|You landed on boardwalk, sucker!|
Another thing that I had not thought of but should have is the finish of each paint- besides the colors themselves, a few of my paints have a very glossy finish, and the rest are pretty matte. I figure knowing what is what on the finish front is also pretty useful. Figuring this out is an unintended benefit of the project. Yay for unexpected results!
Now that I know what colors I have, there is a dilemma: I could paint medium gray over the old steel gray paint, not knowing how that is going to turn out, or I remove all of the paint and start again from scratch. If I start again from scratch, I'm going to need a good way to remove the paint. I know there are ways to do this, but the methods I know involve buying more supplies, and I'd rather accept that this is a first try and that it isn't going to be perfect.
So- time to get back to actually painting the figure. More soon.
Until next time,
