  1. After three or four days of fighting with this one, I think I've got in a manageable state and I can press on.
  2. I've not had a problem with it drying unevenly, but I have noticed that it does seem to have a longer drying time than most. Chalked that up to either having thinned the paint too much or the weather as it has been unseasonably humid. Perhaps it's just another eccentricity of this color.
  3. Well I didn't thin the paint at all tonight and I used a completely new brush and still got bubbles but not as bad. It would seem that there is eccentricity to this bottle or maybe this color, anyway, I think I can move on after this dries thoroughly. Fingers crossed.
  4. Getting it on the brush. I suspect you are correct, so started fresh and went straight out of the bottle, still getting tiny bubbles, but I may not have let the existing paint layer dry thoroughly enough.
  5. Any idea why the above paint is bubbling up? I have been trying to paint a section of a miniature with this color for the last three days and it keeps leaving tiny air bubbles. Very frustrating!!! Thank you in advance!
  6. I plan to use these two colors as the base colors for different items on a figure. What I need is shade and highlight mixes for them. Make sense?
  7. Nicely done. I have tried painting this figure several times and have never been happy with the result, in the end I used it for parts.
  8. Pledged, but I already know that Reaper will be getting more of my $$$$ with all of the incredible add ons.
  9. The Red Lancers and El Greco Miniatures sell a ton a different busts. Most are historical but the sell fantasy stuff too.
  10. Ah, yes you are of course correct, that is why I have had to beg someone that was going to attend to pick a couple of copies up for me. I forgot that I was supposed attend last year and therefor got the swag bag.
  11. Assuming as has been the case in the past that Sophie and mousling will be in the on-line store during the con, I am content (not exactly sure why as I don't really paint minis much these days, having to stick with 54mm and larger, but I do love sophie and the mouslings.)
  12. These look pretty spot on. FWIW, until recently I was an historical painter almost exclusively
  13. Overall a pretty amazing paintjob, but the freehand on the cloak is crazy good!
  14. Unless you're outside, in Texas, without sunscreen or shade. Then you want to stand back and avoid the blast radius of the spontaneous combustion. Touche'! There's that
  15. I entirely accept and respect alternative universe Uhuras! Surely she can have red hair and blue eyes! Nothing wrong with redhair and blue eyes, nothing at all!
  16. All this talk about Firefly is tempting, but nope.
  17. I will PM you with more information when I get a time and date nailed down. I am looking at the third Saturday or fourth Sunday but I do not know when we will start. That works for my schedule generally
