Hey guys thanks everyone!

 

@Citrine, yes indeed, silicone pot holder type of thing. You've already ordered one so hope it works for you. I really like mine. Best advice is to clean it before the paint dries in it. Just run it to the sink when you're done painting. If the paint dries in the wells overnight or something, pour a little melty beeswax into the wells and let it harden for a minute or two. Then pull the beeswax out. Paint comes clean out with the wax.

 

Guys those are great tips for the parchment paper. I soak mine. Just like ' official'palette paper that you buy from art supply stores. A little soaking helps "open up" the paper for use. Pinning is a good idea too, CS, never thought of that.

 

Alright, I'm doing some priming work this morning on another project then once that's done it has to cure up so I can set up the camera and shoot some video for this. Probably a video tonight or tomorrow am. I'll probably finish this guy today and post videos of painting his horns and his base then call it done and move on to the next Reaper mini!

I have to give that credit to Aaron Lovejoy. I was watching someones youtube videos of Aaron teaching a painting class, and he placed parchment paper in his full wet palette and set a paint bottle on each corner until the paper had reached saturation without letting water pool on top by overflowing the paper.

Hey cool Sean, they're pretty useful for quick blends for sure. Remember the cleaning tip I mentioned about pouring some kind of meltable sticky wax into the wells if the paint dries in them. You can use beeswax or in a pinch those little red wax coatings from baby bel cheeses. Save the red wax coatings, wash them in soap and melt them down somehow. I have a wax melter pot but you can use a double boiler. Sounds like a lot of trouble but it's not. I'll make a video of the care and maintenance of these things, took me awhile to figure out how to complete clean them if you get lazy and let the paint dry in them.

 

I have the video of painting the horns filmed, and will be rendering it over night and uploading in the morning tomorrow.

What is this "quick" thing you speak of?

 

 

Well quick being a very relative word heh, especially for my slow-painting self. You can set up your color blends in advance in each well of the palette with a lot of control as to the changes in color, so you can quickly just get your blend worked up by having your colors accessible like that. Let's say for example that you want just a little piece of a mini painted, like a satchel. You set up your blend of colors in the wells of the palette from dark to light, then pull from those and paint on the mini. Since there's a ton of little wells, you can always have a few open and ready for "quick" work like that. It's handy for the little details that you don't want to prep a wet palette for. Just put paint in the little wells and go to town. When done, run it under the sink, that sort of idea. I keep a couple of the things around, very handy.
