    June 29th Backstop QotD:

    Do you use parchment paper when you cook or bake?  Or do you only use it in wet palettes for painting?

    I had bought mine purely for my wet palette, then I found that it was useful for baking various foods in the oven. Weird.

    I too bought it for the palette and now keep a roll in the kitchen and a box of pre-cut in the paint desk...

    I've also used it for ironing delicate things...☻


    Mom learned to bake from her grand mother during the War, and from her mom and aunts...

    She passed many of the recipes on to us kids.

    Many wonderful Swedish confections!

    Are you a clean or messy person?

    By which I mean if there is a health or safety reason for it to be clean,  you can safely bet that it is. 


    My bathroom is clean. My kitchen is clean. My workbench (both at home and work) is a complete disaster. 

    What he said goes for me as well....


    @Chaoswolf, @Glitterwolf I thought you WOOFers had issues with baths....:devil:

    I'm not that satisfied with how Superglue bonds my resin prints...

    For SCIENCE!


    I was at the CT Ren Faire yesterday, and there was an booth selling honest to Hades Miniatures!

    (Most pewter booths sell minis along with their other stuff, this one is just minis...)

    Turnkey minis started out as a hobby for the dad and kids, and grew into a part time business...


    Pretty inexpensive for metal, at abot $2.80 per single figure...


    He had lots of "Villagers" sets of different races for $16, but the ORC set was too different to pass up....001.thumb.JPG.785f911b57d00618454ba1d173998cd2.JPG002.thumb.JPG.0ed3df04d14c306d46f500c7a8a12a7a.JPG


    His store site is currently down due to server issues, unfortunately...

    Nice Guy too...

    Have you used a airbrush before? Own? What kind? Any tips?

    I have 3...

    A siphon feed $20 Badger that I use only for body paint for the Drow costume

    A Grex Genesis XS .3mm

    an Iwata HP-SB with a .2 mm nozzle

    The last 2 are gravity side fed, dual action

    These are used for the full gamut of jobs, but mainly base coating with the Grex as it has a bigger nozzle and feed cup.

    The Iwata is for more detail work, such as painting camouflage on 15mm armored vehicles


    Tips- Clean it, clean it, clean it! Nothing will mess up your brush faster than old paint... It isn't that hard to clean them after use, by now (I've been using the Grex since 2010) it takes less than 5 minutes to clean the brush. Every once in a while I'll spend more time and do a deep cleaning...

    No different than what you do with your kolinski sable brush, just different methods...



    You didn't get to your current skill level with a brush without practice, why should an airbrush be any different?


    They are a tool, like any other tool, they have their uses. Fades for instance...

    I did Marbrezuk and did fades on his claws using the Grex...


    If anyone has the desire, pm me and I will be more than willing to help if I can

    I can also demonstrate things on the Hangout if you wish....

    So some of Flemmy's friends dropped by to keep him company...
