    Hear ye , Hear ye! Ladies and Gents

    It's time for another round of Paint Pals. (a.k.a PP)

    What is Paint Pal ?? Its the OAF (Orange Airbrush Forum) version of ‘pen pal’ meets ‘secret santa’

    So what do you say! Come and join the fun, it’s always been a blast before and plus it’s a great way of getting you to paint close and small and help improve your skills! Of course we expect you to play nice and not paint anything offensive, so avoid race/religion and nudity to be on the safe side please (and no clowns to Squishy !)

    For all the new folks, you are encouraged to join in the fun too, but you need to have at least ten posts on the forum to be eligible to participate, so make an introduction thread and join in some general threads and you’ll have 10 posts in no time.

    This is all about having a bit of fun, plus its really cool because you have no idea which artist is painting a picture just for you from somewhere around this globe!

    The rules are simple


    - The first rule of PP is you don’t talk about PP! If you need help then by all means post on the forum, just don’t mention it’s a PP.

    - Registration Starts Today!! 27 March 2017 and closes 7 April 2017 - Once closed I then lovingly put all names onto their own ‘post it’ note and put them on a cork board and throw a ‘knock off airbrush dart’ at the board to determine who your victim/ recipient will be.

    - I will send a PM (start a conversation) with you on 10 April 2017 to inform you who your paint pal is.

    - Pick a substrate no bigger than 5" x 7" (127mm x 177mm) and get painting.

    - It must be in the mail to your victim / recipient no later than 10 May 2017. Let me know when you’ve mailed it so we can keep track of who has sent theirs out. failure to get it mailed in time, without a genuine reason, will see you excluded from the next PP and next competition

    - When you receive a PP you are expected to post it on the relevant thread for all to drool over and be jealous of

    So you’re interested?
    THEN REGISTER by sending me a PM (‘Start a new conversation’) put 'I'm in PP12' in the title, then add the following detail in the message:

    Forum name
    Real name
    Full address (including full country name … SA could be one of several countries around the globe)
    Folks from the USA PLEASE INCLUDE "USA" IN YOUR ADDRESS remember a lot of folks do not live here.


    LAST ONE IN IS A ROTTEN EGG !

    Nah, I'll be last minute as usual lol. I like to see who I get first, then wrack the brain cell for an idea, then procrastinate about doing it for a few days (and maybe a few more), then convince myself I cant do it, then decide 'what the hell' lets see what happens, then ....holy sh*t, I've only got a few days to get this done. It's a process lol lol lol.

    There are no more surprises for us..... two peas in a pod, the rest left because they couldn't compete.

    you may not have noticed but I've added a little note on your behalf.... "No clowns to Squishy" lol

    Maybe we only do one a year for a while
    I've put it in my signature, but if you use a phone it doesn't show up...
    We will keep pushing the word, if we don't get the numbers we may have to reassess how often it runs.... maybe the next one should be called Paint Pal 2018 :laugh:

    I agree, I look forward to them happening. Its actually 5" x 7" but whats an inch between friends LOL

    Newcomers are hesitant to join in, I can understand that, I've been here since the beginning but didn't have the confidence to join in until PP5 or 6. Now I wont miss it and wish I'd jumped in sooner.

    NEWBIES.....
    Please join in, everyone starts somewhere and the group understands that. Any one who participates is more than happy to have anything, stick figures, dots and lines practise....... ANYTHING that you want to put in (as long as its not offensive LOL) we can then look back in years to come and say " I knew them when they were starting out"
    Yes it may be out of your comfort zone, that's the whole point. If you stay in your comfort zone you will never progress / grow.
