    I buy a six pack of 6 well palletws from Walmart for $1-2 when using dry pallets. I'm itching to try out my wet pallete which is huge and requires massive table space.

    I prefer 24 toffiffee wells

    As wet pallete I just take a larger blister, add some towel paper with water and baking paper. Benefits are: a mini, and a closable wet pallete.

    So, working on the saurus goes slowly. Here's the base of my vortex I'm working on to distract me a little...

    Still a little to d (adding some moss and roots) but you get the idea.

    The moss/gras is a nice touch.
    Excellent!

    Agreed. It brings a little bit more of a sense of life to the piece. Lovely work!

    So...as painting roughly a gazillion of Saurus Warriors is roughly as entertaining as drilling a screw through your knee I present my freshly painted bro's:

    They look really good, that tall grass is effective, where is that from?

    The way I do it: take bundles of ~10, and put some super glue in the middle. After the glue is dry, cut the grass in two so you have two bundles. For thicker ones repeat the steps and glue them together at the base in a spiral.
