Getting rid of streaking? in Tips & Advice: Painting Posted November 1, 2013 Right now I'm probably committing some sort of sin the way I'm starting. I keep changing what I'm doing trying to find a method that I like. The latest is for my first coat to rub on vampire highlight with a dry brush to get a really thin coat. It brings out the detail. If I want more I do a light black wash. From there go with the color I actually want it (thinned). The beginning steps are going ok but I'm definitely still getting a handle on choosing colors that work and getting them on the way I want them. I copied a color scheme someone else did for something and the painting manged to go ok. Doing that helps me think about color a bit more. Working with it I can see more of what they picked and why. The mini before and after that one though are what prompted my questions about streaking. I don't tend to mind the screwups if I feel I'm learning something from them. I can always strip them down and start again and with a double vampire to go through I don't have a lack of things to mutilate.
