Since you asked... Adding a little brush on sealer to white and light flesh tones helps keep them smooth when layering, they tend to get lumpy or chalky otherwise. Nice work on the robes and the basing!

... that might be something for me to do on my skin tones. Graininess is the bane of my figure-faces. What makes the sealer do that to the paint?

What do you mean by sealer? Varnish?

Whats the difference between the brush on sealer and like a gloss, matte, or satin finish?

 

 

The Sealer is a Matt finish.

There is also a Gloss Varnish in Reaper's arsenal.

 

I use spray sealers ( Amry painter Anti shine) too, but under certain circumstances ( cold, rainy) it can give a bad effect.

 

I use the brush on sealer a lot, also during paint jobs on larger models.

So I can handle a mini without rubbing paint off.

I haven't sealed or 'finished' any of my models because in all the videos I've watched the varnishes seem to detract. The I don't like the gloss look and the matte looks chalky. Is there a way to seal them without really changing how they look?

I use Testors DullCote on all my figures, and with very few exceptions, (some GW) I have never noticed a color change...

YMMV...

 

Nice work on this!

      Vatanis came in my  Paint & Take Home Survival Kit, and I started him off as part of the craft paint challenge, but it just wasn't working. 

       
       
       
      So he got set aside for a couple of months, until I saw Cicciopiu's magnificent rendition.  I leaned on it heavily for inspiration

      He has so, so many details.  I could put much more time into this, but I had reached a point where I had to stop.

      These two were mostly done a while ago (along with their buddy Darkrasp). It's just taken me a while to work up the courage to paint the scroll and spellbook and get them off my shelf of shame!

      Not a reaper mini, but i did use reaper paints for most of her! Very fun miniature to paint, she is really tiny, my skills aren't there yet to paint faces on her scale yet. Hope you enjoy

      Sartzanek, the mad archmage! Twisted like an iron pole struck by lightning. On another world, on another time, he says he was Blackcloack, the lord of an infinite dungeon. On sundays he is Zifnab and White Jenkins, the small aberration on his shoulder, secretly a dragon. For a while he liked to play games with adventurers and claimed his name was Penthos. 
      Who knows, really. He may just be an old lunatic. Or maybe a sorcerer like no other... you decide. At your own risk.

      I love painting these dice people! Painted the wizard to be an unpainted die, and the familiar as a die made of ivory (bone.) I now have these joining the gang, and only two left to paint. :D
