I always start off red hair, no matter how light or bright it will end up, with a dark auburn color as a base coat, then highlight up from there, or use the dark auburn color as a wash, then touch up the base coat...

Thanks. Do you have a Reaper MSP color you like for this or that is similar to what you use?

 

09070 Mahogany Brown makes a very good wash color for brighter red hair, or a good base coat for a darker auburn color. It's a medium-dark brown with a strong undertone of red in it. If you have the Reaper Red Hair Triad (09241-3: Auburn Shadow, Carrottop Red and Highlight Orange), Mahogany brown is basically the next step down in that progression from Auburn Shadow...

Thanks Mad Jack! I do not have that triad, but do have the mahogany brown. Suppose I just have more paint to add to my wish list now. I just got a third paint caddy so that my pile of new paints and special edition paints can finally get sorted with the rest, so there should still be a little room for expansion. I am always looking for better hair colors (love the blonde triad). The reaper MSP paint page is a dangerous place in which I always see new paints I think I could use...

      32 mm STL, resin and metal miniatures of Mythos Villians with serious references to characters from popular culture!

      I've been pleased with the quality of their STL files from previous projects.

      Got the first set of 5 done.  I bought 5 Santas (one was in my bones 5), 4 Mrs. Claus, 4 Christmas mouselings.   I'm preparing a holiday ornament and diorama for friends to give them. 
       
      Santa is now complete, but still need to get him on his base with Mrs. Claus.
       

       
       
      Battle Report! 
       
       
      I painted my first santa with a black primer.   It took about 4 or 5 layers to get red to actually show and not look washed out.  I just happened across a youtube video where Paintman Journeying was talking about how laying pink under red will help coverage and saturation.   Was worth a try for how many red clothes characters i was about to do. 
       
      WORKS AMAZING.  
       
      I then took all of them to base coat with airbrush. And not only that, it gave me a great way to go through more of the BCA pink i have 5 bottles of.   Finally i can use it on more things!   Warning for others: BCA pink has weird coverage. It's very very very very chalky. I hadn't noticed it on my small parts i use to paint it on like tongues or trinkets, but on big areas i really noticed.  
       
      The assembly like setup on these worked great. Painted in this order:
      Coat, pants, hat first. 
      Santa's gift bag (different red)  next. 
      Cream trims next. 
      Face.
      Teddy bear.
      Washes on face and bear. 
      Gloves, boots, and belt. 
      Packages and trim. 
       
      So far so good.

      I went with saturated colors on this one.  Enough of the black and brown, this Sascha is from a dimension where the future's so bright you gotta wear shades.
