Hi, after a few years of not painting, the corona virus made me pick up the brushes again. Every time I start a new phase of my erratic painting schedule there is a little ritual: I try to paint Laurana from the old LTPK2, struggle with her scroll, strip the paint off, try again and then give up to paint something else. The instructions tell me to paint the scroll in white, make a black wash and then dry brush in white and voila, the writing on the scroll will magicly appear. Except that it doesn't, it just becomes a complete mess. What am I doing wrong? What could I do instead? My freehand skills are nonexistent, so the obvious solution (and the one I see done very often on this mini) doesn't work for me. Leaving the scroll blank, because "she just cast the spell and it has disappeared" feels like cheating. I would be really glad for some hints to point me in the right direction. Thanks for your help!
Reaper Bones 77511 Xiloxoch, Naga So I had grand plans for this mini; washes on the scales and NMM on the headpiece, but alas neither of those came to pass. Like usual, washes hate me, so after a wash attempt that ruined my previous effort at painting the scales, I ended up meticulously painting and shading each scale. I did successfully glaze on the scales at the very end for shading, so i call that a win. Moving on to my grand NMM plan. After painting every scale I was pretty sick of the mini, and it sat untouched for month. Then I had an incident of pouring way too much gold paint into my wet pallet by accident, and used that as an excuse to just finish the mini.
