    All sorts of things!
  1. Thanks for this incredibly informative post and discussion! I've been reading all the user-written faqs here and doing a lot of homework, because I'm used to painting harder plastic (or primed metal) with tamiya products; I'm not really a fan of the rubbery Bones plastic, since it's harder to smooth and paint and fully half of my minis came horrifically warped right out of the box. Personally, I wish they were hard plastic, like ABS minis or model kits, because this rubbery plastic requires a lot of straightening and apparently requires my investing in a whole new paint array. But it is what it is, so I'm convinced enough to try the folk art glass and tile medium route, (aside from the necessity of occasional black primer base coats, which it appears the only truly viable option is black Reaper primer.) I've been poking around the local craft stores, and all I can seem to find is this: http://www.plaidonline.com/folkart-enamels-mediums-clear-medium-2-oz/45/4035/product.htm I'm assuming you intended for people to buy this product? http://www.plaidonline.com/folkart-mediums-glass-tile-medium-2-oz/56/869/product.htm I also saw this stuff on the shelves. It's pretty watery, and makes me wonder if if could be used for truly liquid washes: http://www.plaidonline.com/folkart-enamels-mediums-flow-medium-2-oz/45/4060/product.htm I'm going to miss my flat coat sealant sprays, as I'm pretty sure they won't play nice with these minis even after priming & painting, and I don't know of any acrylic or vinyl friendly flat finishing options. Gloss or Matte, sure. Flat, not so much.
