Wow Malcolm, I'm impressed! I didn't know that level of detail and contrast was possible with acrylic. I learn new things every time I visit the forum.

The secret is to experiment, expensive, I know but once you've got it right, write the settings you used down for future reference.

Very important for sure- although I would not say it is expensive, just part of learning the craft... and any craft worth learning will cost you time or money or sanity, or all three. Gene
