N. 117, clumsily trying to cut off with scissors the plastic cap of a  new bottle of bright red spray paint.
The scissors punch an hole in the can instead of cutting the plastic tap out, and a 1 mt. high geyser of bright red spray erupts unstoppable from the bottle and I run around as an headless chicken with red spray painting everywhere until I run outside and let the can finally empty itself into a ceramic sink which has been red ever since. Probably 20 years ago. Mum was not amused

Somehow grabbing the ultra-gloss varnish I didn't realize I had and sealing my entire 22-strong Blood Bowl team in a very shiny, very hard coat.

Actually, that's not a bad move at all.  I always spray my figures first with gloss coat for hardness, let that dry, then spray with dull coat.  Provides much longer protection, especially for figures like BloodBowl where you're always putting them down on their sides.

I suspect I am not alone in:
1. slicing large chunks out my fingers
2. dropping the knife into my foot

Do you have any identifying scars?  Yes, lots of small ones on my left fingers.

By some magic ward, the knife has never stuck into the foot though, that has always been a marvel to wonder at.

I have always gloss coated my figs because it makes the color pop and holds up to use. Unless you are taking pictures up close I don't think it makes figs look less "real" because its not that noticeable from a distance. So no problem (and if it troubles you you can matt coat them as someone else already suggested  :D)

Thought i will just shake this dip pot a bit, rather than stirring it.......now the funny part was, id taken the lid off to stir it. the not funny part was telling the wife, whilst in a joking way that we needed a new carpet and possibly the dog needed a haircut. 7 years on and she still brings it up whenever i am starting to do a new model.
