Tim's Painting Studio

So I think you can see from these photos that I am not the most organized artist out there. My workbench is pretty cluttered and filled with little paint pots. It's got soul though and I still get lots of work done in this little cave. 

Here you can see my wet pallet, my airbrush cleaning pot, my horde of little paints and my current project. Yep...14 long fangs have been commissioned from a gent in Florida. It's quite a project and I am stunned that I've been able to maintain a high level of painting on these guys.

Behind them in this shot you can see my next commission...6 Alpha Legion Dreads. Good god, I will never get to my own figs again!

My trusty airbrush, Iwata Eclipse. What a beaut!

I find heads are much easier to paint off the model than on them. These ones here are prepped for priming and then base coating with the airbrush. It'll be a great experience to paint all 14 in one go.

Although banner are pretty ridiculous for modern warfare, I do love how they look. 

This is a piece of work my wife did for my birthday. My favorite image in my whole "studio."


  1. How are you attaching the models to the paint pots? I've tried superglue but it leaves a residue that is a pain to scrape off.


    1. Yes, I use sticky tack. It's not perfect but it gets the job done.

  2. @Simon - Blue Tack is the way ;]

  3. Dude, I love it! Everything you need within arm's reach and a 10% effective work area.

  4. Great shot of the desk.. will be posting one of mine later today also..
    Great work on the Space Wolfs also.. bet the client will be happy when they are done.
