    My tribute to the late great actor Ian Holm, that sadly passed away in June. I started on this earlier, but got side tracked with life and work.

    Good on the right surface. I sligtly sand my yupo with 320 grit sandpaper to give it a very mild tooth so that I can do light erasing instead of taking it 100% down to the support with one swipe. Using 3012 reducer the open time is acceptable, and I can re-open the paint by spraying over it with reducer and waiting 10 seconds. That works up to a day later. By day two it is indestructible

    I use mostly illustration these days having mived from wicked, but the new 4013 reducer made my wicked paints viable again.

    thanks for the tips Kim.

    edit:I am sure you did a typo with 3012 and you had 4012 in mind.
