So. At the start of Reapercon live 2020, my hobby room was a semi organized space, that wasn't really planned out. I also had not taught online so I had to create an area to do that. This meant shuffling things around to clear up space for a PC, cameras, class supplies etc. Post Reapercon I was left with a huge mess, as more shuffling occurred to not only teach, but to take a few courses. Here are a few shots of my space on the last day of Reapercon... So... one of my sons had moved out in mid 2019... he had left his room like this. I called it his long term storage Thus began a journey to make a space that would be better suited for painting, sculpting, teaching and storing the hoard that is my backlog. First few days were just getting his stuff out and repainting the room. Then, my wife helped me with refinishing the floor Then Saturday, I started moving every thing up to the new space... Lots of stuff
Dear forum, While doing research for my little hermit project (found here) I have been watching a lot of painting tutorials on youtube lately. I came across many techniques using rattle cans or even an airbrush and I would very much like to try some of those (like zenithal lighting or spraying on base coats and varnishes). Getting an airbrush would also be nice... Here is the problem though: I live in a rented apartment with no dedicated hobby room or even hobby table. There is no garden for me to use and the balcony just got redone this spring - with white tiles. I paint my minis at my desk and use a few layers of newspaper to protect it. Works great - as long as I use brushes, that is. I can't be the only one with a working space like this. So I am curious: How and where do you spray paint your minis? How do you protect walls and floor from the paint? I am especially interested to hear from all of you without a hobby room or a garden. Thank you for your ideas!
One benefit of our unplanned and sudden move is that we will finally have a hobby room. The first few displays were moved over first: Then came a lot more of the mess: Shelves have been set up, and a folding table arrived from Amazon: An older end table has been drafted as a paint and build station: Once it's finished up, I'll have to take shots of the whole set-up, but there's still a bit left to go.
Ok so it's really my fiancee's hobby room but she doesn't have an account on here yet and I built it so... New vinyl tile floor and a fresh coat of paint. Walls are just primer white so she can do whatever she wants. Kitchen was originally the back of the house and then they added on this room. The had just covered up the brick so the wall in between was about 12 inches thick. She wanted an accent wall so I knocked off the sheetrock. There was a hole where the window was but it's sheetrock on the kitchen side so it became shelving. Let there be light! Flood lights are awesome. Go for LED bulbs though. Halogens make it hot quick. She let me put my paint bench back in so we can be together when doing "clean" hobbies (I have a metal and woodworking shop out in the garage) Furniture!!! The table is a wallpaper hanger's table so it is standing work height for her. (5'4") Home made PVC pipe storage racks. See how I did it here : http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72155-pvc-storage-for-craft-paints/ [ She likes to sort by color. The cleanest my bench has ever been (and probably will be)
