    Crowley's Cassie needs help

    Blending will come easier to you with practice. What I am seeing in your picture is that it is very muddy compared to the store model especially in the skin. This is due to the darkness of the liner undercoat. This is why I almost always use white to prime with. It makes the lighter colors look a lot better.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Blarg! I woke up to rain and no sunshine. I want to go back to bed, but I can't. I have my volunteer shift at the VA in a bit and I have to get some groceries. And I accidentally gave my dog cat food this morning. She was thinking "Jackpot!" The cats got cat food so they are good too. Maybe the rain will go away later and I won't feel so tired.

    Help with pinning

    I have done this too. It is totally salvageable. From the picture, I presume that the pin hasen't been glued yet. If so soak in some acetone (if you have it on hand) if not, acetone nail polish works well too, especially if you have the salon strength for glitter polishes. To fix it, first pull the pin out of the part. Then use green stuff or other putty of your choice and fill in the hole. Completely fill the hole, using a small tool or piece of wire. Blend the area where the pin came through the piece to hide the hole. Let the putty cure for 24 hours or so, Then re-drill the part.

    I have found hobby sized drill bits in hardware stores. I think they were in the Dremmel section they work fine in a pin vice.

    Help with pinning

    Don't let the pinning and putty-ing intimidate you. It just takes a bit of practice. If you mess up pinning you can fix it with putty. Just fill in the drill holes with putty, let it cure and try again. As for worrying about the bit sizes, I just compare my bits to the part I need to pin and pick the one that is the best match. I do the same with picking wire size. I have a three or four sizes of floral wire that I got at a hobby store. They should last for a very long time. The floral wire is very easy to work with and should be fine for all but the largest pinning needs, for example a large metal dragon. This is a pretty good video on pining. He uses paper clips as pins, which will require hardened wire cutters. Floral wire can be cut with jewelry cutters. The video shows pining on an arm. I use a slightly different version where I hold the pieces together and use a very fine point Sharpie to make marks perpendicular to the pin at the top, bottom, and sides then on then on both parts connect the lines across the pinned surface making a + that marks the center of the pieces to be pinned. Hope this is helpful and make things seem a bit easier.

    Getting to Know You, June 2018

    Spring because I get really tired of the cold, short, energy sucking days of winter. Spring is great because the days are longer so I have more energy and all the flowers start blooming and everything looks alive again.

    Storing Greenstuff in the fridge also helps it stay good longer. Also, if you get the ribbon type where the blue and yellow parts are touching cut out the strip where they touch so you have a blue ribbon and a yellow ribbon and store them separately. If you don't it starts to cure along the area where the two colors touch.
  11. I did. I got two sets so I could have the Rulers of Hell, a couple of fauns and a couple of sets of big wings for conversions.

    I know I don't really need a primer, but getting a white primer or base coat should make details easier to see because it covers up the translucency. I'll get around to experimenting with it eventually.

    She already has two cats. They get along pretty well. The older cat played with her a little when she was a puppy. The other cat never really plays with her, except for sometimes trying to catch a wagging tail. She does snuggle with Widget when the weather is cold. She would probably like a kitten though.

    Widget doesn't quite get to rottweiler levels, but she can get pretty close to German Shepherd.

    Non yappy. She does bark though. When she barks she sounds about three times bigger than she is. She once scared a post person who knocked on the door to deliver something that needed a signature. I picked Widget up before I opened the door and the post person said "oh she sounds alot bigger than she is".
