I recall someone saying to look on a color wheel & the color opposite yellow is the color to use for shading, but I'm not 100% sure on that one.


I usually go with brown or smoke (like Flynn) when I do yellows & or golds

I have been trying other colors and a very thin wash of purple over a regular brown shading wash gives a nice tone to gold paint. Also a chesnut color can work really well, depending on what the gold is surrouned by (the other colors on the mini)

I've used chestnut to fairly good effect but the metal comes out a little... bight? Yellow and orange aren't bad and I have a 'special' mix I sometimes use but it's a little too orange and too bright requiring almost another complete cover up of the inking.


Brown though eh?


And I do have smoke. I'll have to give those a try next time I'm working on some dwarves I have.
