  1. I put together a few documents related to using Bones. I've submitted these to the Craft section of the website, but as it may be a little while before Reaper has the time available to add them, Bryan suggested that I post them here.

I'm really glad I decided to get back into painting cuz it's just so much fun. However, I've gotta say that mold lines are driving me crazy. I don't recall that being an issue for me years ago, so maybe I've become more picky? I dunno. So I do my initial cleaning with a hobby knife, and found that there were some knooks and crannies that I just couldnt do with my knife.
