Dry Brushing Black?

Recommended Posts

I am painting a black cloak on a space mouse and wondering if carbon grey (09318) or Noir Black (09289)  would be good for highlighting or dry brushing it?

 Or any other dark grey colors to use.                                                                                                              Thanks, Mike

Carbon would be fine.  On blacks, don't be too afraid to go lighter than you think you should on the highlights/drybrushing.  You can get away with a pretty pale grey (like the area around the white text boxes in the fora!) without it looking shiny (if you want it to look like slick black vinyl or leather, use pure white at the top).

I've also used Midnight Blue and Nightshade Purple.  I think Midnight Blue is my preferred highlight to black--I think it might have something to do with the sheer number of comic books I read when I was younger.
