Back when I had more time, and when there were more magazines, I used to write articles whenever I could. Some where about the hobby itself, some about techniques. I figured that a good way to start my little blog would be to put up some of those articles. Sadly the magazine that published them is no longer around - Historical Miniature was the premier American magazine related to figures. Each copy was really top quality both in terms of content down to the paper it was printed on. It is missed.
So without further ado....
How to paint metallics
This was an article I did for HM explaining how I painted metallics without using metallic paints. Nowadays it's a pretty common practice in the hobby, and it comes from a few hundred years in the art world, but at the time it wans't something that was very common in the hobby....
The next subject up is one of my favorites.....ME! Just kidding, but it is an artist profile that also appeared in HM.
