Get to know our Painters – Interview with Patrycja

This is another post from the series of articles in which you will have opportunity to get to know our Team.

Today we want to show interview with Patrycja, one of our Commission Painters! Without further ado we’re going straight into the interview! 😀

What excites you the most about painting models? Do you have a favorite figurine or project that you've worked on recently?

What fascinates me the most about painting models is the opportunity to experiment with a rich palette of colors and the variety of painting techniques that can be applied. It’s a continual discovery of endless possibilities! Each painter finds something that suits their preferences and style. I particularly enjoy painting the skins of characters and fantasy figurines, which provide an open space for imagination, allowing for the creation of unique works. In fact, every figurine, even the simplest, can be transformed into something unique and beautiful!

What has been your biggest surprise related to painting figurines?

Probably the biggest surprise in painting figurines for me was the scale and detail of the models. Some of them are really small, and painting them requires extraordinary precision and meticulousness. Initially, a big challenge for me was painting pupils evenly. It was very frustrating, but fortunately, I don’t have that problem anymore.

Any cool tips for beginners in model painting that you've discovered or learned here with us?

Well, it’s best to start painting from the general to the specific and trust the process. At certain stages of painting, the figurine may seem unattractive, but it’s the final nuances that make the work satisfying and bring it to life. Patience is key. Precision develops gradually, and what initially seems impossible eventually becomes achievable. Additionally, I recommend taking short breaks during painting. When the eyes rest a bit and we look at the figurine with fresh eyes, we can catch any imperfections and improve the details.

Do you have any hobby painting goals for this year? Anything new you'd like to try or a technique you want to master?

Above all, I would like to focus on techniques that will improve my workshop and its quality. I really like the effect of high contrast on the figurine, brush sketching, and intense colors. I’d like to develop my unique style to create works that surprise and attract attention.

Do you have any other creative projects you're working on or would like to start?

 I try to approach each model creatively and maximize its potential. In the future, I’d like to take on the challenge of painting a large model, like a dragon. I believe that creating such a character can be a valuable and enriching artistic experience.
