No painting whatsoever.

OK. So I had a goal, a plan, a thing to do. It was simple really. Just paint the seether. Well I failed miserably. It's not even primed yet. Worse that that, the poor brute has taken some battle damage as it spikes keep getting knocked off thanks to my foam not being deep enough. 

One positive note is that I watched P3's Core painting guide yesterday. It was informative. Sadly nothing that I didn't know before. I digress, I admit that my washes had been drying all crazy on me, according to the video it's because of the tap water. They recommend their mixing medium. I used to wash windows for a living and I know that purified water drys real nice and spot free. I wonder if that's essentially what their mixing medium is. I'll have to try it. 

I was going to get some painting done but now that my summer job has kicked in it'll have to wait for another day. Maybe, just maybe by this Wednesday I'll have something to show.



  1. mmm...I figure purified water will have the same effect, as its the surface tension of water causing funky drying marks. I use a 50/50 mix of purified water and future floor wax to thin my washes. Works ok if you matte the model at the end or want a glossy look. Mixing medium and water should do the same for your drying issue.

  2. Dont forget to tag your posts buddy for the IABN :-)

  3. Yeah, I'm going to have to break down and buy some mixing medium. That's all there is to it.

  4. I have had a 1/2 fnished Seether on my painting desk for almost 3 years. Mk2 just might be the incentive I need to finish the bloody thing.
