      I think it’s really awesome that the pieces you painted are being sold as real authorized Windstone test paint pieces! That’s very cool! Congratulations!

        Not too many so they will be pretty rare ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m honestly not sure how many things I painted made the quality cut so I’m not sure how many will be offered.

        The Male Kirin I painted just hit ebay! He has a whole matching family as well. I’m so happy!

            The Kirins look really pretty too! Do you by chance know how many you did while you were there?

              Funny thing… I had NEVER airbrushed before. At first… I hated it. I was really apprehensive and just couldn’t get it to work for me. Every time I had to get in areas where two colors would touch I would make a mistake or not be able to maneuver the right way to get the paint where I wanted. (especially on the little pieces) I kept getting over spray on areas I was all happy with and was like Noooooooooooooooo!!!! LOL!

              I tried doing my regular blending technique on a baby oriental with a paint brush and it was an utter train wreck. He looked like a wee little poop pile! I had also never worked with Golden Brand or otherwise any archival paints before. Once I embraced the airbrush…. blending is SO MUCH EASIER!!! Oh my God! It would have taken me weeks to paint those griffins because of the feather markings, but I was able to breeze right through it. The Kirins took me basically only a day to do the whole family once I got the airbrush down. I was really JUST started to get the hang of it when I had to leave. I really wish I had that kind of equipment at home. I would go and paint there every day for free! It was so awesome!

              While I was there I painted a lot of things, but really only half of what I painted was probably worthy of selling… if that. My first item was a little curl dragon which was homed with another visitor to the factory during my visit. Then I practiced on a few little defective pieces before I tried anything major. Those were basically all throw away castings unfortunately and most were never finished because of that. As far as the good stuff, I painted a set of Spectrals I was really happy with along with the Kirin family. I would think that’s about all that would make it to ebay or the store besides the griffins honestly. There was a really cool Male/Mother/Fledgling Dragon combo I did in a Raspberry Lime scheme, but the red was very similar to Ruby so we were afraid it may be unstable in the same manner and I also got a few little paint splatters on some smooth scales because I was still getting use to mixing my own colors and I think I had my paint mixed a little too thick, so I think they are probably going to just hang around the factory or maybe someday be raffle prizes or something if they didn’t get tossed. I honestly have no clue, so don’t quote me on anything. I was just happy be painting Windstones! LOL!

              I spent a day putting eyes in the little Grab Bag Tad Poads too so I got to do a lot of other fun stuff. As fun as it was helping out at the factory, I think one of the other best parts was John teaching me how to use a bow an arrow during a painting break. It was awesome!!!

                    I’m not even going to ask how far the target was placed or if there was a person with an apple on his/her head involved…

                        OMG, that Root Beer line was TERRIBLE. I wouldn’t have minded nearly as much if I hadn’t forgotten my sunscreen at John and Melody’s house! Haha.

                        I forgot the dead bird parts!!!

                            I didnt mind the rootbeer line. But I was just sitting in the shade eating icecream, watching it.

                              Wow, your pieces are wonderful Drag0n! I would love to have that male griffin, he needs to be at my house as I have the perfect spot for him. If only I had the money for him …
