Re: How do I....

Practice does help.

I did a video years ago of my first miniature. Seeing it versus where I am now in some of the later videos might give you some inspiration. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BexTN4BZub4

Re: What is this technique called?

Aloha! It might not be identical to what you see on the model, but try searching Google images for 2 different things: 1) Greek Key 2) Celtic Knotwork Essentially what you're looking for is just a repeating pattern that makes a larger pattern. If you want to do it on a mini, practice the design of p...

Re: I need better brushes...

So... in short... what can of brush should I buy if I want something that last more than 5 minis before it gets all bent out of shape? :( To answer the actual question from this post, my recommendation would be the Winsor and Newton Series 7 brushes (the actual series 7 line, NOT, I repeat, NOT!!! ...

Re: Nail Polish

I actually use nail polish quite a bit to simulate a shiny effect on water.

It does not melt plastic or destroy the paint at all. You should be fine.

Re: Lighting for your painting station

I tend to use 3 folding lamps manufactured by Tensor. They've got nice flourescent bulbs in them which show much truer colors than a standard lightbulb. You can find them at any good office supply store, or, if you want the more expensive version, you can find an Ottlite folding lamp for $70 or $80 ...

Re: Maximum Protection?

The display case is a good idea, however, space is a problem and I usually find odd spots to put them atop, like on top of my dresser on top of my fridge. If you're looking for a display, I'd suggest trying one of the Wall Mount cases from Displays2Go. You can find them here: http://www.displays2go...

Re: Fraying brushes

Why are synthetic brushes bad for painting minis? I have only synthetic brushes and I like them much better than my animal hair ones (don't know which animal really, it just says "100% natural hair" on the brush), which don't seem to hold a point at all. Synthetic brushes aren't necessarily "BAD", ...

Re: Fraying brushes

1) Those brushes look like Golden Taklon (nylon bristle) brushes. Unfortunately, they're going to fray no matter what. 2) With the amount of spread on those bristles, I have to ask...have you been using those brushes to drybrush? If so, BAD idea. Always use a different brush for drybrushing purposes...
