When i paint a model no matter what model i always prime the model white. I then give the whole model badab black. This have several functions.
- It makes all the details much more clear for me, which again makes it alot easier to paint.
- It gives naturel shadows all over the model. This is great cause i thin my paints with water. So when i paint a part, the shadows comes through the layer as you will notice on the second picture.
|Heres how the model looks before i start painting the pants.|
First step is a layer of catachan green. I mix it with about 2 drops of water to 2 drops of catachan green. Notice i do not care if it doesnt cover 100% the pants, this just adds to the whole look.
|After the 50/50 catachan green / water|
|After the mix of catachan green / Camo green|
|After yet another drop of Camo green.|
