  1. So just a random question, or comment: I have a brush that I always use for sealing my miniatures and thought I at least rinsed it out reasonably well or cleaned it out. Apparently not. Last week when before I used it, I actually took an exacto knife to the brush and started scraping old sealant off bristles, until it was actually much cleaner than it as previously. Has anybody else ever done this?
  2. Hello there! I was wondering if anyone would have any idea how water resistant a properly sealed painted miniature might be? I'm asking because I was wondering if it would be completely disastrous to display them in an open top terrarium where they would probably be exposed to a bit of humidity and might get slightly wet sometimes. I'm entirely new to this, so I'm not sure if this is a silly question, but I'd really like to be able to put my minis in my mini forest where they'd look right at home. But I also don't want them to start getting gooey after a while or anything. They aren't masterpieces, but I've grown quite fond of them and would be sad if their faces melted off. If anyone has any experience with this or something similar or if you have any other suggestions, I'd be super grateful!
  3. I just finished my first paint job ever, which I'll post soon for comments and advice. In the meantime, do I need to apply a sealing coat of some kind? This is a Bones mini, if that makes a difference. Thanks!

    drying time?

    So all, I just finished something this morning, the combination of middle age and wanting to get things done before people start waking up and make me do other random fun things (like take down the Christmas decorations) and I want to seal it. I normally wait for a day for whatever reason, but I'd like to get this figure finished and move on. Is there a recommended minimum drying time for paint before you throw varnish on it?
  5. Until recently I've been making the mistake of trying to use Testors DullCote as a protective layer. No hard gloss underneeth. I'm wondering if it isn't too late for me to protect my old miniatures by spraying a layer of Krylon Gloss over top their original Dullcote layer. Of course, after that I would have to spray another layer of Dullcote... Is it possible that having these alternating layers of dullcote and gloss could ruin the appearance of the miniatures? Yea, I'm being paranoid ;)
