    Hear ye , Hear ye! Ladies and Gents

    It's time for another round of Paint Pals. (a.k.a PP)

    What is Paint Pal ?? Its the OAF (Orange Airbrush Forum) version of ‘pen pal’ meets ‘secret santa’

    So what do you say! Come and join the fun, it’s always been a blast before and plus it’s a great way of getting you to paint close and small and help improve your skills! Of course we expect you to play nice and not paint anything offensive, so avoid race/religion and nudity to be on the safe side please (and no clowns to Squishy !)

    For all the new folks, you are encouraged to join in the fun too, but you need to have at least ten posts on the forum to be eligible to participate, so make an introduction thread and join in some general threads and you’ll have 10 posts in no time.

    This is all about having a bit of fun, plus its really cool because you have no idea which artist is painting a picture just for you from somewhere around this globe!

    The rules are simple

    The first rule of PP is you don’t talk about PP! If you need help then by all means post on the forum, just don’t mention it’s a PP.

    1. Registration Starts Today!! 15th July 2018 and closes 31st July 2018- Once closed I then lovingly put all names onto their own ‘post it’ note and put them on a cork board and throw a ‘knock off airbrush dart’ at the board to determine who your victim/ recipient will be.

    2. I will send a PM (start a conversation) with you on 1st August 2018 to inform you who your paint pal is.

    3. Pick a substrate no bigger than 5" x 7" (127mm x 177mm) and get painting.

    4. It must be in the mail to your victim / recipient no later than 1st September 2018. Let me know when you’ve mailed it so we can keep track of who has sent theirs out. failure to get it mailed in time, without a genuine reason, will see you excluded from the next PP and next competition

    When you receive a PP you are expected to post it on the relevant thread for all to drool over and be jealous of

    So you’re interested?
    THEN REGISTER by sending me a PM (‘Start a new conversation’) put 'I'm in PP 16' in the title, then add the following detail in the message:
    Forum name
    Real name
    Full address (including full country name … 'SA' could be one of several places around the globe)
    Folks from the USA PLEASE INCLUDE "USA" IN YOUR ADDRESS remember a lot of folks do not live here.

    ***** if you have special instructions for delivery please include those in your PM ********

    LAST ONE IN IS A ROTTEN EGG !

    I'm in. Have my sincere doubts, but @JackEb asked me to volunteer so nicely:whistling:lol Deadlines have been fantastic motivators for me in the past, so I'm banking on a creativity boost (and yes, I expect to need it).
    Hopefully I send off a nice artwork instead of a total piece of :poo:. Is it too early to start apologizing to the "lucky" recipient?

    I ask everyone nicely :p
    Neither the OAF Ninjas or the OAF dragons have been needed for quite awhile, normally a bit of gentle nagging works lol

    :laugh:Yes you did ask nicely. Will do my best:depressed: Don't want folks here to politely suggest that maybe I should consider finger painting:sour:
    OAF has Ninjas?!? I suppose they get sent if someone's late in posting their PP ;)

    The Ninjas were active early in the life of the forum, due to lack of work they retired, we then found the "lost dragons of OAF" so now we send them out on mission that require a bit of firepower lol

    Yes, apologies for my tardiness, I was just finishing painting it and getting it in the mail! I need to improve on my previous jump start.

    I think Mark has some special coffee that allows him to mail his PP now, then put the address on it remotely once Herb sends him the victim information :)
