    Help with chalky skin tones

    Yeah, I found that glazing medium worked to stop the chalkyness a bit.
  2. I'm having a real hard time remembering which off whites and off blacks are off in which direction (blueish/reddish/cyanish/etc). Do these happen to be listed anywhere?

    Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

    Human Scale Mechanical Persons Half-dragons (dragonborn) Gnomes. (there are maybe 7-10 gnomes in the bones line) Halflings (somehow there are even fewer halflings) More heroes holding things other than swords/weapons I sorted my bones into hero categories, and "humanoid with sword(s)" was by far the largest bag.

    Request for index of pdf and misc directories

    I'm aware of the "the craft" page, but I'm sure there's a lot more pdfs of printed resources that I'm missing.
  6. Someone linked to https://www.reapermini.com/pdf/CW18_PaintLikeMaster.pdf earlier today, and I was wondering if there was an index of all the documents like that on the reaper site. There was also a swatches document someone posted from the /misc/ folder as well.

    Paint Triad

    That document answers SO MANY questions I asked this week. thanks. Why isn't this linked from the paints page on the store?

    What triads to get?

    I guess I should have started with this, but this is the current checklist spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/154DbjQtCR6u-g-_w-zMf8g_BwuaZpk2ObwT72SqHEF8/edit?usp=sharing

    Help with chalky skin tones

    Yeah, that's what I realized... hence blotting from the middle if I was loading a wet/semi-wet brush already. As to whether to keep fighting the reaper skintones (now that I seem to have a handle on them) or to switch to scale 75 or something... I still have to decide.

    Help with chalky skin tones

    I do now it it seems overloaded... and I usually blot from the middle of the bristles. (if I had wet the brush before the paint). My methods have been in flux for a bit.

    Help with chalky skin tones

    Usually a 0, though I tend to try to put as little paint on them as possible to avoid it spilling everywhere. Like I said, it'll probably sort itself out as I get better at thinning.

    Help with chalky skin tones

    Pacific northwest, but somehow I have a drying problem sometimes too. Mostly due to insufficient thinning I think. But trying to do eyes, sometimes the I'll go from the palette to the model and it will be dry by the time I get there.

    Help with chalky skin tones

    @cyradis I tried airbrush thinner instead of water, and that ended up chalky as well. I don't have thinner medium specifically.

    What are clear colors for?

    What is the intended purpose for the six clear colors (09094 - 09099)? The couple times I tried them they weren't very transparent afterwards. I tried them over metallics and they completely occluded the reflection. Maybe they need more thinning, but then how are they different than other colors?

    Desk Lamp?

    I don't know what your budget is, but I like my > Brightech LightView PRO LED Magnifying Lamp - Full Spectrum Daylight Bright Magnifier Glass Lighted Lens - Adjustable Swivel Arm Utility Clamp Light for Desk Table Task Craft or Work Bench - White It takes up about 4 sq in of desk space on a corner and I can swing it between 2 desks. Also I've been trying to match the color temperature of all the lights in the room to the 5000-6000K range. Mostly for when I was streaming before, but it probably helps with painting too.
