im tryong too learn to wet-blend and i have a few questions:
do u have to do it on a flat area?
do u have to have white base collour?
i tried to do it on a figure, i decided to paint his robe green so i started painting the whole cloak dark angels green, i then took snot green and painted a line of it beside it i painted a yellow line and i then tried to "blend" them toghether, and then everything got went wrong and the figure broke in three places.
any tips you can give me would be gladly appreciated.

Did you wait for each color to dry before applying the next layer?
What you want to do is apply all color transitions at the same time and while they are stil wet - feather the edges together until they blend in. Overlap the darker color into the lighter color. If they are thinned enough it should fade nicely into the next color. If not another layer of the lighter color usually fades it enough...
White is an easy base color to work with. Colors will be brighter - but really it is what you want to work with. Black base will usually require more layers to cover and the colors will be more muted...

Lynta, please could you (re?)read the forum rules, found *here*, as your post needs some serious revision, based upon them...
Basically, capitals, no web-speak, and no swearing (even in ***'d form) please?
Taking off my mod hat, my best tip for wet blending would be to use a slow-dry additive, which will give you much longer to work with the paints while they are on the model.
Otherwise, slorak is (as usual) dead on the money!

Don't try to blend more than two colours at once and make sure that they are thin and that you have plenty to hand.
It can be done on any surface; big, small, flat or rough but it might not always be wise to do so.
I'ld stick to white for it- it is much easier to see the colours that way, you can mute them afterwards as needs be.
To get a good effect would require a good eye for colour- moreso than dry blending.
Up, up and away!
well im quite good at dry-blending i think (thats when you layer right)
but now after about trying it 10 times its alreeady lookin better so i will just keep trying, i am also trying to learn nmm (non metallic metal)
and that was actually easier than i thought, im still not good at it but it looked nicer than i thought i would after just a few tries.
Cheers! and tanks for the tips.
