Water Palette

I’m often getting distracted when I’m painting kits. This results in paints getting dry and wasted (since I’m using acrylics, which dries fast).
Once I’ve been browsing net for reference pics and I’ve found this idea on someone else’s blog. It turns out you can buy such wet palette, but since I’m broke – I decided to make my own.
Here’s short comic about that.

Yes, I lol at my own handwriting.

New Gallery – WWII German Machine Gunner 1/16

Tamiya’s WWII German Machine Gunner (greatcoat) in 1/16 scale.
Figure is hand-painted, using Vallejo’s acrylics, Mr. Metal Color (stainless steel) and chalk pastels were used to achieve weathering effects.
Thanks to my Boyfriend, I can show you those amazing shots.


Enjoy.

New WIP – WWII German Machine Gunner 1/16

I’m building this one for my Father. We’ve seen this model few years back, but never had an opportunity to get it. Recently I’ve got it and made a surprise for my Dad. Now I only have to paint it. It’s Tamiya’s model and as you can imagine – it’s really well done, I didn’t have much work to do while assembling.
Here’s first part of WIP, where I start to work on gun, coat and I did base for this figure.

Enjoy.

New Gallery and WIP – SD Miku

I don’t have much to tell about this one. I tried my best, yet I can’t say I’m 100% satisfied with results. I’ve learnt a lot about airbrushing and found a lot of new reasons to hate it. And varnishes. I hate them so much.
Still I think it was worth it.
SD Miku from GK-Model.
It’s gift for my Friend.
Nice cast, didn’t require much work, fitting was really good – nice kit for beginners.
It’s (mostly) airbrushed with Vallejo Model Colour with addition of Daler-Rowney’s Interference Colours and Alclad2 Prismatic Sapphire.


Enjoy~!
