I just bought Eldar Shining spears and I am not really sure what would be a good way to paint the front of their Jetbikes. The place where it is white+blue lines (opposite)
I thought about creating a carton with those shapes on it. And then lining by putting over the jetbikes but I m not sure if that would be a good idea.
What can I do?
(here is a picture of the shining spears)
Just create a template out of cardboard
Ultramarines: W1 D1 L1
Thats what I was thinking
Thin enough to ben and shape easily. But not as thin as paper so that it would get ****ed up.
And then draw lines with something really thin?
Maybe like a 0.5 pencil
I thought about tape but i dont know if that would damage the first coat of white.
I spray paint white and then try not to paint over it because I found that to be more uniform then any of the normal white colors I painted.
I like the tape idea. Just go buy some of the blue scotch brand edgin tape- you get clean edges and it won't damage the paint.
I tried however then I also realized how hard it is to properly cut and align curves...
So I grabbed a pencil drew lines on the white primer and painted with blue. Covered the lines. It is not really clean on the edges however it still looks pretty good. When one is done I would post a picture of it.
Painting complex patterns onto large surfaces is best done with a soft (but well sharpened) pencil and a decent rubber or 'art gom (blu-tac like rubber)'. If you use tape you may get ridges of dried paint.
Just sketch out your design lightly in pencil over your main background colour and then edge around the pencil marks. When that dries, very, very lightly errase any remaining pencil.
That's how I did this tank:
