Well not quite an apocalypse, but oy, what a pain these have been. I was only able to finish a few of these, rather than the usual 100+ size batch. I painted the rest of this hatching Pegasus batch in natural horse and earth tones. Those are much easier to deal with.
I guess it is hard to see the peg-egg problem in this photo, but there is an area that absorbed a lot of paint and turned dark; right above that there is a patch where the paint just beads up.
