Well if you remember I managed to order a couple of blues in error yesterday. I sent a nice email enquiring if they would be able to swap it out for any random colour. I mean the error was mine and they could have easily said no… tonight I got a nice email back…
Just updated your order. I have swapped it for 1 PAPYRUS DIP color
I think you will use it.
So a big thank you to Greenstuff World… a very happy chappy here in Shetland.
Unfortunately I wont be buying much paint for a bit of a while. Sadly my 11 year old VW Polo has decided that it is time for it to retire. 126,000 miles has taken its toll and tonight I had to go and look for something with a bit less on the clock. Gone are the days of a £500 car. The one we are looking at is £8100 and at 100k less on the clock is a bit better. It is however 7 years old this year.
So after a bit of a hiccup not being able to log in I managed to get my order in. I was trying to work out what twelve paints I had ordered… I couldn’t get my maths to work out either… turns out I ordered two of the blue. I will see if they can swap it out.
Well as promised I gave the five paints a go on the goats this evening and to be honest I am impressed straight off.
So as you can see, from the above they look really good and do what they are meant to. Interestingly the papyrus dip looks more skeletal than the skeleton brown.
Now I had one minor issue, and by minor I mean minor…
5 seconds later I had a hole.
Soo what are my first opinions…love these. The colours look good. Now as i said I got these at a reduced price. Tomorrow comes the big test to see whether I jump on a whole lot more.
That test is reactivation…I deliberately painted the whole miniature to see if it would cause issues with colour bleeds when I repaintthe bits that need a different colour… the two little goats will be a different colour tomorrow evening.
James got invited to try something different this evening…
He was dead chuffed getting second place after a joint shoot off for first.
