Much to do here.. And then I have been spending 3 weeks failing miserably at doing some... *HOMEMADE PHOTOETCHING* Indeed the big Canet gun i have been building was standing on some holed floor, some circular piece of metal holed everywhere -something i would have no chance realizing by hand. Even a great modeler I know who holed his floor with a Dremel tool failed at doing something perfect, so think about me with my 2 left hands..
Please visit my new website
I have a new website at www.distant-shores.com its aim is to gather all the nature centered websites I have been doing those past few months,
This is a bit lame, but I need to change the server of this site which is so slooow, and also to reactivate cdiorama.com
that's one of those good moments in a year when i start a new diorama!
of course A month in the garden shed didn't do much good to the dio -plenty of dust here and there, fingerprints on the resin when I trimmed the bottom etc. i will have to need at least one day of work to get it back together..
And then I started a new diorama too!
Products heads up
I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.
It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)
The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices
That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
