    Go with the flow.

    Hi Aliengod3,

    The only tips I can think of (which you\'re probably already aware of) are to water your paints down a little with good clean water, use a good quality kolinsky sable brush and use...

    I had no idea that was the situation. Sorry Redgreen 12! I didn\'t mean to give you a hard time. And in response to your question, I agree with your standpoint that we don\'t get carried away...
  192. Say what?

    I\'m not too clear on what you\'re trying to say here?? Reading your post is like trying to decipher meaning from ancient hieroglyphics. I\'m yet to see any minis that are erotic. As in, arousing...

    Daily painting session.

    Try to paint everyday. This way your skills will naturally improve to the point of basically mastering all the rudiment techniques. Blending with acrylic paints just takes practice and will come...

    Controversial topic.

    Being pretty versed in the paintage of NMM, TM\'s (true metals) and now SE-NMM (which I\'m doing on my latest mini) I thought I might share my thoughts on this topic.

    Colours? I like \'em all, and don\'t have any problems with certain colours. Maybe it\'s a mental thing. As in, you think that you have trouble with some certain colour so it therefore gives you...
