Paint Club @ Reaper

Recommended Posts

Hey, all!

 

I'm a local-ish guy (down in Addison) wondering about the free Reaper Paint Club on Saturdays from 12-4. I have a few questions for all the veterans:

 

1) I'm an uber-n00b at painting. Though I hear all levels are welcome, will I be too out of place if I come?

2) I should have all the materials I need, but is there anything I SHOULD'NT bring that will already be there?

3) About how many people show up on any given weekend?

 

Thanks in advance for your answers!

I have been told I should go since I live in Allen but getting away for hours on a weekend makes the daughter unhappy.  Instead I should pull out the paints during the day and just let her paint Cthulhu like she has been asking to do for a couple months now. :)

 

Maybe one day I will go up there when he cousin is visiting and I will be missed a little less.

Let me know if you ever decide to go. I'd be happy to have another first timer along.

You do the same. Easier to talk myself into going if someone asks me. Then just need to convince wife and daughter that it is a good thing. :)

<I've been 3 or 4 times now and I am a total noob. everyone at paint club is really cool and very welcoming to everyone. you should come to paint club and join in the fun. They have paint you can use, water cups, some pallets. But you will need some brushes I believe. I usually bring everything I can in case there is something I need that is not available. Come join the fun! It's a great way to learn and have fun!

Awesome, I think I will. Do most people arrive at noon and stay all the way until 4?

2) No need to bring paint or water...

3) I have no recent info...

It varies wildly.  Some weeks we get 2-3 people, others we get 20.  

 

There is no reason to fear being new - every Paint Club attendee was there for the first time once!

Paint Club Rules:

 

First - Don't Not Talk About Paint Club.

 

Second - Don't Not Talk About Paint Club.

 

Third - If someone says they are overwhelmed with information, let them work on what they already are practicing. Also, if you are overwhelmed, speak up.

 

Fourth - The more painters the better.

 

Fifth - One piece of advice at a time. One mini at a time.

 

Sixth - Shirt and shoes are probably required by your FLGS.

 

Seventh - Everyone progresses at a different pace and has a different end goal in mind.

 

Eighth - If this is your first time, then you have to paint.

Ooo, what's the purpose of this rule? And is your list (minus 1 and 2 - hehe) official?

I made the list up on the fly based on a Google search of the Fight Club rules.

      Here is a lizard man I painted recently.  I actually finished him a while ago but I didn't post him because there was someone else's posted that day that was much better than mine and I was embarrassed .  So here he is now.  I am quite happy with the color on his chest.  I didn't want him to have a straight yellow chest because that would look too contrasty and cartoony so I used some yellow in a glaze medium and put it on.  It was kind of chalky so I need to be looking at getting different yellow paint.  The close pics show the flaws and chalkiness but from a foot and a half away it looks amazing to me.  The underside of the tail is still straight yellow basecoat because I was getting lazy.  I am quite happy with him and please let me know what you think!

      Good morning guys! 
       
      Q: if buying one of the reaper core sets (108 bottle set), what's the main difference in them? 
       
      I'm looking into buying a complete paint set. I've been doing a ton of research and have settled on a reaper core set (i already own several reaper paints and love them).  I know that everyone suggests a blend of several companies based on which has the best,  e.g. yellow,  or metallics. I just want to make it simple, buy a set and build from there. 
       
      I'll mostly be painting 40k and privateer press models with some terrain and 3d prints mixed in (i have a cheapo set of acrylics from Michael's for large terrain and 3d prints).
       
      I've also considered the Vallejo Model set, and Army Painter Mega Set.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      A noobish question, should I thin down reaper washes? Or are they ready to use out of the dropper? 
      Sorry if this has been asked.

      About
      Cuttlefish Colors is a hobby acrylic paint line that we here at the studio have developed.  These paints work and blend very well with other major brands of hobby paint on the market right now, but at a much cheaper price tag.
      Why use Cuttlefish colors
      Beastclaw Raider painted using Cuttlefish Colors For years we used just about every other major brand of hobby paint out there, always looking for that perfect color, the smoothest paint and the most cost effective. 
       Lets face it, if you’re into tabletop war-gaming you know how expensive this hobby can be.  We were so tired of spending 5-6 dollars a bottle on paint, only to have them dry out with their flip top lids, the dropper styles were great but so difficult for us to get locally, and the consistency of the color varied greatly. 
      Deathguard Marine painted using Cuttlefish Colors So, ten years ago we began doing research on the properties of hobby paint, how it’s made and where we can get the materials to do this.  After hundreds of failed attempts to “make” our own paint and thousands of dollars spent on failed formula’s we finally found the one that worked the best.
      This formula gives you a smooth thin coat with good coverage and blends fantastically with other colors in the line, AS WELL AS other hobby paints on the market.  we began to experiment with different pigments and for the past 2 years have been painting miniatures with the paints we would mix up and bottle for ourselves.  
      It was about 6 months ago that our friends and local game group started asking about what colors we used and we told them, Well, We make our own.  Ever since that day people have been asking us "Can we buy some of your paint?"   After thinking about it and seeing if it was possible...well...here we are!  
      We are very excited to bring our line of hobby paints to everyone, and can't begin to thank you enough for checking us out and hopefully, just hopefully pledging!  
        Thanks from the bottom of our hearts,
      Cephalopod Studios

      I hear horror stories about people getting frozen bottles of paint. Is there any way to tell if the paint has been frozen prior to using it? I was concerned about this when I did my holiday paint order, but it was a little unseasonably warm the day they were delivered. What does frozen paint look like & is there a way to salvage it if it has been frozen?
