  1. Thank you all so much!! It was so much fun to paint! I can't seem to do anything "normal" haha! And I just LOVE Galaxy painting, it usually involves a pair of Chucks and The Tardis, but I am happy that I branched out to minis!! Can't wait to share some more models I have painted!!
  2. Thank you, thank you! OMG that is too funny! I could see this encounter going so many different ways haha!
  3. So, I LOVE those paints, that is what I have used here! ( check out my 3rd paragraph in main post) I am happy to see others have discovered them too!!!
  4. Thank you! I fell in love with metallic paints just a couple years ago and can't get enough! lol
  5. Thanks!! It was like an ah-ha moment, Now I need to make more with a bigger scene lol!
  6. So, I have been wanting to try these for a while now, but wasn't sure, as I only brush paint. BUT I found these FolkArt Colorshift paints that are awesome! I found them for about $4/2 oz. bottles at a local craft store. They have a beautiful shine and you can layer them and thin them as normal paints. (If you would like to see some examples, I shared recently in the Show Off thread) I think you and the OP would probably have a great time using them! I purchased just one, because it was with the other bottles of craft paint and I just wasn't sure.... the teal one to start with and I just fell in love, I love vibrant, bold, metallic colors...I now have 8 of them lol, it isn't a huge line of paints btw. Hope that helps! *Niki*
  7. Thanks! I love making bases, it might be a problem. lol Oh, and I had totally not even realized how sculpted the wings were until I stopped working on the front haha! I asked my daughter for advice on what colors to use, so I guess she made some good choices! lol
  8. So guys. I repainted an old D&D mini, in the process learning that it is kinda rare I guess lol..oops! She looks pretty badass if I say so myself! But yeah! This sculpt is awesome and was super fun to paint. My husband runs a couple D&D games, I play in one every other week that is a MONSTER campaign and it is so fun! So in honor of tonight's game night, I wanted to share her! I play a Ranger Drider, this is her! (My other party members are a Rogue Gargoyle, Swashbuckler Rogue Mindflayer and a Cleric Shield Guardian, I can post those minis too, if ya'll like) I used some mystery reaper samples for some base coats and Folkart brand Coloshift paints for accent and omg, this stuff is awesome. I can get it for about $4 a bottle (2 oz bottles) here in Central NY. It is really cool to work with and semi translucent so I was able to layer and manipulate the tones. I wish I could really capture the scintillating nature of these paints! Hope you love her as much as I do and no one hates me for repainting an old classic, hard to find mini! lol Thanks! C&C welcome!
  9. These mini's are sooooo tiny! AND adorable!! I did have some trouble really picking out details on the Fairy and the one I am referring to as "Ragdoll". The soft edges were a little confusing at first and the way the Fairy's body is positioned, it was hard to tell what was leg or clothing! lol But I looked on google to get some reference from others that had already tackled these. That was super helpful! After that I had painted these 3 up and set em aside for a while and worked on other things, not really sure what I wanted to do with them. Then a couple weeks ago I went on a Youtube binge watching soooo mannny videos about basing and came up with some cool ideas! (Stay tuned for more on that!) While cleaning up my bulletin board, a pushpin broke. The metal part, right off. I almost tossed it out, but I have a problem holding onto anything that might be useful later lol. But then I immediately imagined it as a spool of thread. *sketch idea, hold for later* Then I just had to figure out what mini to use and my husband suggested the ragdoll, I mean she is stitched together so ya! Then I did the Treant, those yellow bits on his base are foraged pieces of the invasive plant Virginia Creeper. We have some growing on our shed and as I was clearing it away I noticed how cool the little feets from their vines they use to climb look, so I snipped a ton of em, dried em out and hold onto them for neat terrain. These ones I chose to paint this yellow tone to accent the tree, without taking away or distracting from it! Lastly, was the fairy, I just felt her jamming out on top of a little pile of rocks would be cute lol. So I used cork as stone and little bits of clump foliage and some other cork stone and flock to decorate. Thanks for looking everyone! C&C always welcome!
  10. Comment all you like! lol The glitter totally helped the galaxy effect!! I did paint it all galaxy before the glitter, here are some shots Pre-Glitter! Thank you!
