Sounds awesome Con, post pictures here so we can check out your work :)!

Btw Jamus I highly recommend you look up how to make a wet palette. You just need glad tupperware, a paper towel, and some parchment paper. It will keep your paints wet much longer, meaning you won't have to keep thinning them or adding more paint because your paint dried out.

Here's a good how-to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96mjmqWTPfM

Ok last vid, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfNS8RImpw4

Watch that just to understand paint consistency. I struggled with that for a good while when I started. That's the best video I've seen.

So I bought a piece of plywood, paint and some trim. Going to make a painting surface for my cardtable.

I also ordered the starter set of Vajello paints on amazon along with Mice and Mystics.

Only thing left I can think of is lighting.

Lots of fur in Mice and Mystics. Check out how to dry brush. It's a pretty easy technique and a good way to paint raised surfaces like fur or chainmail.

Looks good Con!

Iíll take photos but basically Iím trying to make a painting surface that goes on top a table that both I can use for miniatures and my kids can use to paint whatever rather than getting paint all over my dining room table.
