In the midst of packing and spending cash on house stuff, I was able to swing the money for the Water Slide Decal paper I need for Kickstarter Sophie. I've always liked using decals on minis and sometimes it seems like the best way to go for details. Especially if you need something to look "just right". Plus, my ultra fine brushing skills are lacking, and I don't think I'd be able to pull off what I have in mind by hand anyway.
I need to rework how I have my mini painting gear packed anyway, so I might pull her out and get to work assembling the pieces. I still have a month or so until I'm moving anyway and have been wanting to get work started on her as soon as possible.
At this point, I think I'm going to look in my boxes for some sacrificial test minis to test run a few techniques on. Both with the decals, and with the metallic paint process.
