I sprayed my first Freya cat head with the Vallejo. It was used in the Mushroom Peddler's workshop so I have painted on resin with it as base and final seal. Now will be the test with ABS.

I didn't expect the lack of stench when I sprayed. Definitely not MSC or Model Masters.

I picked one of the grey cats. I plan to do something simple to start - perhaps a Russian Blue - so I have no patterning or massive body painting, just the head's highlights, shadows and detailing. But I won't be adverse to her turning into a fantasy cat if she asks.

I need to get this done so I can start working on my mother's Xmas present, her tuxedo cat. Still debating on using white or grey. Grey will be less full blushing to black but a bitch painting the grey paws white with pastel. I've considered taking the paws and back legs of a white to make it easier. Now I wish I had purchased more whites to scavenge. Well, now that I have my full Volks paint and pastel pallet it may be easier to cover grey with white. We shall see.

But first I need to clean up the area of my crochet stuff. My hands are finally getting better but I am going to wait a few more weeks until I tackle more yarn craft. Amigurumi needs tight stitches and doll hats are tiny. Both need my hands to be in tiptop shape to get back into it.

Doll stuff is accumulating around me again. Gotta look for a plastic storage bin sale again.

I also have to watch my time typing, doing it in small chunks.

death's door

I like Vallejo. It has more tooth them MSC, is cheaper and doesn't give me headaches.

And the can is larger.

I got sick this weekend so I didn't get anything done, even sleep.

Oh, but I bought another doll...
