Yeah, when you have 100+ paints several do tend to be forgotten.  :rolleyes:

 

I have the same problem on occasion, and I only have 75 so far.  I bet it will be even more pronounced once I double such...

I have unopened paint I haven't even seen in almost 15 years.

Oh, one more thing to add!

 

You ever see the (spoiler alert for 25 year old show, I guess) the episode of DS9 where O'Brien goes to virtual jail, and because of food shortages there when he comes back out and he's eating dinner with Keiko he starts taking food off his plate to save for later as a hedge against starvation?  Even though the replicator will provide all he could want?

 

I'm like that with brushes.  The absolute horror of running out at the worst time in 2016/2017 over the holidays and waiting forever for new arrivals, forced to work with my tattered and miserable poofy weasels, has made me completely paranoid about brushes.  So even though my new Ro & Co are magnificent and long-lived, I'm afraid to use them in case I run out.  So what I'm doing is riding brushes out until the most bitter end, even when a fresh brush is what I need to do the job. 

 

So I ordered a fresh supply, which is large enough that it should make me less scared of using them.  I literally ordered double what I thought I needed so I can carve off some to store away like squirrel nuts.  You know, in case I get sent back to virtual brush jail.

Yup, I rotate my brush usage.  And have live 5-6 R&Co, 2-3 Raphael, 2-3 W&N just so I won't run out.  I dip the end in primer so I know which is being relegated to primer duty so I don't accidentally use primer on my current good brush.

Thanks, guys! ^_^

I’m a lot happier with him now that I’m not painting him anymore. My brain just was not cooperating with me. 

I don’t think the shield would have turned out as well as it did had you not put in my head that the blank quarters could be boring, @Chaoswolf and who would've thought that even my cynical statements forcing myself to think positively would actually work out? :lol:

      Hello forum family, wanna share with you my last mini painted (I'm so lazy in this time of the year...).
      I have two figure of Luwin, so I decided to paint it again, this time in more natural colors. 
      It took me a good 10 hours to place the OSL, as he is plenty of details and it was no easy to figure out where to place the shadows, but anyway I'm pretty happy of the result :)



      Hope you'll like him too. As always every C&C is more than welcome, help me see what I can't see :)
      Thanks for watching

      Hello forum family, wanna show you my last work: Sister Hazel.
      Was aiming to a realistic look,  she came out cartoonish  (as always)...
      Had some problems painting the bottles and had to paint it twice cause at first I've inverted the shadows and it looked like Windows XP desktop image -.-
      Still no good, but at least it look like bottles  Same problem with the googles.
      I'm happy with the blood splat and the dirty look, that's probably the only part I'm happy with.
      Anyway:



      Every advise is suuuuper welcome (please!)

      Mat and Pat of the City Guard. Or whatever Reaper calls these minis. So far the only names I have for them is Bones 4 Core set #14 and #15.
      STOP PRESS: Upon actually checking the internets, it seems that they are already available cast in metal, and called "City Guard (2)". A no brainer, really. They are quite obviously just that.
       

      I think I should have done the edging on the lower parts of the tabards differently, the blacklining did not turn out well at all. Looks better unmagnified IRL though.

      So I have finally painted my first Bones Black figures, Juliana the Herbalist and it really was a very nice experience, far better than painting the normal Bones white squishy material. The detail is far crisper and cleaner and this figure was just really nice, not really a warrior or adventurer running around with sword or staff, just hanging out in her garden.  Those two little balls on her sides I thought originally were hedgehogs, but I think they must have just been pine cones.
      Anyway, enjoy!
