Hi there Persons! I just had a chance to listen to the episode and thanks for the kind words :)

I'm glad you finally got a chance to try out the liner - I'm hoping as you play with it you start to find new ways to work with the product. You're right about the brown vs. gray - I have all three that they make (brown, gray and blue) and I honestly find the brown to be the most useful as I like warm shadows. I've used the blue for some models here and there but I don't think I've ever used the gray since the first few times I tried it.

Something to play with - try using the liner with different amounts of water; the behavior of the product changes as you water it down. When you get it to a more water than liner mix it starts to be very useable as a painted shadow as well as a liner. Even when doing pure lining, I always water it down a little bit because right out of the bottle it's REALLY intense.

I also find that it makes a nice 'ink' to write or trace patterns with when doing the base for scrollwork or lettering.

It's a neat product and behaves in ways that no other 'paint' I've worked with does, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Enjoy!

Scott

Quick question on the mold product that was talked about - is this it?

Definitely been thinking about trying this out at some point and was about to buy some new series 7 brushes from Dick Blick so if this is the stuff I might add it to my order. :)
