Find Out what's inside an Asset Drop Discovery Box!
July’s Discovery Drop Unboxed
July's box was a very exciting edition of our Discovery Box as it had a metallic theme. Our first trio was from Reaper Miniatures to complete a Non-Metallic Metal Gold effect. We've had many requests over the years to cover NMMs, and with the launch of our Tutorial Tiles last month, we figured now was the perfect time! We paired the trio with an Asset Drop Shield that could be used to learn the effect.
Our second trio was from a brand new manufacturer to the Discovery Box - Molotow in Germany. This box is all about discovering new brands and hobby products, and so we wanted to showcase the extraordinary metallic pens from Molotow. They can be used for anything from painting clothing to painting miniatures, and they are particularly amazing for base coating.
We included a metallic black and silver from their premium One4All range, as well as their famous Liquid Chrome pen which is the best quality real liquid metal on the market! It's excellent for highlighting metallics, so we were very excited to feature it. We paired the Molotow paints with a Giant's Sword Tutorial Tile, and a Flesh Wash from INSTAR to add a tarnished effect to it.
If you like the sound of July'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.
