This is a great video on what to check when things aren't working right. The guy is a tshirt artist, but many of the tips still apply to minis or even cars.

Just a heads up, I just finished using Reaper Grey Liner, thinned 2-1 with a water / Windsor & Newton mix onto the tower from DDS 2. Worked well.

      So, I've just started recently and after much research, I figured out that I'd need a few 'throw' away brushes for dry brushing, gluing, etc, and then at least one decent brush.  I picked up a cheap variety pack of brushes from walmart for $3 and a winsor newton #1 .  My expectations on the WN were...not met.  It doesn't hold a tip well at all, the moment I touch it to anything, it starts to splay out. In fact, the cheap brushes from Walmart seem to do better. 
      Bad brush possible? Or bad technique? Am I expecting too much?  I've definitely not let paint into or dry in the ferule, I rinse often, and i tend to twirl the edge of the tip to bring it to a point on the pallet.

      We are doing a video tutorial series on how we have been painting figures.   The past couple years we have been working out a way for those who are inept (like me) and those who are adept (like Christie) to be able to paint figures fast, and well enough that they look good in person and in a photo.   We have made substantial progress incorporating and modifying techniques we have learned from others (many on these forums,  classes at reaper-con, etc.) Here is out latest video,  step two of our pre-shading process.  Feedback and questions always welcome!

      Hello all,
       
      After watching many painting tutorials I have noticed that it seems like many more professional artists use somewhat larger sized sable/kolinsky brushes than what I expected.  I am currently using a size 0 and a size 000, but it looks to me like people are using sizes 1 or 2 and they are able to maintain much finer points when painting. I am struggling to maintain a fine point while painting with both brushes and I was wondering if the larger brushes were better for that?  Maybe I am just actually painting wrong?   I am still learning a lot about paint consistency too so can that be a factor? Learning to paint with real hair brushes is much different than learning with synthetic ones. I may be the only one who thinks that, but to me, the brush just behaves differently. Thanks for your input!

      So,
      Our own Wizard most Wild mentioned getting this stuff and finding that it worked for him, so I ordered a bottle of it, as I do a little airbrushing from time to time....
       
      I spent 2 hours or so looking at videos on youtube about how this stuff is used, and decided that the Wolf Demon (77307), that I used for the Hangout Airbrush tutorials last year, would be a good test subject for it, as I was not going to jump straight onto Nathvarr...
       
      The first recommendation I followed was to spray the model with Glosscote, to protect the paint underneath.

      I then, again following a tutorial, I daubed the stuff on with a semi junk brush, and let it dry,

      I then did another coat, and this is what it looked like after it dried...
      (Taken at the end of my paint session last night)

      so tonight will see if it works....
       
      ALSO, in one of the tutorials, the artist was coating his W&N SERIES 7 (!) brush with brush soap before painting this stuff on....
      The brush I used was one that I liked to use for painting bases and such, and it is pretty much trash by now, even after rinsing often and an overnight soak in W&N Brush Cleaner & Restorer...
      RIP>>>>

      So I'm gradually gaining some confidence with this hobby, but I'm abusing and ruining my brushes.  I just broke out a 1-Reaper Pro Paint brush that I got at my FLGS and was painting some more Zombicide figures.  I was dipping and painting, and dipping and painting, and basically never rinsing since I was using the same color.  Now, I've lost my point. The brush separates at the end which makes it next to useless.  Was this from my failure to rinse?  How often do you need to, particularly when you're not switching colors?

      Also, I thought I read someone talk about brush soap, preservatives, etc.  Would they have this at my FLGS?  Please tell me what I need and some brand names so I can stop going through brushes.  Thanks.
