    I completely understand how you feel! I want one of each, but I'm pretty sure the BF would kill me dead if I did that. I'm contenting myself with Trailblazer.

    Thank you! I'm so glad you like her!I wish that I had seen this comment earlier or gotten an alert about it =) Still feeling a bit lacking in the motivation department, but I hope the SM Swap can cure it for both of us!

    Sorry to hear that you're in an artistic slump. I've been in and out of the slump myself. I have a bunch of projects that need to be started and finished. Your work is beautiful. I have the 2012 Spring Fling SM you did and I love it! Sending you a jug of motivation and hope you can get back into your projects soon!

    Krylon Flat white failed me and gummed up my horses good despite five minutes of shaking and good temperature/humidity. SIGH. I just want to paint =/ I wonder if preppers do bulk discounts...

    Tried again today on a test model uusing the Krylon the company sent me in return for the gritty primer. Same thing happened. It must be my technique, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong! I've never had this problem before =/ Maybe location is the issue? I am spraying in my backyard of my mother's house, where I have never primed a horse before. I have no idea but it is so frustrating!

So, I took the cans outside, laid them on their sides and let the sun heat up the primer. Then I shook the cans until that little ball was rolling all the way around the bottom of the cans. I sprayed out the first few squirts to get all the solids out of the tube, then tested the spray on a dummy model. Problem solved. So, now I am going to lay my cans of primer on their sides instead of standing them upright. This will make the agitating problem easier also. HTH
    Thank you for that tip! I'll have to try it!

    Yes, it is sandable primer. I am used to sanding the inevitable little bumps, but this stuff looks like sandpaper and it is everywhere. I have tried low grit sanding and then buffing, but I can't reach every little crevice. Its really annoying, especially since I use pastels and need a smooth surface.
