  1. For those of you who might not know, I like shiny metallic paints a tiny bit. Just a little. As in I currently own over 50 20 different metallic paint colors (plus a few metallic inks and a new metallic wash I'm dying to try out), and I painted an entire cat-sized dragon using only metallic paints. So yeah, I'm kinda sorta IN LOVE with shiny paints. While re-organizing my paints the other day, I realized that I have a lot of shiny paints I haven't played with yet, and lots of fun wacky techniques I haven't fully explored with the rest. So, one purpose of this little thread will be to document my metallic paint experiments FOR SCIENCE (and totally not so I can infect everyone else with 'Must Have All The Shiny' syndrome, not at all ). The primary reason I started this thread, though, is because I want to invite y'all to toss questions and suggestions at me about attempting new and different (or even just tried and true) things with metallic paints, since I'm only one person and can only come up with so many ideas on my own. Like let's say you're curious how Reaper's Blade Steel will respond to drying retarder, or layering over two different metallics, or mixed with ink, etc. If you have a crazy idea, I'd love to hear it! Because crazy is where the fun is! To make requests easier, here's a brief summary what I currently own (will be updated as needed): All the Reaper metallic paints. Yes, even that one. (there may be a couple OOP I don't know about that I don't own, but I have all the ones I'm aware of) All of the P3 (Privateer Press) metallic paints Several Scale75 colored metallic paints Vallejo Metal Medium (basically liquid shiny in a bottle. I mix this with lots of things!) Secret Weapon's Golden Brown metallic wash (I'm really excited to play with this!) 3 Liquitex metallic inks (gold, silver, copper) I am open to acquiring new paints to experiment with, to a certain degree; I don't have the funds to go buy an entire new paint line, for example, but I could purchase a couple bottles to try out. :) LIST OF EXPERIMENTS 1) Secret Weapon's Golden Brown metallic wash 2) Attempting to make pink armor from Breast Cancer Awareness Pink NOTE: Unless otherwise stated, all paints used are from Reaper. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
