    I just finished my first step-by-step video tutorial on airbrushing skulls. Check it out guys and let me know if you like it or found it helpful.

    Nice work Robbie. Good to see a different technique. The camera detail was good. I would habve liked some more paint detail earlier on but you gave us all we needed to know. I look forward to seeing some more videos. Excellent work

    Cool Robbie. I like how you mention both uro and water based paints, and wearing a mask. I think a newbie would want to know what reduction and air you were using. Its what I always wanted to know any way.

    I love claybord, and working from a black base sometimes. I asked Ampersand if they would consider making a black version (or as dark as poss) of claybord, but they replied try putting some intercoat over their scratchboard. I guess that means no lol.

    The skull looks great.

    Good video. For some odd reason I thought you were Dutch. Your voice sounds like the guy in the intro to the A-Team TV series.

    Great tips about the types of paint and how to reduce. I struggled with that for a long time.
