Well its happened again. Bloody AP DIP. The problem is that its in a little tin, and it constantly dries up, a bit of a pain considering it costs about £20.00 a go. So I have tried hammering the lid back on, storing he tin upside down, no good, still ends up really thick with a hard skin on it.
So I bought a big glass Jar, with a steel screw on lid. I put the dip in that, thinking it might work. I thought wrong. It still has a thick skin and I cant get the bloody lid off. It has welded in place, ive tried everything from soaking in terps, chipping away with a Stanley knife, I even had a go with a hack saw. Thoroughly pissed off with it.
So, im going to get a drill, make a hole in the top and put it in a golden syrup tin....once its gone im never buying it again.
I need an alternative quick shade method, that doesnt involve arseing about mixing floor polish and obscure inks etc.... Im thinking i'll base paint the figures, then gloss varnish, then ink, then matt varnish. Ive heard this works, as the gloss helps the ink run into all the creases etc and it doesnt sit on the flat areas?
Anyone got any ideas?
