Learning how to paint OSL is kicking me in the butt! :-x
Checking in, making sure that some of my ducks are in a row. And of course some of them have wandered off into the unknown places. Still ever so slowly working on things. I cleaned up and cleared out most of my junk that is my crafting table/area. Found some really, really old things that are not even open. I have no idea how that happened. They survived the house fire b/c the plastic is still discolored from soot and the box is a little crispy on one corner. It's the Black Dragon from AD&D. I knew I had one some where. Glad I was able to find it finally. Still unopened. Scary stuff when you find things and your mind goes to places you don't want to remember. :saddummy:

Trying to figure out some new techniques. Well, they are new to me. As in wet palettes and OSL (Object Source Lighting). I am not a master by any means. Also I am always willing to learn new stuff. So I am in a really bad learning curve of my own. It will take time, and I will post what I can if I remember to take a picture. My whacky week is making everything go "Whaaaat?"

I put my stitching away, no that doesn't mean I have given up on all of it. It is on hold until the hand specialist doctor can tell me what is going on with my right hand of pain. Also he is angry with me for falling down the stairs (back in May), mainly upset that it is still hurting. Doesn't help that I keep injuring it over and over again by not taking it easy. Left turns still hurt, and if I step on uneven ground that hurts worse. 
:tears: Gotta stop sitting around, I have stuff to do!

Reaper mini known as the Spider Queen paint P3

I made the cracks of her throne silver, kind of like webbing. Though I have more layers to add, it's been slow going. Hoping to have her done in an week.

I have repainted this little mini like way too many times. Love it. I really do love this little figure. This is a very very rough paint. Trying different colors of dullness with a splash of come hither. Not really sure I am liking the boots. I know I can make them any color, but they kinda don't go well with the dull red cushion. I will have to find another color for those boots. Oh well. It's not perfect but I like it. Soon she will be complete. And yes the back of her throne is a bright green, the reason why is b/c I am going to try to make it a glowing yellow green. So progress!

Went to Scalefest with my brother, sister and Dad. Had a great time. Sadly, I had nothing ready for the contest so I did not enter. Yet, I managed to pick up four more models (2 Macross VF), and two resin garage kits (Horus from Stargate and Eve 1 from NGE). Not sure if or when I will put those together and paint them. Yes, I just added to my already huge mountain of things to work on.

Since I am feeling so much better I am going to actually start working on my minis again. Spent most of the day cleaning up, removing tags, smoothing out sharp edges of some minis I just found. Yep, more. Most of these are so damaged by the house fire (years and years ago) that I am not sure any amount of painting, shading, highlighting will help it. I have another 100+ to clean up before I can try to paint any of them. I may have to take some pics and post them so you can see the sheer amount I actually have. On top of that I bought another T'Char dragon figure. Even though the figure is "new" in box, it has issues. Some of the hair that runs down the spine snapped off right out of the box. Just my luck. It's really thin too so I am not sure I will be able to put it back in the spot it came off of.

I am a Nerd/Geek and a huge gamer. I love most things that are sci-fi, fantasy and fiction. I am pretty old, and married. Slightly on the oddball/crazy side, but I am never boring. I tend to be very much a birdbrain when it comes to crafts and art. Working on one thing, something else will pop into my head forcing me to stop and go do that other thing or I will go insane. I used to make rich and interesting worlds, characters (the good, the bad) for my hubby to use in our D&D campaigns. Though we stopped playing long ago, I have been trying to write a little about the adventures before they completely leave my head, making room for newer things. Still need to edit and work on those. I work pretty hard on concepts but for what ever reason when I work on them the ideas fall apart and are either forgotten or they stumble out as a giant steaming pile and I am at a lost on how to get it right like it was in my head. As hairbrained as I am, I do manage to once in a while pull off some amazing stuff. But you'll have to stick around to see it when it happens.
