Deva 77363 with interference paint

Recommended Posts

So for the get to know you thread I said I was going to try painting the deva with interference paint. 

 

I started with adamantium black as a base coat. 

 

Then I used red interference over the top for the skirt. 

Blue for the armor and wing tips

And purple on the wings. 

 

When it dried I washed adamantium over the top because the interference likes to settle too thickly in the crevasses even why dry brushed on. 

 

I also played with using a little silver to highlight the skin, and to make stars. 

 

I still am trying to figure out how I can edge highlight brighter with the interference.

Cool so far.  To really get contrasted highlights you need to do all your shading and highlighting (probably in black/white) before using the interference.  Otherwise your new highlights won't interfere with the light correctly.  Rather than repainting though, you can mix some of your highlight with some interference paint and apply that where needed.

I love anything with interference paint, I didn't realize the shortcomings from it though. I look forward to seeing how this turns out.

this is only my second try at using it, so there's probably important bits I'm still doing wrong, but it is pretty fun looking when the light hits it.

The second best kind of paint I've ever encountered.

I have no experience with interference paints.

 

Would like to try it one day, does anyone know of a brand that sells in Europe?

How do I recognize these paints?

 

Also...good job so far.

I'm using "golden" acrylics that I got from an art supply store, I forget if it was Dick Blick or Utrecht. The bottles just say "blue interference" or which ever color and hen have some of the paint brushed over the label so you can what it looks like. 

 

Not sure if that's available in Europe or not.

Lascaux is a European brand of acrylic paint that includes an iridescent / interference range.  Lascaux calls them "Perlacryl".

 

When paint companies describe interference paints they usually mention that the optical effects come from microscopic flakes of mica.

Thank you, I will look into that!

Sounds pretty Dutch, Utrecht is one of our cities... Going to check this.

Utrecht could be a Dutch company but it isn't always the case. 

 

Lots of art-related companies have names reminiscent of the Dutch Old Masters.

 

"Holbein", for example, is a Japanese company (and they make excellent acrylics too).

 

"Rembrandt" brand paints *are* made in the Netherlands, but I believe they only make oil paints.

Interesting!

 

I just found a Dutch site who sells the Perlacryl from Lascaux..85ML for over 16 euro!!!!

Is such paint always that expensive?

I'm afraid so.  Lascaux paints cost more than that in the US.

 

Golden interference paints cost somewhat less around here (about $12 for 59 ml instead of $22 for 85 ml), but I'm afraid good art supplies don't come cheap.

 

ETA:  By way of comparison, Reaper paints are $3.29 for 15 ml, which makes them ounce-for-ounce very close to the price I would pay for Golden acrylics and you would pay for Lascaux.

Hadn't thought of that, you're right.

 

Might give it a try then.

 

Thx Pingo!

 

Werkrobotwerk, sorry for stealing the thread, ( Anchorman's Voice) and now back to you...

      I feel that there’s little reason to deny that the primarch miniatures that Forge World has released are some of the best minis ever sculpted for Games Workshop.
      Unfortunately, I lost the pictures we took of the first primarch I had the opportunity to paint, but I got good pictures of this one.
      This is Sanguinius, one of the most powerful and loyal of primarch, despite his rather obvious mutation.

      “...and I, Colonel Duke Jones, stand on the surface of Mars for all of humankind and in the spirit of exploration that’s taking our species beyond its Earthly bounds. And I’m lighting this cigar to celebrate a successful mission.”
       
      “Haha. Good speech, Duke. You're the first human in 76 years to stand on the surface of another planet. How’s it feel to be further from Earth than any other human being?”
       
      “Pretty good, Pioneer. It’s humbling and really gives a sense of perspective. The air is thin but breathable. Those terraforming guys did a great job. Hey, the camera’s working, right? This is being broadcast back to Earth?”
       
      “Yep, it's all good. There's a delay but they're getting it. Audience figures are even bigger than Kim Kardashian’s state funeral, so well done!”
       
      “How do things look from up there in orbit?”
       
      “We’re all good, just watching you and keeping an eye on your vitals.”
       
      “OK, Pioneer. I’m gonna have another puff on this cigar and—”
       
      “Duke, sorry to break in, but Jim just had an idea. The Earth is directly behind you. Could you turn around so we can get a shot of you looking back at it?”
       
      “Sure thing, Pioneer.”
       

       
      “How’s this?”
       
      “That's just perfect, Duke. Everything’s A-OK.”
       
      “Good to know, Pioneer. We're still live, right?”
       
      “We certainly are. Jim, you owe me fifty dollars.”

      Sometimes when I imagine the mechanics of monster summoning, it's kind of like Uber or Lyft. You select a particular summoning option, and someone picks up the call without really knowing what the mission will be.
       
      Anyway, we needed an angel. Our prayers were answered, but apparently this one was on the way to the Celestial Daycare, or maybe had just completed another summoning gig involving orphans when she showed up for this gig.  I can imagine any number of ways this could have gone.
       
      But in any case, this one arrived with a baby, and without a nose. She fight off our enemies with only one hand and without any olfactory senses.  It was truly impressive!

      SonOfCheese mentioned offhand that I would have to be "insane" to try to blend Cyan to Yellow, so I took this as a challenge.  :-)  Being Celestial and all, the Solar (IMHO) should have brightly colored wings.
       
      I dithered on what to do with his sword. I wasn't too keen on the sword being just a sword, so I ventured into a little bit of OSL with it.  Suggestions/comments/criticism appreciated if you have it, as this is uncertain territory for me :-D
       
      I did not want his MeatClaws(tm) to glow, because that would damage the delicate flavor of any celestial barbecue he chose to make with them.
