So my 'real' job is 3d artists, as you may know, and this month has been crazy busy crunch time. Result- no miniatures stuff, but my bank account is healthier (in theory- freelancers tend to get paid months after work).
Today showed a little chance to get something done, so I decided to tackle the most urgent problems in my collection- bloom.
Bloom begets leadrot which begets, well, lead poisoning and angst as your classic mini crumbles like a Skeksis Emperor sitting on the Something Wicked This Way Comes merry go round.
The solution is alkali. Lead+ acid = sugar of lead = leadrot. Alkali neutralises the acid. Yay Alkali. Up until now I have been using bicarb, but someone on some forum somewhere suggested bleach. Turns out, its pretty darn strong alkali, and pretty darn good at cleaning up minis!

Anyway, bleach gets my tick of approval and joins in ever increasing box of foul smelling bottles in my tool kit.
I am looking forward to some free time soon, I have to finish up a bunch of sculpts and I am back to painting things then blogging them... yay!
