  2. Since I paint 75mm and larger I seal with Krylon Matt or for some effects High GLOSS spray paint. BTW if your going to Reaper Con some vendors sell great carrying cases, when I played DND I use fishing tackle boxes now there is a whole world of packing carrying and display cases you can save your paint efforts from serious damage.

  3. Thanks so very much!!! DKS and Glitter Wolf. I come from a background as a theatrical set designer and builder of props. I totally understand the need for both period and accurate representations and the challenges that fantasy bring to the miniature and theatrical world. Reaper miniature bring for me the freedom to create and get funky. The painters I have met at previous cons have all encouraged me to dig deeper into my approach to painting on such a small scale. So minute that  I wish every figure was a cyclops since getting two eyes to match brings on migraines, I'm signed up for the eye paint class!!! I am looking forward to this years con and seeing as many of you all as I can greet and learn form. last year we missed the event due to a funeral. I do want to note that Michael Proctor has been a most gracious coach and inspiration calming my fears to compete in the wacked out sphere that I bring to the con. I am always humbled by the Master painter and likewise encourage to think big and paint small very very small.

  5. Ulfheathen for your monochromatic dragon Ebonwrath google some of the famous Film Noir images to see how subtle and magnificent these three non color colors can be executed. Also source Edward Gorey illustrations for ideas. Many of the techniques used by engravers and etchers can be uses on your dragon to enhance the DULL LOL lot of your colors. Dots, crosshatching, dashes even raised or pitted circles. Gradations or washes also can serve as a base to add detail on top of.  Such as starting at the tip of the wings especially if the end in talons or claws with pure bright white and then grating to the body to darkest black.

  6. Greens and the process of sculpting always freek me out. I worked in 1/4 scale as a scenic designer and all my items were then made HUGE for the stage. The first shocker I had was when I saw Bobbie Jackson sculpting his Halfling Pirate and he was explaining to me at that long ago con how he sculpted. He showed me the green and said it was a hafling I looked at the boots and asked "but halfing's don't wear shoes" he promptly hacked off the boot and sculpted the foot in front of me. That was a total paradigm shift for me ever since then the world of miniatures has been a wonder to me. I will never ever grasp the smallness of it all.

    Watching the evolution of your Chaos Frogs is a marvel from Izzy's sketch to one big broccoli badass frog that I can paint is a froggie bottom break down for me.
