  1. Hey Shadowphaze, sorry you thought I wasn't interested in teaching the NMM class, but I can assure you that was not the case. Teaching is something that I really love to do and I am always open to valuable feedback. If you have any suggestions for making my classes better, I am all ears. Please feel free to email me at [email protected]. I appreciate your feedback! Hope you feel better, con crud sucks!

  9. Using a wet palette takes some getting used to. That being said, I won't paint without one! Parchment paper works best as it doesn't allow water through but keeps your paint workable for a long time. Wax paper will work in a pinch but does let water through and thus does not let you have full control over your paint consistency. Also over time the wax paper will break down and you will have tiny flecks of wax in your paint....this is really bad and hard to fix once dried on your model! If you go with a mastersons palette, don't use their paper either as is let's watter threw very quickly.for best results, make sure your water level is flush with the paper...this will keep your paint workable the longest. If you don't have a sponge, use 3 or 4 paper towels folded into quarters. As soon as the parchment paper touches the water it will want to curl up so put a pot of paint on each corner for a couple of minutes to keep it flat. As for adding water to your paints I recommend that you only add water to the outer edge of your paint....this way if you put too much water in, you can easily add some undiluted paint to the mix! Hope that helps!
  10. Me neither...I leave at 1:27 on united
