Fun with OSL! I normally don't take dark photos because I like to see the work, and sometimes dark photos just look like a blob of color to me. I wanted to included them here, though, because when lit like this, you can really see the contrast that I tried to convey in this model. I've been working on all kinds of stuff lately, and contrast is the glue that binds all of those skills together.
I wish my phone camera could get better photos of this mini, but the contrast is so wide that it just doesn't want to cooperate. I wanted to practice some OSL, and I chose violet. I also wanted to try building a different kind of base, and the wraith seemed like it would look at home in a bog. I think the back turned out better than the front. I may go back and deepen some of the front shadows at some point.
Tips on OSL and other things are welcome!
Cuttlefish Colors is a hobby acrylic paint line that we here at the studio have developed. These paints work and blend very well with other major brands of hobby paint on the market right now, but at a much cheaper price tag.
Why use Cuttlefish colors
Beastclaw Raider painted using Cuttlefish Colors For years we used just about every other major brand of hobby paint out there, always looking for that perfect color, the smoothest paint and the most cost effective.
Lets face it, if you’re into tabletop war-gaming you know how expensive this hobby can be. We were so tired of spending 5-6 dollars a bottle on paint, only to have them dry out with their flip top lids, the dropper styles were great but so difficult for us to get locally, and the consistency of the color varied greatly.
Deathguard Marine painted using Cuttlefish Colors So, ten years ago we began doing research on the properties of hobby paint, how it’s made and where we can get the materials to do this. After hundreds of failed attempts to “make” our own paint and thousands of dollars spent on failed formula’s we finally found the one that worked the best.
This formula gives you a smooth thin coat with good coverage and blends fantastically with other colors in the line, AS WELL AS other hobby paints on the market. we began to experiment with different pigments and for the past 2 years have been painting miniatures with the paints we would mix up and bottle for ourselves.
It was about 6 months ago that our friends and local game group started asking about what colors we used and we told them, Well, We make our own. Ever since that day people have been asking us "Can we buy some of your paint?" After thinking about it and seeing if it was possible...well...here we are!
We are very excited to bring our line of hobby paints to everyone, and can't begin to thank you enough for checking us out and hopefully, just hopefully pledging!
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts,
I hear horror stories about people getting frozen bottles of paint. Is there any way to tell if the paint has been frozen prior to using it? I was concerned about this when I did my holiday paint order, but it was a little unseasonably warm the day they were delivered. What does frozen paint look like & is there a way to salvage it if it has been frozen?
