  1. I don't have a blog, and I am not veteran or post enough content to justify making one - so while these musings may be better served in that format, I will leave it here for anyone who is interested to view and chime in. It just so happens that my best friend happens to work at Rustoleum as a colorist; so lately I have been picking his brain since he has an extensive knowledge about pigments, paint make up, and the chemical intricacies therein. As I have delved further and further into the hobby, I have been looking more into the deep subjects of color theory and how paint is made/
  2. So I have a concept for a mini but I want desaturated colors. I mostly have bright colors. Would it be correct to mix in some greens to brown it up? How do I keep it reading red? Is it ok to still have some of the bright but use it as a highlight? Looking for links to stuff you've painted, free videos that address this, or an explanation of process that will still let me experiment a bit. Thanks for sharing your experience/knowledge.
  3. I saw this posted on another forum, and I thought those of you who are students of color might find it interesting and perhaps inspirational. It offers a color palette analysis of single frames from various movies and TV shows: http://moviesincolor.com
  4. What are the best three primaries in the Reaper line, the ones capable of mixing the largest gamut of colors? What about other paint lines? I'm most familiar with P3 paints, and there I find the best primaries are cygnar blue highlight, cygnus yellow, and murderous magenta, but murderous magenta is actually a bit too purple so it's better to also use khador red base and use them as a 'split primary'. But the P3 paints all run a bit on the shiny side, so I've been using Reaper paints also to get a more matte finish.
  5. Hi there! In Reapercon this year, I took a OSL class with Daniel where we learn the basics of OSL painting a light over a black miniature. Now I want to take the second step and try to do a OSL in a color painted miniature. Can anyone recommend a text (book, tutorial, article) or a video that teaches how to do it? Thanks
  6. I wanted to start this thread because of something I read in another one--specifically, that the MSP "primary" colors were mixed with white and thus of limited usage in some applications. I thought I might clarify a couple of points about how MSP was created and which parts of it are good for what. After I babble on for a while, I would love to see you guys talk a bit about how you use color. So if you want, just skip to the end of this Wall o' Text. First off, when we created the line, I was aiming to provide a good selection of colors that were fairly matte, had great adhesion (i.
  7. Hello all! Here's a quick question and something I'm currently curious about as I have yet to start my next project. What are some books you can recommend on color theory, acrylics, and art in general? I'd like to learn more about what makes things (especially minis) look good. Also, what books specifically on miniatures have helped you develop your skill and technique? Finally, what magazines pertaining to miniatures and/or art have you found helpful? I know these are general questions, but I'm just curious what things everyone is reading!
  8. Hello Fellow Fans of Blue! I love Bones, because they're cheap enough for me to use to demonstrate some fun stuff. I know a lot of newer (than me) painters have lots of questions about color, light and paint mixing, etc, so I was hoping to put a bunch of that stuff here. My goal is to walk through a monochrome blue miniature, using a Kickstarter Mini, Kickstarter paint, and some simple/intermediate techniques while doing some "teaching" on color and light. Er, not ambitious at all! I get to practice while doing it, so we're all having fun! First, the players of our little game: For
  9. Color theory is a good foundation for painting, but it doesn't deal with some of the surprising and fun things paint can do. Color theory is a limited approximation that works with light, but not really with paint, because in paint there are no colors, there is only chemistry. And that's a good thing. Pigments are chemical substances chosen for their optical properties, but they are more than just their optical properties. And you can do a lot with them. Any two colors can be blended in a myriad of ways: physically mixed, layered one over the other, layered the other over the one, b
