzes, though. So...the things for my wand's core and material...I like their descriptions.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Apparently Mr. Mouse thinks it is impressive that I bent some pins in a motherboard's CPU socket back into place...and now the system works well. ...it was a board we were close to declaring DOA. This happened last weekend, but I dont think I said anything here. When the board came in, it had a section of pins that were bent out of shape...but then, I realized some of my mini tools might work to manipulate them...

    ReaperCon '18 swag bag *online version*

    What I'm confused about is that Ron said there were 6, and 6 still showed as in stock when I checked out - I'm worried the total is wrong...since I was F5ing the page...

    ReaperCon '18 swag bag *online version*

    I just checked out with one and it still shows 6 in stock? Is that a site issue?

    New hobby room set-up advice

    Please disregard the disaster around my painting desk... All of my unpainted minis are somewhere in there.

    New hobby room set-up advice

    I have a pretty secretary desk from IKEA I use as a painting & storage station - it's super sturdy AND affordable! But apparently they discontinued it? I can't find it on their site anymore. It was the Hemnes Secretary Desk...I'll post a picture of my station later, but here's what the desk looks like (google search images ftw!)

    [SPLIT] Discussion of ReaperCon class labeling and content

    @Wren Thank you for the explanation! It seems like there is unlikely to be a standard way to make sure no one gets in too much over their head. And I kind of understand - in Proctor's TMM class, he called putting down a puddle of thin paint then sweeping it up toward the light glazing. It was very different from the techniques I saw in Corporea's class for glazing. Corporea told me to use a big brush for much the same reason you said, then I was told my brush was picking up too much water and to use a really, really small brush in Proctor's class.

    Pathfinder Version 2

    I will say, I loved the session I played with @Thes Hunter, BUT I ended up not using many of my resonance points because they seemed too limited...which resulted in my alchemist playing a little too like a rogue. The battle mechanics feel good...I didn't get a super feel for the rping mechanics. I'm not sure, however, why they chose to have such a small value for the resource that is supposed to be central to each class. It felt...off. Additionally, for the pool size, resonance points are being used for way too many things at once... My only personal problem so far is the resonance points. I slightly prefer this character creation over 5e, but I will say I find 5e character creation way too limiting option wise, so I liked the idea of being able to do less potentially, but have more choices on what to do.

    Trends with Kickstarter Exclusives

    I dislike exclusives, particularly as I experienced being a newcomer to the hobby and realizing there were exclusives I never have a chance of getting - just because I wasn't part of the hobby yet. It makes it feel like newcomers are bit shut out, to me.

    On other thing - I had the understanding that @Corporea's class was a blending class, just one focused on skin. I had no idea, however, that the TMM class I took would need glazing instead of feathering. Thankfully, in my third class that required glazing, I was able to figure it out for the small area needed for the scars... One of my biggest frustrations, though, was being told once that I needed to use at least a size 1 for glazing, then being told to use a 00 for glazing. I know that was a difference in instructor preference, but it would have been nice to better understand why they were each making that suggestion.

    Honey Lavender Ice Cream

    My dad's Soda Shoppe in Michigan sells Honey Lavendar Gelato on occasion (he rotates the flavors), and it's probably my favorite he's had so far!

    [SPLIT] Discussion of ReaperCon class labeling and content

    I know I would, for one, like the descriptions to include what kind of blending a student needs to know for a class. I believe I'm intermediate, BUT I'm still not very good at glazing. I had no idea that 4/5 classes I signed up for assumed I knew how to glaze. Additionally, I don't know if it was offered this year, but a Blending with Glazing specific class would be helpful. If someone thinks I'm still beginner, I'd love to know, but I was really frustrated since I couldn't get the glazing right in the classes. I still am staring frustrated at the model from @Corporea's class on skin, and she did help a lot... But I know I'm missing something when it comes to glazing. I loved @Kuro Cleanbrush's class for feathering and layering, but I didn't realize I was so far from having glazing correct.
