Decided to try a black griffon using dry metallic pigments.

He was very difficult to photograph but I tried different lighting and angles to try to capture the variety of colors he possesses.

Sweet. He'd be perfect for a half-demon griffin from the Pathfinder Classic Monsters updated.

Thanks Joe! But I'm sorry, I don't understand - Pathfinder Classic Monsters Updated? I did notice that his tail is in a different position than the griffons now available. I bought him a few years ago but the store in my area has some really old stock. lol! Does anyone know when the griffon was changed?


Thank you joshua!!! I appreciate it!

now that's a very interesting effect you achieved with those metallic paints... I'm not sure if I like it on that particular model, but it sure got me thinking about possible uses. thanks for inspiration!

Thank you Nameless! But just to be clear, I didn't use metallic paint. These are dry metallic pigments - Jacquard to be specific. I applied them dry with a Colour Shaper - if you use a brush, they just go POOF and you have a mess. But the Colour Shapers work great for application. I applied the pigments in layers, sealing each one as I went.

lol! Thanks Silas and Baphomet!

Dragons eh???

Well in the WIP thread I have going on him, I did mention he was actually a test piece for something else. Exactly what you ask? Well, you'll have to come to ReaperCon to find out. :devil:

Kath you have to show me how you did this at ReaperCon. I'm really tempted to try this technique on my Dragon.
