On this example I'll be using a black base.I will not specify paint or ink brands as I use various makes and personal choice of colours depends on taste & availability.
Obviously if you want a brighter shade of end colour use a grey or a white undercoat.
For e.g. Red is subdued on a black or grey base but bright on a white one
Hope you find this small tutorial useful & as always may you be inspired.
|Black base, Gun metal dry brush|
|Base colours are done, followed by ink washes|
|Now you have the choice of either waiting for the inks to dry OR paint wet on wet.|
|Wet on wet is basically blending paint on the still wet ink but be warned this requires a lot of practice to do right.|
|Finished model , I added highlights to brows, lips, ears, pouches & painted the chain & pedant, yes this mini has a pndant hanging from his neck. Goes to show the sculptors skill.|
