She looks stunning :wub:

 

I like the milky water.

But if it is not what you were going for, you might have a bad bottle.

Did you shake it?

 

I use Vallejo Still Water a lot and never had this problem.

So maybe you need another bottle?

I think it's just gotten a bit old, but I've never had much luck making water bases, at least this is a step up from the cracking I usually get.

The Still Water in a bottle is meant for shallow water.

There is also Water Effects, which is a paste, that one needs to be applied in layers and starts out white, dries clear and can be used for a little deeper water.

 

But for deep water you need resin/epoxy stuff, I have not yet tried that.

So that's where I've been going wrong for all these years!

Beautiful - love the deep rich colors against the browns. The birght colored flowers play off that too - great composition - I like the water effect, it looks like there is mist or fog

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      Hello guys,
       
      It's been a while since I posted a mini, as I've been sick, been on a business trip, and just generally busy, but here is a figure I just completed last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from "All Things Dark and Dangerous" back in the eighties:
       

       
      Upon retrospect I'm wondering if I should have given her eyebrows, don't know if without looks very unnatural?
       
      In any case, here's the "original" set of figures, with the delightful ladies that came in the original blister pack:
       

       
      Hope you enjoy!

      Presenting Remus Raducan, part of the Blood Wolf faction in Reapers Dreadmere setting.
       
      Struggled to find this guy that interesting to paint, and as a result he ended up a bit lacklustre.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Had a lot of fun painting this one, and as a bonus she turned out pretty decent too!

      Painted up the cart from Reaper's Bones 4 Dreadmere expansion, and did some modifications to it. First, I installed magnets into three base and the crate and barrel so they wouldn't fall off, and then created a bunch of cabbages because I'm a huge Avatar fan. But then, I needed a cabbage salesman, and so I did some modifications to a Bones 4 villager (head swap, added hat, modified the hand, etc) and painted him as a close approximation. Finally, just for fun, I threw in the halfling Kineticist that I painted up in Aang's colors a year or so ago...
