https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrzQk8moDaM Don't freak out - it's in English - Wendy is originally from Canada. I do not thank you enough for taking the time to read the machinations of a crazy gaudy radioactive Floozy. This post brings to the close eleven years of blogging and without your kindness and indulgence this blog would have folded… Continue reading Thank You!
I've come to believe that growing and learning is something we should endeavor to do until we draw our last breath. Why? Things change. It's often been said that change is the only constant in the universe. So, what has all of this talk about growth and change have to do with Tavern Floor Tiles?… Continue reading DIY Tavern Floor Tiles
Two weeks ago, I set up a poll to help me find out what you like to see and read on this blog. More importantly to me, was to settle the question on monetizing the blog. I don't know about other bloggers, but whenever I read articles on blogging looking for ways to improve, they… Continue reading Results of the First Ever Floozy Poll!

If you have a suggestion that isn't in a poll question, just drop a comment or send me a message through the Contact page. There it is, the first ever poll on this site.… Continue reading First Ever Floozy Poll
Today, I was a little under the weather - you know, the pounding frontal lobe most-of-the-day headache, right above the right eye. Anyway, I only worked one hour on the project painting only one color - yellow. Yellow is a hard color to paint. Oh, you can gloop it on thick with lots of brush… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 13
I only worked two hours on the project today. Bringing the total time spent to 35.5 hours. However, I feel like I got a lot done for this unit. The shields received the by now customary Reaper Dark Elf Shadow, a purple so dark that it is almost black. The bases were painted Reaper Earth… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 12
The second unit is finished! I worked on the project 2.5 hours today. I finished the 12 figure Spears of the Winged Skull. I have now finished 24 models. I also applied the zenithal highlight to the third unit. I've spent a total of 33.5 hours on the project. I corrected mistakes, painted details and… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 11
I started today by painting the bottom layer of skin color on the daemonettes before putting them away to continue working on the dark elf spear unit. Today's main focus was the dark elf skin. As before, I use a mix of three colors - Reaper Runic Purple, Warcolours Flesh 4 and Warcolours Flesh 2.… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 10
Working on the same project 9 days in a row is tough. It reminds me of when I worked for a living. I'm certainly going to thank the labor movements of the early 20th century for pension plans and retirement. Also, if you enjoy having a weekend, that's another benefit from the "liberal" labor movements.… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 9
I was going to spend several hours on the Dark Elf project today, but events and nature conspired against doing so. I only got to spend 2.5 hours today painting. This brings the total time spent to 25 hours. Today's main focus was the color green. You would think I'd have a basic green paint… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 8
Wow, I've posted everyday for a week. I hope this isn't becoming too boring. I'm afraid the daily posts are the carrot and stick to get me to complete this army. Today I started the next unit in earnest, "Spears of the Winged Skull." Whereas the identifying color of the last unit was red, I've… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 7
Before painting the details and highlights on the Red Skulls, I primed the next unit, the "Winged Skulls". The reason for this is that I use black colored gesso to prime metal and resin figures, while using black paint on plastic figures. The gesso needs time to cure as it shrinks and bonds to the… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 6
