Default Do you wanna build a snowman?

My first stab at using my vinyl cutter to try to create masks for painting a shell. Airbrush used was a cheap £35 set up from amazon. Not up to the standards of some of the true artists on here, but my twin 6yr olds think it is wonderful so I'll go with that

Cheers all. Must admit, I was pretty happy with it

It also goes to show that even a rank amateur can achieve decent results with the right tools. My Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter makes this very easy - certainly easier than when I tried to create a Moshi Monsters shell for my son using liquid mask and a scalpel - looked OK from a distance, but close up was a bit rough. With the vinyl cutter it is muuuucccchhhh easier. And it will convert jpegs to a mask - superb!

Default My latest attempts

This is a bit rough around the edges, but not bad overall. I was given a BMax2 shell to copy so apologies if anyone recognises the design. I was OK'd by the owner to try to copy. Clearly I am no expert so don't think I will be threatening any of the true artists on here.

and one of my first tries with liquid mask (This was last summer). A few tatty lines and the colour choice at edge of splash is rubbish, but hey ho, you live and learn

Cheers. And the paint has dried and therefore doesn't just smudge off the inside. See I'm learning all the time!!

Girls have spent most of this afternoon driving cars around garden, well, I say "around" more like "into various plants, shrubs and bushes" - they must get it from me...

Sure we will be down at Batley soon enough

Cheers Andy. Still can't really do close fades like on some of yours, but I'm getting better at creating masks and getting the paint on.
Biggest challenge with these latest were mixing the colours to try to match Anna and Elsa's hair and skin tones as well as clothing colours. Not easy with my limited choice of Createx fluorescent paints!!
