Just to be clear, I do not like the eye dropper paint bottles. I just was trying to get a little more of the Reaper Brilliant Blue paint out of the bottle. I am used to trying to get paint out of the bottles when they do not want to work. After several pokes with my trusty paperclip, and some gentle shake and squeeze, I finally gave it a good (bad?) squeeze. And the nozzle exited the bottle with a dramatic splut!!!! And I go from being a frustrated mini painter to looking like a Pollack painting.
I did have to take a shower, clean my painting glasses (like reading glasses, only different). And wipe up blue paint from the wall, a bookcase end, the computer, my cellphone and all sorts of other places.
On the good side I missed all of the miniatures on the desk around the paint tray with the paint. And most importantly, I missed the 2 ships of the line hulls that I just finished. But I did get paint up my nose. At least I did get enough paint out of the bottle to base coat 4 sea bases.
And I had just decided that I would go change out of my work clothes after I put the blue undercoat on the sea bases... So, I think that I have ruined the polo shirt I was wearing.
Did I mention that I do not like the eye dropper paint bottles?
(At least all the blue washed out of my beard, ears, nose and hair. I was worried that I was going to work tomorrow looking like a smurf...)
