    So yesterday I decided it was about time I got my arse moving with repainting my Classics Starscream into Skywarp. I spent a couple of hours (whilst I was supposed to be working) stripping the paint and sanding some of him down, then I put him on the table ready to be dis-assembled, had some tea, and went out for the night...

    When I woke up up this morning as well as a raging hang-over I was greeted with the sight of this on my dining room table...


    It's not horrible. Most of the paint's alright but a little thick, I still need to sand a lot of it down. I had to use a knife to tidy up the cockpit though, that was a real mess.

    The real problem was this, I have a habit (a bad one) of washing my brushes in a glass of water, and then putting them in my mouth to bring them to a point.

    Do you see a glass of water on the table?

    My lips and tongue were black and purple and I managed to get silver up my nose, not something you really want to be scraping off of your tongue when you're already feeling rough. Thankfully I was only using Games Workshop acrylics, nice and non-toxic.

    So the moral of the story is, when under the influence, put the paintbrush down and go to bed.

    It's not only alcohol.

    "Being in a hurry" is not really good either when it comes to creating a custom. This may be caused by a person's own anxiety or just being short on
    time to do the custom.

    A lot of outside factors can make you lose your focus too, which'll harm the quality of a custom Transformer in one way or another.

    I just don't know what to say.
    When I'm drunk I don't even get the idea to take a pencil and draw random stuff, not to mention taking a brush and repainting a figure. xD

    Awesome story, but hopefully you'll have a clear mind while painting your figures next time! ;)

    Hahaha. Interesting testimony but in my case I work much better under the influence of alcohol. 2 bottles of wine and a few snacks make me incredibly patient to execute my ideas across the night and do some refined work.

    Good luck on the next time man.
