For an on-going chapter project, we are lacking in the paint department.
I would like to ask, how can I paint a clean yellow scheme, which also has some depth? I tired painting on top of an orange basecoat, but the yellow started to look as if a pale orange.
A warm yellow, instead of a pale yellow, as the chapter markings may be red and/or black ( we haven't decided on that either ).
Thanks in advance.
I would undercoat white, and go over this with yellow ink for a nice vibrant base. The pigment of yellow paint doesn't give adequate coverage over another colour, and can end up looking thickly applied.
You could then apply very thin applications of whatever brown / orange into recesses and highlight from yellow to skull white?
Iyanden Darksun foundation paint as a basecoat is really your friend!
I do my yellow like kuffy, with a yellow brown or even just a light brown.
One of the last times I did yellow I think I started with bestial brown and mixed in golden then sunburst
*Ithink* it was a while ago =D
I also tried orange but the yellow did not cover as easily, it ended up looking too orange rather than yellow.
good luck yellow is away fun to paint

I think the key thing to realize is that it takes very little really 'pure' yellow on the mini as compared to yellow-brown for the final piece to 'look' yellow.
