Chop chop!

Bonjour,


 Just a quick snap of the axe for you. Not had much luck taking pics of it the metal is reflective and so hard too photograph. It didnt quite turn out the way i wanted  but its not bad, plus the wife kept complaing the house was cold so she put the heating on full power and the paint was drying way too fast to work with.

Im Starting the base next ,need to make some icicles as its going to be a snow base and i want to have icicles hanging from the overhanging stones at the front.
The next pics will probably be of the finished mini so that will be up next week for yall to see.
More soon, keep up the good work.

nice...

use a wet pallette, grease-proof paper on wet tissue/kitchen towel - pain will never dry if you keep the tissue wet

i do mike. ive been using a wet pallette for a few years now but i dont mix metalic colours in there as they contaminate and ruin the other paints. i just mix them on a normal plastic pallette. it was very hot in the house that didnt help. bd
