Vallejo Paints for Minimates

Review: Vallejo Paints

I have been using Citadel paints regularly for the last 4 years or so. A few months ago I had a friend recommend Vallejo paints to me. I hadn’t heard of this brand before, so I checked into it, and … I picked up a starter set of 12 colors, and I have been using them on all of my recent Minimate customs. The Vallejo paints are a different experience than Citadel, and both paints have their pros and cons.

And in this corner, The Clay Extruder!

A few weeks ago I had half an hour to kill at my local craft store, so I started wandering around the store, aisle by aisle. Usually I am looking for new materials to use in dioramas, but since I currently have everything I need for my new dioramas (more info coming soon!), I thought I would explore some new customizing tools. In the clay aisle, I came across what looked like a solid metal syringe (pictured above). It’s called a clay extruder, and it’s main function is to (surprise!) extrude clay.
