I painted up several of the “invisible” PCs offered by Reaper in clear plastic, to be used as “Phantom Warriors” in a certain castle of a certain vampire guy trapped in a certain demiplane in a certain shadowy plane. Mostly it involved airbrushing various combinations of turquoise and white inks to maintain transparency but draw out the details.
I cut back on the ink for the cleric and am happy with the result. I also first drybrushed him with Polished Silver. the results are barely visible under the ink wash and just doesn't seem to add anything to the effect. I don't think I'll bother in the future. The mix I used for the wash/stain this time around was: 5 drops RMS Gloss Sealer 1 2/3 drops RMS Wash Medium 1/3 drop Liquitex Phthalo Blue Because I'm a fan of replicable processes, I approached thinning the ink by first mixing one drop of Phthalo Blue with two drops of Wash Medium. I then drew some of it into a cheap, disposable eye dropper I found in a hobby shop years ago and added one drop to a five:one mix of Gloss Sealer and Wash Medium. I'm sure that I was overthinking this. . . . The resulting seven drops of wash was just enough to coat the figure. I was a bit worried when I started applying it, but fortunately, it all worked out. The viscosity of the mixture seemed just right for what I wanted. The cleric has a more ghostly quality over his nigh-invisible wizard buddy, which works for me. I'll probably stick with some version of this formula for my other transparent figures.
