Can you introduce yourself a little bit? 

I’m Kenny Boucher Owner/Operator of Next Level Painting.

When did you start painting miniatures? 

Been painting since the 90’s but I started the business in 2010.

Why have you started this hobby? How have you discovered it?

I was attracted by badass chaos models in a local hobby shop. All it took was seeing some character models and I was hooked.

Where do you get the inspiration from? 

Comics mainly and other painters online.

What are the most important techniques a miniature painter should know? 

Airbrushing, washing, & edge highlighting. Glazing however is possibly the most valuable brush skill. I actually teach a curriculum called NLP 101 that covers these techniques as the foundation of painting minis.
