Right, so this is probably a stupid question, but I'm gonna ask it anyways, because, well, I'm uncertain.
So a week ago, I purchased the D&D/Army Painter Monster Paint Set. Fantastic set, contains more paints than I'll need ever for a decade for a year for an undetermined period of time.
Anyways, this set came with three washes - Shadow Wash, Flesh Wash, and Brown Wash. As recommended by several other painters on a different post, I decided I'd use these premade washes rather than the thinned-down paint I had been using in the past. However...
I doubted, and now I'm uncertain. After a quick google search, I'm even more confused as I saw contradictory answers, and answers that weren't really answers. I know I'm being irrational, but do you use these the same way as thinned-down paint (applying to the miniature after it's been basecoated?), or do you use it some other way?
Again, stupid question, but as they say, it's better to be safe than sorry. Thanks!
While doing research for my little hermit project (found here) I have been watching a lot of painting tutorials on youtube lately. I came across many techniques using rattle cans or even an airbrush and I would very much like to try some of those (like zenithal lighting or spraying on base coats and varnishes). Getting an airbrush would also be nice...
Here is the problem though: I live in a rented apartment with no dedicated hobby room or even hobby table. There is no garden for me to use and the balcony just got redone this spring - with white tiles. I paint my minis at my desk and use a few layers of newspaper to protect it. Works great - as long as I use brushes, that is.
I can't be the only one with a working space like this. So I am curious: How and where do you spray paint your minis? How do you protect walls and floor from the paint? I am especially interested to hear from all of you without a hobby room or a garden.
Thank you for your ideas!
I've only used Army Painter strong tone - their medium tone, I believe - to paint my Zombicide: Black Plague minis and loved how they came out. I automatically dismissed the possibility of using it on my other minis, but now understand that's what it's for. Anybody have any experience with using it on other monster or hero figures? Were you satisfied with the results? Did you use a version other than the strong tone? I note their website lists recommendations for different colors where each tone excels, etc. I'd love to hear of others' experiences with using it on non-zombie figures.
After watching Sorastro's Zombicide painting videos, I had to give Army Painter's Strong Tone a try. Here are the results. I didn't spend any time highlighting after the strong tone, except the hair.
He he reminds me of the opening scene of Walking Dead with the solitary zombie walking through the fields.
I stumbled on this while looking for something to prime my new foam terrain set.
An internet search later and I found some locally, purchased and experimented.
It says it creates a thin durable primed surface that seals the foam and makes it safe to spray with other aerosol paints.
Well, it is definitely thin and is not going to hide any detail, I will apply two coats just to be safe.
It dries pretty quick, this is two coats with one hour between coats then one hour to dry.
Here is the true test, black aerosol spray paint....
...and it worked.
There is no bubbling, melting, deformation or even softening of the foam.
For all of us foam using terrain-oholics out there we finally have a way to spray primer our terrain.
