I've been searching high and low and cannot find anything I'm looking for. Does anyone have tips on painting linen or linen type colors with reaper paints? I'm about to start painting the Avatar of Sokar and wanted to do a linen type color for the cloth around his waist. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Pingo posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyBecause cookie season. This ain't no Pingo's Shambolic Kitchen, though. My cookie recipes are time-tested and approved. These are cookies I invented for a friend who developed diabetes, and who for some reason is less affected by potato starch than grains. They are light, crisp, nutty, and not too sweet, a little like tender biscotti, excellent for dipping into tea or coffee. They are also, as a side effect, gluten-free. My husband, not normally a fan of nuts, considers these the best almond cookies he has ever had. Gluten-free Almond Cookies 4 ounces butter 3/8 cup sugar 1 large egg 1/4 teaspoon almond extract 1 cup dried powdered potato starch 1 cup ground blanched almonds pinch salt Preheat oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius, if I got that right). Sift together the potato starch, the almond meal, and the salt. In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar until well blended. Add the egg and almond extract to the butter mixture and beat until pale and fluffy. Stir the dry ingredients into the rest until blended. Roll the dough into balls between one inch and three centimeters in diameter and place well spaced onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 25 minutes or until the edges just turn golden brown. Cool on wire racks and store tightly covered.
I've been painting a little while and have a few metallic paints, both Reaper and GW. Any way, I was blown away by the miniature pictured next to Julie Guthrie's shark greens. Specifically, the miniature's helmet looks so shiny you could shave in the reflection. These photos inspired me to experiment with media and varnish. I came up with a medium that is 2 parts Liquitex Gloss Medium, 1 part Winsor and Newton Flow Improver and 1 part water. This I mixed 1 for 1 with my metallic paints. Then I experimented with various varnishes and found Liquitex Hi-Gloss Varnish to be pretty nice. Still, I doubt I'll get anything as shiny as the mini in those photos. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know if that was that one of Julie's figs next to the sharks, or did somebody else paint the knight in question? I've reposted the photo here for ease of reference.
