Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im starting the planning and idea work for a more wintery themed wood elves, one with lots of modeling opportunity.
so what im not sure about is how i should paint ice, ideas pictures are always awesome.
for what is being ice is my for my dryads and possible giant ice woman(converted from ultraforges treewoman)
im turning the dryads into ice elementals and the convertion seems simple in my head and now that i have the modeling idea worked out im wondering how to make them look like ice or icey.
another thing im thinking of is for some more color to the models is doing eyes (posibly mouth) glowing a green or yellow...probably a yellow green.
so to kind of wrap up this mess of a post how can i paint an ice elemental, and what are thoughts on the glowey face stuff.
any help is apreciated
well, Ive never tryed Ice myself but this is what I would do:
1. white undercoat
2. 2or 3 THIN layers of Ice Blue (I know its obvious but bear with me )
3. sharp angled extreme highlights of space wolves gray and then white
4. then maybe some shading of enchanted/ice blue mix
for the eyes (I have done this one) water down some bright coloured ink to about 1:5 ink to water and dot it on and around the eyes.
dont know if that helps but I hope it does.

similar to what i had in mind thanks for the sugestions.
oooh never would have though of that il test it out, thanks dan.
Make sure you still add plenty of water to the mix. Im not sure how this would work with washes, but I expect it would still be ok.
I use this method for blood, adding gloss to a mix of reds and black inks in several coats of different shades.
