Uggh, I hate hobby-block. I want to go and paint and complete a project, and I’ve been able to scrape together 3-4 hours a week to work the 4-5 projects I have on the hobby desk, but it feels like things are moving at a snails pace One of those things that are holding me back, besides not finding enough time, it the frightful condition of my brushes. Over the last 2 years or so, I’ve taken the approach that I’d rather buy cheap brushes as I’ve never been able to keep good ones in great shape. Being unemployed for much of last year only reenforced that feeling.
For a while now I’ve been eying some better brushes, so much so that the wife was tired of me taking about them and told me to just buy them! Well you, my fellow hobbyists, know that when you get the green light from SWMBO, you don’t pause! Today the mailman dropped these on the doorstep:
I have two other Army Painter brushes, the first came with the Mega Paint set I purchased 6 years ago when I decided to get back into the hobby. That brush is still in my “Jar-o-Brushes”, but it’s only used for washes and broad base-coating, as the bristles won’t hold a fine point anymore.
So here’s to a hopeful to something new and shiny kicking my but into gear!
