Advice, Comparisons and Tutorials

Postby OldFogey » Mon Aug 05, 2013 10:01 am

This is your first port of call for all queries involving paints, brushes, stripping, painting advice, photography, etc.

For the time being it's merely a pointer to two previous threads, at some stage I might dive in and compile a proper index.

Techniques - preparing, painting and stripping, general advice

Comparison - paints, brushes and equipment

Are there any guides for photographing your painted models, photo boxes and lighting for example?

I've been thinking of making one. I will need to try some of the free software out there though to see if I can make a tutorial that could be used by anybody since I actually do my own editing in photoshop. If I can get it to work then I'll try to make one this week.

Just had a quick look at your site and was blown away.

I never imagined so many colours etc for a single figure, looks like I have my work cut out and maybe I should stop buying new ones until I've finsihed the ones I have.

MANY thanks

Colin
