Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.
This is Reaper's magnificent 50212 "Incredible Woman," sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
She's a great figure that can be painted up like a lot of (tall - she's a big one) women superheroes. Wonder Woman is on my wish list, and maybe Captain Marvel one day.
This version is Marvel's She-Hulk from her classic days as one of the Fantastic Four, replacing Ben Grimm for a time.
As a materials and techniques note, I didn't use any green or blue pigments in her skin. It's all mixed from yellow and black. This was partly to prove a point and is kind of central in the art video I posted on YouTube last week: Yellow and Black Make Green.
Official WOOF's cry for help..
Lately I've been using several water effects on larger pieces.
This worked quite well, but I still had the problem of the stuff leaking.
Now I want to create a water effect portion on a larger oval or round base.
A mini will sit on a rock and there will be water around it with some marine life in it.
Now my main problem here is, how to seal that base so I can pour resin without leaking?
What do you use to prevent it?
Is there some material I can buy/use to enclose a round/oval base to do this?
I own several types of water effects, that's not the issue.
The issue is preventing leakage so it won't ruin the base in the end.
Anyone has experience with this?
