I made the mistake of ordering a duplicate of 09426 Charred Brown and am struggling to find a general use for it. I applied a very thin glaze over grey I had underpainted with scratches and scuffs over grey and after two coats it did create a somewhat interesting washed out look. But it's a little too dead for leather overall. I think I could mix it in with Scale 75 inks for interesting dark wood, and maybe with purple and blues for dark desaturated shadows, but these are pretty specialized. What have you found it works well for? I've also got an extra bottle of 09458 Kobold Scale and 09483 Twilight Purple, but I think I can use those up quite readily for various things. Also, with the unfortunate demise of Secret Weapon, what Reaper paints would be the best replacements for their rubber colors? They had a reputation for being great for that dead grey cool blue that rubber often reads as. I unfortunately never got a chance to pick up a bottle. Thank you!
After a poll this seems to be the best place to put this thread. For the most part I'll stick photos under spoilers because my phone likes to make them large. So I bought a sketchbook today with the intent to catalog and show off all of my paints. I thought it was quite the appropriate book to get. First I made a grid on a page. Then added the title to each column: Name & SKU, None, Base, Wash, Brown Liner, Blue Liner. That's as far as I've gotten. Next I plan on starting to fill out paint names and SKU's. Then I will prime the squares with some plain white brush on primer (Vallejo in this case). I'm really hoping that the paper is thick enough to avoid the water from just being absorbed. If it isn't I will go to the craft store and buy a better book with different paper and can use this for something else later. Each column is a different thickness of paint/what I'll be putting it over. So None is straight out of the bottle, Base is thinned enough for a base coat, Wash is thinned down to a wash consistency, and Brown and Blue Liner will have each of them put over the primer and then a base consistency paint over that. I'm going to spend some time filling out the names and SKU's and then I'll get to priming the squares. Might go back and go over the lines with a sharpie or pen to make them a little more apparent where the lines are for my sake. ETA: I already have a spreadsheet of all of the paints I own and then sub-sheets broken down by line/company. I think there is a way to put color samples into the sheet but I've yet to figure it out. So I'm making this so I don't have to pull out all of my paints when I need to color scheme something. I can just pull out the book and go from there. It'll be much more efficient for me.
