I had planned to take some time off from painting to start testing a new game system I want to introduce at my local shop. My intention was to take a couple weeks to really stress test and learn the system before attempting to teach it. That didn't exactly happen as now a month later I haven't touched a paint brush or a single die. Between myself and the family getting sick plus all the spring work I've spent what little free time I have in the evenings watching movies or mindless television. While setting up my game testing table however I came across some terrain that really needed some attention. It seems my old foam rocks have seen better days. Knowing that "fixing" them wouldn't take long I grabbed them and added them to my desk where they sat for a month. So tonight I figured they would make for an easy project to get back into the groove. Grabbing a brush I got straight to work and really enjoyed a nice evening of painting. Having acquired these second hand however I had to use my best guess when it came to color matching. As you can see on the two dry pieces I did not get the color right. Up close this is very noticeable but at tabletop it is not that bad, so I'm counting it as a win, besides it still looks much better than exposed blue or pink foam.
At least I think it's rubber cement. I got a pretty little Ral Partha Khisanth (thanks DispatchDave!) who was put together and covered with blobs of rubber cement, I assume. It was soft when I poked my poking tools into it, and amber coloured (I'm tired, "poking tool" is a technical term, leave me alone!). I got most of it off, but there's areas of it left on her, and I don't want to scrape at her and damage her scales. Is there something which will soften the remaining bits safely so I can get them off without hurting my pretty little dragon?
