ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Anne and I’m a professional miniature painter and paint line designer. I love to paint and I love to talk about paint, and that's why we're here!

Reaper Miniatures hired me on over fifteen years ago to be their in-house staff painter, and also to create a new paint line for them. We’re the only miniatures company to make our own paint in-house! In my job for them, I concept and name the colors, create the initial formulas and batches, and mix Master Series Paint from the ground up on a day-to-day basis.

WHY PATREON?

I like to talk about paint and painting. I like to talk about it a LOT. But seriously…

I get a lot of questions about the paint. Not just about color choices, but about which colors go together, why the paint acts the way it does, and the best ways to utilize it for this or that technique. I love to teach. Painting and paint chemistry are my passions. This Patreon is a cool, interactive way for me to finally answer all of your questions!

In addition to that, I'm a well-known miniature painter who loves to get people engaged in the hobby I love. This Patreon lets me reach more people on my own time, teach you guys the way I most enjoy doing it, and create an artistic community that everyone can enjoy, all at once! I'm super-excited about it!

WHAT DO YOU GET?

Your basic tier gets you access to exclusive Work-in-Progress photos of either one of my current projects or a one-off tutorial subject. This will include notes on techniques, what I’m doing, my color choices, and mixing recipes that I use.

The subsequent tier goes more in-depth on the paint and how it acts and reacts. Color interactions, some basic paint chemistry, breakdowns on specific colors—all the stuff I really love to talk about!

Then we scale up to more content (I’m told that “Anne babble” can be pretty educational!). These will include more photos, PDFs, and videos. Since I'll have more time to spend on these, it's likely to include more info on my creative process as I approach a piece, and details on how I fix my inevitable mistakes. In addition, this tier and above are the first people to get the word if one of my finished pieces is for sale, which does happen from time to time. 

And, finally, we round out with two top-tier levels: a monthly AMA guided by my highest tier Patrons, with your specific questions answered via text and/or video (depending on which format makes the most sense), and then shared with the rest of the Patreon; and a couple of individual coaching sessions.

I’m really into having you guys guide the process here, so I’ll be asking for feedback regularly to find out which colors or subjects you want me to talk about. I’ve also got a Discord server for us all to hang out and chat on!

FUTURE PLANS

I really want to go heavier into the video side, which involves upgrading my lighting and camera setup so that it’s enjoyable for you guys to watch! I'd also like to get a really good video editor and learn to use it, which takes time. As we progress, if things go well, I’ll be able to free up the time and money for this stuff, and offer more and better video content.

My goal is to continually reach out to you guys for feedback in order to offer the content that you most want to see. Ideally everyone learns something valuable from this—me included!

I also really enjoy encouraging painters who want to reach a competitive level. So, if people enjoy them, and if the Patreon grows enough, I’d like to be able to make time for more one-on-one coaching and feedback sessions.

I believe strongly that the only thing between any of us and the realization of our painting goals is the amount of love and time we want to put into it. I know you can do this, so let’s go for it!


Tiers
Patron of Paint!
$2 or more per month

·  You get access to at least one substantial PDF or short video per month on a given technique; a video will be almost always accompanied by a companion PDF. It's my hope that doing both together helps everyone to learn!

·  You also get access to the answers for our monthly AMA session, and to our Discord hangout, where there's even a place to post your models for feedback. :)

Includes Discord rewards
Colorful!
$5 or more per month

Patron of Paint, Plus:

·  At least once a month I’ll do an in-depth workup on a color or set of colors—characteristics, paint chemistry if applicable, what’s it good for, what goes with it? Lately I've also been working my way through Reaper's new Bones line, analyzing the best paints that go with them for highlights, shadows, partner colors, neutrals, and even skin tones!

·  As we progress I’ll ask you guys for suggestions on which colors you’d like me to feature, and allow you to guide the content. 

Includes Discord rewards
Paint Warrior!
$10 or more per month

All of the above Tiers, plus: 


·  A video tutorial focused on a specific area or technique I’m employing on a demo model or one of my current projects. As we progress, I’ll ask this tier for feedback on specific techniques, model subjects, or areas they would like me to focus on. 


·  You will also get your own channel on the Discord, where I’ll pop in to answer additional questions about the content I give you guys. 


·  In addition to that, from time to time I will be offering my projects for sale when they are done. You guys and higher tiers get first notice on when a model is or will be for sale, at which time you can message me if you’re interested!

Includes Discord rewards
AMA/Roundtable Knights!
$15 or more per month

Access to all previous Tier content and Discord channels, plus: 


·  Once a month, your questions or suggestions for content, specifically answered and/or addressed in detail via video, as many as I have time for! Any unanswered queries or ideas will carry into the next month. Since you’re my roundtable, you can also "tell Anne What to Do"--i.e., suggest a specific topic for me to cover for the whole Patreon in a coming month!


·  You will also get your own channel on the Discord, where I will hang out and talk paint. There may be (will probably be) additional photos of cool stuff for you there, depending on how cool the stuff I’m doing is at the time!


·  As with the Warriors tier, if one of my projects is offered for sale after it is done, you get to know about it before the rest of the internet!

Includes Discord rewards
Paladin Tier
$60 or more per month (sold out!)
Access to ALL previous Tier content and Discord channels, plus: 


·  Let’s teach you how to kick some serious painting butt! Once per month, you and I will get together and have a one-hour video coaching session. We’ll chat a bit beforehand about what you’re looking for and what might be most valuable to you for subject matter. I’m exploring a couple of different video chat options for this, and I’m open to your feedback.
