Anyone who’s done any miniature painting knows the near-magical power of drybrushing. Beyond just laying down a few thin coats of base paint, it’s the first thing one does to elevate a miniature paint job. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it makes a world of difference in the realism of your models.
Here is a tutorial on the site of UK brush manufacturer, Artis Opus, on all of the techniques–the ins and outs–of this mother of all “specialty” painting techniques.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
