    Hear ye , Hear ye!

    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 (10)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.

    1. Registration Starts Today!! 13th June 2019 and closes 30th June 2019- 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.

    2. I will send a PM (start a conversation) with you on 1st July 2019 to inform you who your paint pal is.

    3. If life or health issues come up prior to the names being assign send me a pm letting me know so I can remove your name from the list.
    If a major life issue or illness comes up after the names have been sent out. You must let me know ASAP.
    Depending on what paint week you have had will an excuse be given. Other wise you will not be allowed into the next round
    .(Sorry but we have had some issues on the last round with just such cases)
    Also be active as possible during paint pal, to many MIA during the last round.

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

    5. It must be in the mail to your victim / recipient no later than 1st August 2019. 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 PP 19' 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 places around the globe)
    Folks from the USA PLEASE INCLUDE "USA" IN YOUR ADDRESS remember a lot of folks do not live here.

    ***** if you have special instructions for delivery please include those in your PM ********

    Let’s get this party,

    I was one of those that didn’t receive one in the last round. :(

    If you want to play then I suggest you start painting as soon as you register (or better yet, when you get times that you ‘don’t know what to paint’ then paint a paint pal ! That way you have some reserve pieces if you do get hit by the ‘life’ truck’ )

    My last two were never posted up so I’ve no idea if they were received.

    PM sent. Just so everyone knows I'll be gone on vacation for the majority of the month of July. I'll be off the grid most of the time. So, I won't be very active on the forum, but my PP will be finished and mailed on time!
