Dick Blick Art Materials Unboxing: Small Supply Haul

I needed some silicone and resin for my new project as well as re-stock some supplies. So it was time for a small Dickblick.com order. This is my first order in a LONG time! I have to stay away because I don’t have any self control when it comes to art supplies and I am so tapped out financially right now! Even though you can see how I go a little overboard on the new pastels, 0_o I was still good, I swear! Only ordered things I NEEDED for a change lol!

Think Geek Nickelodeon Unboxing! (Funko Pop!, Lounge pants, Stationary & more!)

The new Rocko’s Modern Life Funko Pop! Figurines were released recently and I just HAD to have them! This was my absolute favorite cartoon growing up and there really wasn’t much product out for it back in it’s day. So any chance I get to snag some awesome Rocko Memorabilia, I take! I was very tempted by Norbert and Dagget from Angry Beavers (another childhood favorite) but I was good and just added those to my wishlist for now >.>

I first found out about these in October when on my annual Christmas shopping spree with My mother and sister in law. They were going to start preorders soon. Fast forward to today when I spied in a Think Geek email newsletter that they were available! Yup…had to have it! So I off I went to the website.

Now, me, being me, I of course have no self control when I see so many other awesome Nickelodeon products —exclusives and on sale to boot!—yea…as per usual..spent way too much money for no reason. But hey, I hit the free shipping limit so…woo!  I did notice that Amazon had Rocko for about $2 less than think geek but there was the other stuff I wanted so I just stuck with TG. I

So I hope you enjoy this unboxing video. Sadly one item (the My Little Pony Classic mystery box was out of stock and canceled out of the order…boo 😦 But everything else should be here. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/6BmsxC5GI9M

2017 Maggie Bennett Monthly Micro Mini Resin Subscription Preview & Review

I can’t believe it’s been 2 years of this subscription already! That’s nuts! The best part is, it’s not always necessarily only 12 + a bonus each year. There are sometimes two models in a month!  Here’s a look at all of this year’s models that were included in Maggie Bennett’s Monthly Micro Subscription of 2017.

If you’re thinking about getting in on these, don’t delay. She has just set a cap on the number of subscriptions. These have been so popular that there is only so much she can keep up with which is why she has to set this cap at 200. I believe there are only about 40 more subs available so be sure to hop on the train if it’s something you’ve been waiting for.

To review the models in the year 2016 as well as narrative of what this program is and how it works, check out this video as well.

Model Horse Painting Supplies: Brush On Sealers Comparisons & Review

What better to follow a bunch of spray sealers than brush-on ones! You can use these to brush on your models as a final sealant or only use for touchups and details as well as run most of these through an airbrush if it has the desired finish you like.

Like my spray sealer video, I also show swatches of each finish and compare them together along with my little review of how I like them and what I use them for. Links to all products below. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/y2iglGI9jdg
