odinsgrandson Posted February 18, 2011 Share Posted February 18, 2011 I've been painting for a long time, but for most of my life I've used metallic metals. I've been branching out more recently into NMM, and I really like it. So far, I have a good grasp on the concepts and techniques involved. The only trouble that I've come across is that I'm having a tough time figuring out what paints to use for what kinds of metals. Brass and Gold are a little trickier than I'd like them to be. So far, I've tried out golds starting with very warm brown colors (like P3 Bloodstone) highlighting by mixing in a yellow color, then to white. To this, I've added a little depth by throwing in some turquoise to the lowest brown layer. I'd like to learn a few more of the principles in choosing the NMM colors so that I don't feel so restricted. I'd like to do some copper or bronze metals that distinguish them selves from my gold, for example. So, how do you go about choosing paints for your NMMs?
