    Mostly Harmless
  1. That is what the all say. My desk is used for just about everything: computer, grading papers, terrain building, painting, printing pictures, watching TV/Movies on my PC, and half a dozen other things. It gets cluttered and reorganized constantly. Same and am a fellow teacher!
  2. Nice - how deep is the hood on those? Those fit the bill nicely at $9. Looking at using these bulbs: Well, here's a pic of mine set up: 2013-04-26 15.21.11.jpg There's a standard coil CFL in there, much like the one you've linked. Hope that helps. What is the other "thing" in the picture? Another light or a magnification source or a combination of the two?
  3. I just ordered these (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000LXXSM8/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) on a whim. Hoping it helps. I figured for 11 bucks it was worth a shot. I think my shaking hands and impatience need to be overcome, along with learning brush control and how to work with the paint. Lots to learn but it's fun and addicting!
  4. Furongian, are there any issues with depth perception?
  5. I already wear glasses. Will they still work? I'm concerned my vision is so poor without the prescription glasses that the reading glasses wouldn't help
  6. I'm in dire need of some form of magnification. I bought a miniature ottlight/magnifying glass but it was way too small and I had issues with depth perception. Would a bigger mag lamp fix these depth perception problems? What about the headband magnifiers? This is the mag light I was thinking about ordering http://www.amazon.com/High-Efficiency-Magnifying-Lamp-Powerful-5-Diopter/dp/B003ETY1LI/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=1DGULACOU62CA&coliid=IS0DHQ012UQMN thanks in advance for any help!
  7. Any suggestions for good files to use for removing mold lines? I know a lot of people just scrape with a hobby knife but I am finding places the knife isn't doing a sufficient job. Thanks in advance!
  8. I'm starting to think the fact that the eyes on that miniature are recessed behind a helm is part of the problem. I'm starting L2PK2 regardless. Been working on the mold lines on the monk. Going away for the weekend so no painting till Monday at the earliest.
  9. hmmm when I posted that it was showing cash's primed and eye painted mini as the most recent post...sorry!
  10. Cash that post makes me want cry. I just stripped my anhurian for the fourth time because I can't get the face right!
  11. A youtube video I watched about brushes suggested matching diameter and brush length if you are looking to replace discontinued brushes. Do you know either of these measurements for those brushes?
  12. Where can you pick some of these up? i'm in the market for some dry brushes and I'm a huge fan of "cheap".
  13. Yeah i see a lot for sale on Amazon. Just not sure which one to get.
  14. I'm struggling with the whole undertaking. I definitely need some magnification. What brand is that light?
