    Painting touareg warrior. Painted all in acrylics. I used Andrea and Vallejo for the warrior and Jo Sonja's artist acrylics for the camel. I used Jo sonja for the first time and it's really good, I really liked it.

    Thank you very much for your comments, Ed, Babis, Steve, Marc, Meizi, my friends!

    Marc, To cut acrylics nameplate, I use steel ruler and P-shape cutter. and first I apply very very weak scratch line, and then gradually scratch stronger. I scratch over and over again.

    After I cut the half of the depth, I break it by hand.
