April’s Discovery Drop Unboxed
April's Discovery Box was defined by new products, making it an exciting month for our subscribers! Starting with Kimera Kolors, who recently launched a new line of high performance colours. We featured three of their 'pure pigment' artist acrylics designed to be used together to create interesting effects.
But the new products didn't stop there, we were lucky enough to include three Metal Colors from Green Stuff World's new range, launched only the month before! These metallics are absolutely fantastic and a joy to paint with.
Finally, we had another new brand in the Discovery Box for subscribers to 'discover' (the first being Kimera) - Vantage Modelling Solutions. This Polish company have an exceptional line of pigments and scale modelling products that I just can't wait to delve further into in the Discovery Box over time!
If you like the sound of April's box, why not enjoy the surprise of receiving a box like this on your doorstep every month, and sign up to the Discovery box here.

A Trio of Kimera Kolors Pure Pigments
Kimera Kolor are an exceptional miniature manufacturer that have researched, developed and launched a new line of ‘pure pigment’ acrylic paints. These paints contain only one pigment, unlike most acrylics which contain a combination to produce their different colours. This makes Kimera Kolors ideal for mixing and
means you can create a whole range of colour tones using their colour range along with their black or white.You can mix white paint with another colour to get your highlight tones, and black with your primary colour to get the shade tones, giving you a complete trio for painting. You can also add their pigments, like orange, to your own orange paints to intensify their saturation.
In April's drop we picked the beautiful orange colour, a red oxide to pair with it, and a white for creating highlights. The creators of Kimera Kolors are particularly proud of their white paint and we were keen to show it off to our subscribers.

A Set of Metal Color Paints
Green Stuff World are one of my favourite hobby brands at the moment. They are constantly innovating and releasing exciting new products as shown by their latest creation; a beautiful collection of Metal Color paints!
Israel, the founder of GSW, explained the idea behind this range of metallic paints is to produce metals which are not ‘glittery’ in their appearance, and are instead more realistic. They dry with a natural, flat finish and have solid, vibrant colours. Plus, their white metallic is unique in the hobby world - it’s a pure white, using a new type of octagonal micro pigment which reflects the white metallic precisely, giving you a fantastic white metal
Just check out the effect our painter, Marc, was able to achieve using the Green Stuff World trio. They are now some of his favourite metallic paints to use!
These beautiful metallic scales were painted by Marc Shucksmith-Wesley on Hori Mizu from the <br>Dragon Empire range by Titan Forge Miniatures!
