rmschaff Posted June 11, 2010 Share Posted June 11, 2010 Hello! Pardon my ignorance, I painted my very first mini yesterday, and would like to promptly stop destroying my poor miniatures. Before I started, I watched and read a lot tutorials. Everything was fine enough except my dry brushing. I took most of the paint off the brush and swept the brush lightly across the surface, and the color still blobbed itself onto the mini on the first stroke. I was using a 0 size brush with acrylic paint, but I wasn't aware that some painters thin the paint before the process. The mini was an inch in height. I was wondering if perhaps I really do need to thin my paint, or if my brush was the wrong size, or if I failed simply because it was my first mini. Do I need to splay the brush's bristles out at all? I can barely tell what the brushes look like in the tutorials. Thanks in advance for any help. :) (I started the hobby with two other friends who haven't looked at a single tutorial, so really, you're bravely saving countless minis in the process.)
