  1. if you're using the PaintWork kits, you won't need to prime the models, but you should always clean them of the mold release with dish soap and warm water first. the resin is technically top rack dishwasher safe, so if you get one of those mesh bags for dishwashers, you could put a bunch of the less delicate pieces in there and use dishwasher detergent. just don't wash any dishes at the same time ;)
  2. i don't know how to get the people in charge to make this decision, but this time around - i don't want ANY of the bones to come pre-glued. the people that do it at the factory are so apathetic in their work. i'd rather glue it myself and do it right than have the "convenience" of a poorly assembled figure that is a huge pain to disassemble in order to fix.
  3. you can indeed! You can indeed! I had an old Revell blackhawk that I never got around to putting together and the pieces I tested PaintWorks on had no issue adhering to the plastic without the use of a primer.
  4. Aged Wood with Rusted Iron and Black Wash
  5. i did a sci-fi piece to show off the metallics and let me tell you... getting the colors to show up correctly when there's some metallic reflection really throws off the camera. i must have taken over 50 shots of the piece from different angles, different lighting, flash on, flash off, backlighting, more ambient light, etc etc etc. i eventually had to borrow a camera and i got a little closer in getting a good picture. the colors are pretty close to the real thing, but picture still doesn't do it justice. the whole piece is based with the Gothic Stone kit and dry brushed with the metallic iron. the pipes and floor grates were stippled with the Rusted Iron build-up color, then lightly stippled with the Rusted Iron highlight color. the "vents" were stippled with the Weathered Copper base, then lightly stippled with the Weathered Copper build-up, and then dry brushed with the metallic copper. the monitor was dabbed with some Arctice Glacier base and build-up. afterwards, everything was hit with the black wash to mute the bright colors and give it a really grimy look. the tiles are all 1" square to give you a sense of scale.
  6. The Molten Lava stretch goal has been reached! A total of 67 out of 145 backers participated in the vote. Final Vote Tally For Round 1 Red Brickwork 21 Arctic Glacier 17 Slimy Swamp 8 Sandstone 5 City Block 3 Deep Jungle 3 Rich Earth 3 Mountain Lake 2 Cinder Soot 1 Evergreen 1 Golden Sands 1 Pacific Ocean 1 Well Water 1 Atlantic Sea 0 Leafy Green 0 Red Brickwork is the winner and I'll be releasing it with the "red" version instead of the "brown" unless everyone actually wants the brown version as well. I can certainly offer both if there is demand for it. Due to the popularity of the Red Brickwork and Arctic Glacier color schemes... BOTH WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE $7,000 STRETCH GOAL!!! That's right! At the $7,000 stretch goal, I will make Red Brickwork and Arctic Glacier available to pledge on! Tonight, I'll be working on the new voting list for the $8,000 stretch goal. ALSO!!! I am excited to be able give away my 1st freebie! Back any of the 4 packs... Stoned Quatro Gothic Stone Dungeon Special Ton Of Lumber Great Pyramid Catacomb The Field Stone Dungeon Special Mount Doom Vacation Package Four Stones And A Shirt ...and get a free F-1622 #4 Wooster Brush with your pledge! The stiff white bristles make it perfect for base coat application and stippling effect. This is a high quality brush that is made in America and regularly goes for $3 or more. Wooster Brush was founded in 1851 and has 162 years of experience in making a darn good brush. These are the brushes I use and I feel confident in providing them to you. We're in our final week of the Kickstarter. Tell everyone you know, post to all of your favorite forums, mention the project on your Facebook page and maybe we can unlock more stretch goals I have made a 4 pack of the Aged Wood (Ton Of Lumber) and a 4 pack for the Molten Lava (Mount Doom Vacation Package) kits as new backer levels that you can choose from. Thank you AGAIN to everyone that has contributed to making this product a reality
  7. Seriously... I love playing with the Molten Lava kit :D
  8. a little sample of the Molten Lava and the Arctic Glacier
  9. 1) the color ranges will indeed be expanding 2) i don't know what the shipping costs will be, but the new website will have a shipping calculator tied into USPS, UPS, and FedEx so you can get the best deal for where you live :)
  10. new samples of the recently unlocked Aged Wood kit
  11. that's a pretty epic deal you found there! it's also cheaper to brew your own beer, but not everyone has the time, patience, or skill to do it and prefer to just go to the store to get what they want when they know it will taste like it should. don't get me wrong, i'm not faulting your style. i've always said that if you don't think PaintWorks is for you, then it's probably not. use what you like and PaintWorks will be here if you want to try something new ;)
  12. Willypold Green! LOL! I would totally do Willypold's sci-fi theme, but I don't have that kit already made and it would take time and resources to get it right, so it's not going to be available for voting on. If someone backed at the "create your own kit" level for it, I'd add it to the voting line-up if I can get the color scheme together in time.
  13. HURRAY! We are funded! Thank you everyone! Since stretch goals are next - what is the general consensus on the Molten Lava kit? Would everyone like to keep that as the stretch goal after the Aged Wood or does everyone want something else instead?
  14. They do indeed! I know I'm the creator and proud of my product, but the paints really are quite exceptional. I have a tutorial video being edited right now that shows how easy it really is and that anyone can get the same results with little to no experience as a painter.
