A solution

Posted by Konrad on 19 Jul 2019, 13:41

You know the problem.
You want to paint many figures at the same time.
But how do you hold onto them?
Where do you put them?

For little money, I bought these cable clamps.

Image

I professionally produce windows and doors and much more from aluminum profiles.

Image

With a computerized machining center, I made a lot of holes in the profile.

Image

And with the clamps you can now hold a lot of figs and paint. :-D

If someone has that or something similar at home, please don't tell me. :oops:

Hi and thank you for sharing.

As I personnel prime my figs with airbrush and do all in block painting, I use wood stick as below. I found it easier to manipulate. Besides I try to put together the similar figs so I maximise my paintings in a same gesture.

When I painted my Roman cohort, I stuck all the figures on the lids of milk cartons.
But I was not really happy with this solution.
It takes too much space.

:coffee: I remember just using my fingers and thumb to hold the platforms.
:mrgreen: He still does at times.
:cowboy: Ya! But as he began to use a large four inch brush,
:sst: his left hand turned black,then red white and blue.

:mrgreen: i guess we have all achieved that end?

:coffee: ideas are for playing around with,
but i must admit i tend to have far to many of them
in my unfolding day`s of a mere boy at creative play. Have fun.BB
