    Hear ye , Hear ye!

    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 (10)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!! 10 September 2019 and closes 30th September 2019- 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 October 2019 to inform you who your paint pal is.

    3. If life or health issues come up prior to the names being assign send me a pm letting me know so I can remove your name from the list.
    If a major life issue or illness comes up after the names have been sent out. You must let me know ASAP.
    Depending on what paint week you have had will an excuse be given. Other wise you will not be allowed into the next round
    .(Sorry but we have had some issues on the last round with just such cases)
    Also be active as possible during paint pal, to many MIA during the last round.

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

    5. It must be in the mail to your victim / recipient no later than 1st December 2019. 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
    Yes I am given everyone 2 full months to get something painted and in the mail.
    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 20' 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 ********

    Stick figures, artistically arranged dots, stylish lines ... we don’t care what you paint as long as you get paint onto a substrate then we’re all happy :)

    I figured someone would have commented on me given everyone two whole months to paint something up LOL.
    Also after the official names are given out on October 1, you may request a second or even a third names to paint for as well from those who sign up, but if you do so all the names given to you must receive a paint pal...
    Wonders how many people will still wait until the very last week of the second month to get something painted up ?

    Cheers for that @SiRoxx its daunting Jumping into PP and painting for somebody else when I haven't painted for so long. Time to strip down and clean out the airbrushes and get back to making art

    I get that, but I think you’ll break that rust away pretty quickly and what better way than by having a little incentive to get something done. Awesome.
