The kids are painting well

I’ve been painting a fair bit with the kids lately. Here is a bunch of long out-of-print Harlequin Nightlings we’ve been painting. Once they’re done, it’s hard for me to tell which ones I’ve painted and which they have. As I’ve mentioned, we’ve used what I call the Velas Technique: stain painting over white primer, followed by a dip. It’s very forgiving to beginning painters, and the GW Devlin Mud wash makes a non-toxic, water clean up dip that even the kids can apply. We still have several Nightlings to paint, although right now my son and I are painting Primaeval Designs Woolly Mammoths and Neanderthals. He’s very much into prehistory, which is largely why I purchased them, and has repeatedly begged to paint for free, but I force him to take wages! “Son, if somebody offers you money to do something you really want to do, you say YES!”

    No truer advice has a father ever passed on to his son…

    Those definitely look very nice. I rerally like the cavalry – very Wizards-esque
