The Joe Posted April 19, 2022 Share Posted April 19, 2022 I am working on some models for a friend currently and as I began to lay down the basecoats for the flesh tone (using the Vampiric Skin Triad) I got a bit of anxiety about it. There's a prolific painter in my area who is fairly well known in gaming circles. One of the things that always bothered me about his work was that he painted so much but EVERY TIME his skin tones would finish a gross, chalky way and he never worked to learn how to do otherwise. Chalky Skin Syndrome is sort of one the ways to tell if he's the artist on a paintjob! I REALLY do not want that to become my "style" the way it is his. Having never worked with the Vampiric Skin Triad and it having been a long time since I've had to paint any human-ish skin colors I am especially apprehensive. What are the best ways to avoid Chalky Skin Syndrome and achieve a nice, smooth finish on the miniature's flesh? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
