So take one chinese takeaway box, put in the sponge from a miniature box and lay some normal baking paper from the kitchen over the top. Add enough water to just soak the sponge and, well, that's pretty much it!!!
And the result . . .
I mean, wow, the paint just stays wet. It doesn't dry out!!! You put a normal amount of paint down, get the consistency you want and it stays that way. That has got to be fucking witchcraft. I tried out some Vallejo Middlestone on some German Pioneers. Middlestone takes two or three coats over black to get an even coverage and, until now, was a real pain. This time I painted the first layer, waited five minutes, painted the second layer, waited another five minutes, washed some ink on, waited again, reapplyed the Middlestone, waited again, mixed a lighter shade and applied that - ALL USING THE ORIGINAL BLOB OF PAINT!!!
What do we also burn? MORE WITCHES!!!
A perfect example of the difference between knowledge and experience! The next step I think I'll try is layering and blending on something larger. Maybe something I've never been comfortable painting. . .
