If you want to do well in speed-painting, you needs to know the tips an tricks from the pros. Grab a brush and let’s get started.
In many conventions one of the activities you can participate in are speed painting competitions. You are seated with a group of like minded hobbyists and given a primed miniature. Normally you will be given a brush, a cup of water, a paper plate, and some paints (not many so you will need to mix to get some of the tones). You can inspect your miniature most of the time, then when the timer start for painting you will have between 45 – 60 minutes to put paint on the mini.

You will have to paint the figure to the best of your skill, and even do something for basing if you want to have a chance at winning.
