Highlighted Metallics

Recommended Posts

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to paint highlighted metallics? For those not sure what I'm talking about, it's basically NMM with metallic paints. I'm especially interested in those really smooth metals I see on some high end models - preferably without going to oils.

Paint highlighted metallics exactly as you would standard NMM, except instead of a steady progression of normal colors from dark to light use a steady progression of metallic colors from dark to light. If you're wanting a colored metallic, just mix in a couple of drops of regular paint into your metallics until you have the shade you require.
