Dylan, Seamonkey's video is pretty awesome. I love seeing how another artist approaches a challenge like that! Since I posted last, I did manage to do a few tests with the Dru Blair colors and what I found was that his paint really does have an almost chalk like finish when it is dry on the surface. This was fantastic for pulling off some of these scratching techniques. I am looking forward to getting some of this on the mini paintings. I'll keep you all posted!
