Back to the Brushes 202

After over twenty years service the faithful paint pot finally gives in and dries up.

Never been a colour to see extensive use however; always useful when painting armour and metallics in general.

Now to try Foundry 35C Spearpoint. How will it compare and will it last the next twenty years?

Cheers for now.

Twenty years is a long time for a pot of paint. I have a bunch of Poly S and Poly Scale that still see use after 20+ years.

I know how you feel. I laid to rest a skin tone, bronzed flesh I think (palest flesh colour ever) from the original citadel colour range (the round pots). Somewhere there are a few others that have been decanted into droppers. A sad day.

still got mine and still use it, only a bit left now. It is easily the best of all the silvers

Ancient! Lol! I had some bufferable Gunze Sangyo stuff a while back when I did large resin figures. I hadn't touch them in a few years and when I checked an almost brand new bottle had dried up. Alas, use them while you can. :)

I'm pretty sure they're not made in the UK anymore,I'm still ecking out a pot of elf flesh that I've had forever!
