Winter is finally coming to Finland too after a few lousy months of rain and darkness. I think it was around 2007 that we had a black Christmas the last time and even then the weather wasn't as bad (or then I'm just forgetting all the bad stuff ).
Going with the theme I managed to base my Winter War Finns and they are now waiting to get posted on Curt's blog so I can put them up here too! A completely new snow product in use as I didn't realize in the store that Noch apparently makes a few different snow flocks and of course I managed to pick the one I hadn't tried before.
I also finally decided to upgrade brushes and ordered a set of Winsor & Newton Series 7. Hopefully they live up to all the hype. Still anything is better than the synthetic brushes that I've used. The seem to curl up at the tip after 1-2 uses and only last me a few weeks of painting. I guess paying 10 euros a piece for brushes that are supposed to last years compared to 3 euros for ones that last two weeks is going to be a good deal.
And finally a fellow Scandinavian Joakim is holding a 50K giveaway at his blog. So go there to all the great stuff he's writing about and get your chance to grab some prizes
