What do you used to get the models to stay on the nails and toothpicks so you can do the detailing? :sherman:

Welcome to the Underground! If you are into painting and modeling your in the right place. :D

Usually a dab of hobby cement is all that is required to attach figures to a suitable base for painting. When your finished painting, clear coat as you normally would and once dry just snap the figure from the nail/toothpick and your done. Take a small block of wood and drill holes the approximate diameter of the nail/toothpick and insert your figures on the bases into it for drying and storage.

:bowty:Ober has it correct. I use just a very small drop of super glue to hold my figures to nails which gives me something to hold when painting. I also use a block of balsa wood to set the nails in when I'm painting. This is from the PSCo. Russian Heavy Weapons set which I'm currently working on. It's a 120mm Mortar and crew.

To imitate Ober - Maybe I'll just send you mine. But I'd like to see that fine detail explained, maybe the skin painting technique....

Maybe others would like to see three tone camo - I'd like to see that too.

But the biggest problem would be -- I don't think there would be as much fun as that last class - wait a minute - was that a class or comedy central - the lessons were real right.................

I guess the only difference between Ober, Loco and myself is how I set them on the side - bit of clay:

A figure painting tutorial sound cool. Something that describes base painting and ink washing as well as the thing everyone want to know, how to paint in such detail. I know Loco has been experimenting with different types of bases for figures .... so info on bases would be helpful.

:bowty: Sounds like a figure painting class will be in order. I'll start later this week with a new thread for this and show some of the brushes and other items needed for this and give anybody interested a chance to get ready. See you all in class soon. :whip:
