APRIL 3!

Have you painted any of the transparent/translucent bones minis? What worked well?

Yes, of course. I"d say that it's worked out pretty well. Here's some examples:

Kyphrixis, White Dragon   

Bones 4 Ghost Pirates

Bones 4 Giant King Cobra (LEDs) (translucent fire effects)

SOONTM

 

Never done it yet, but I have some Tamiya clear paints which should do the job of maintaining the transparency.

No.  The only ones I have are the fire sprites (or whatever) and they work fine on the table as-is.  DH has the green ones, I don't think we've ever used them.

I have painted the Banshee as a ghost emerging from my Casket of Souls piece.

Also I have painted the tentacle spell effects as part of my Elder God breaks out of his Container piece.

 

Both were painted in colours matching their original ones ( green/pink).

I've done a few ranging from ending up totally opaque to somewhat translucent. Primed with Liquitex matte medium and tried to do a minimum of painting using washes, glazes and drybrushing to keep the translucence. Got too many attachments so couldn't find older pics and realized I haven't taken ant pics of the ghosts I painted last fall. Some are ok.

Yes. I painted some translucent ghosties. I "primed" them by slathering Vallejo Gloss Varnish on them. Then I used S75 inks on them for coloring. Did a magic orb just by mixing gloss varnish and purple ink. It worked fine.

I haven't really, other than primigg one.  One of these days I might give the whole translucent thing a shot, but for the time being I tend to prefer my minis opaque. 

 

^^that. I'm not actually a huge fan of the translucent figures. I might do similar sloppy paint jobs on some in the future for shizngiggles, but I don't actually think they look that great painted unless you're going to do something cool like shove an LED in a gelatinous cube. To me they're the ultimate "buy and fling on the table" sort of figure to not care about. Got a ton of translucent WizKid elementals for my D&D adventure.... right before we had to go online. No real intention of ever painting them (water and air). I'd just as soon have something opaque for anything I put paint on.

How cruel, you not only gave the invisible dragon only enough base space for a single foot, but you also cut him off at the shoulder!!! 

 

(yes, it's supposed to be purple)

We know this is a lie, and you didn't paint it, because there are not enough colors of paint in the background. :poke:

Yes, I’ve paint four walls of fire.

I base coated with matte sealer then painted in the cracks. As you can see, on the second set (or maybe it was the first set, heck if I remember) I forgot to do the OSL effect on the ground.

Attempted painting the shadow hound as half opaque and leaving it half translucent. Wanted the hound to appear as if it was phasing in to reality.
