    It isn't really hard to hit ten post , Just reply to some of the painting you like , or if there is a thread on a question that you have that you feel needs to be explained differently then ask. We do our best :d

    Yes you sign up and then all the names go in a hat . I then pull a name and send you who your paint pal will be . That does not mean that is who will be sending you one.
    You can see the rules here and you must have 10 post to sign up.https://www.airbrushforum.org/threads/paint-pal-17-last-one-for-the-year-is-here.21054/

    It does not matter if all you can do is a 5 x 7 page of dots and daggers it is about spreading the love and having fun.
    I have gotten paintings from total noobs who put their best effort into it. On even sketched out a coloring page and painted it on a 5 X 7 but then it only give me the pride of being able to say I knew you when you first started.
    Trust me I can say that about our very own musismacd :D

    So feel free to join when you feel you are ready no pressure .

    Okay, so now Mr.micron has finished confusing you, himself and everyone else .... wait for a few more days and you will see a thread appear stating “Paint Pal sign up” I can’t remember what number it is now ... 17 ?

    Mr.micron has linked to the rules but remember that the first rule of Paint Pal is that you don’t talk about paint pal !! Which only means you can’t tell anyone whose name you got allocated or if you post on the forum for help you don’t mention that it’s a paint pal.... we are all certainly willing to help you along.

    We all avoided paint pal when we started and all wailed ‘I’m not good enough’ but guess what ... nobody cares and newbies are strongly encouraged. It helps push you a little out of your comfort zone and you will surprise yourself :)

    I blame the weather it went from a nice warm 65F or 18C to 16F or -8C in less then 8 hours. We received over 1.6 feet of rain when it was 65F to now having areas of the road that is a skating rink LOL .So maybe my old brain was not working right being I can't drink shine at my day job LOL

    Oh and this will be PP18 just for the record :D

    Nice Dude! I was “gently encouraged” to join in Paint Pal not long after I started. It’s really fun and everybody involved was a Noobie at some point, so there’s no problem there. Anything you can do will be great and I’m sure you’ll be pleased you joined in.

    So all you have to do now is send a personal message to Mr.Micron saying "I'm in" and also with your address.

    Sounds like we have a few excited people wanting to be part of this one....

    You don’t have to wait to start painting you paint pal. You just have to wait to register and then wait a few weeks get your recipients name before you can mail it out
