So I was experimenting with Taimaya clears and I wanted to share what I've painted so far.

I think the colors come out a little dark, but I love the jewel like gloss they dry to. 

 

I am going to get me some Taimaya clear (with no color) and some Taimaya thinner and keep expirementing. 

 

The Ghostly Summons has a few layers of Golden Glow over top to start building up some highlights. 

 

And so does the NightSpectre.

Tamiya clear is just a topcoat like Testor's Glosscoat or Dullcoat. It'll dry like the other clears thou they do have a semi-gloss version as well. Just don't get Flat Base. You add that to existing paints to matte down the sheen. Unless you want that effect.

My worry with the glossy finish the Tamiya paints give is that there will be tackiness.  How do they feel?

 

I painted one of the new Hellhounds in the Wizkids unpainted lines & there is absolutely no tackiness to the paint. It's glossy & smooth.

On Bones, no tactiness noted. Just a jewel like shine.

Very interesting effects you've gotten.

Do you do anything special, or just use the Tamiya clears right on to the figure?

 

See above. But no. I paint them just like usual Bones. Paint straight on the mini, right after washing that is.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
