September’s Discovery Drop Unboxed

September's Discovery box was a real box of contrasts, featuring a trio of paints for creating eye-catching treasure effects, and a set of products for weathering up your terrain to look old and weather-worn. We were very excited to feature two premium hobby paints from Mission Models from their brand new line of Pearlescent and Iridescent paints, plus a Jade Candy Ink from Green Stuff World, who have been rapidly expanding their line of paints to include Candy Inks. Together these three products were used to paint our beautiful Treasure Horde Tutorial Tile, made exclusively for the Discovery Box to practice painting a treasure effect.

We also featured two very different products from Ammo by Mig Jimenez - a Washable Acrylic Paint and an Oilbrusher. The washable paint was perfect for producing dust effects, and is editable by using a sponge or brush to change the effect once applied. This paired perfectly with the Mud Oilbrusher, which is a brush applicator for a pre-thinned oil paint. Oil paint is a superior product for producing weathering effects, and was great for adding a layer of grime to our Abandoned Tire, alongside the Washable Dust effect. This was our second exclusive Tutorial Tile in September's Discovery Box.

Finally, we included a pack of 5 Sniperbrushes from Ammo by Mig Jimenez for applying the two weathering effect products, a fun set of tools to add to any hobby collection and a lifesaver for producing weathering effects without ruining your kolinsky paintbrushes! If you'd like to see how to use the products in the Discovery Box, you can have access to September's Painting Guide plus many others on our Patreon Channel. Download each month's digital guides (at least 5 new added per month) for only $4!
