    If I can do it, I feel like anyone can do it. Sculpey doesn't air-dry, so you have unlimited working time. That REALLY helps.



    Thanks. :)

    Thank you! I should have an update on this, this weekend -- I've been slowly poking away at TMM on his armor, but I'm so slow that it's taken me almost a month to get to a point I'm ready to show...

    I'm embarrassed to say I totally forgot how to do that.

    However, I think I've become a better painter, at least. :D

  11. 1:4 Dwarf bust WIP (Huge images, I'm really sorry. :( )

    This is my first attempt at ever sculpting ANYTHING. I'm using Super Sculpey and didn't expect things to turn out so good, so I didn't think about posting here until I got to the point of paint.

    Probably 28mm total height. They're Reaper, which is usually 25mm, but they're also chibi so it's tough to tell.

    Thank you. :)

    Thanks. I've lurked around here for almost as long as you've been here, but rarely post. I've only been taking this stuff seriously for about a year, though.

    I always do -- partially because I tend to use oils over an airbrushed base coat, and partially because I had issues with oil washes eating my acrylics when I tried to clean them up. Whether it's...

    Skin-hairline-hair transition

    I'm about to tackle my first larger-scale model (it's not REALLY larger scale -- it's a Storm Giant from Reaper, so it's colossal at 25mm), and one thing that I've never been able to get right is the...

    Yes, they are. I'm not a wine drinker, so I don't come into corks all that often. Hobby Lobby (Love 'em or hate 'em, they're the closest craft store to my house AND they carry Vallejo Model paints)...

    I like the idea of oil washes, but I often see them overused and the whole model ends up looking like it was dipped in floor wax. "Great basecoat; one heavy, single color, wash; decent highlights."

    Shading: Wash alternatives?
