As stated in the title, I'm looking for a way to make washes. I really enjoyed the Citadel washes, but I ran out shortly after my FLGS closed down, and I don't want to order off the internet if I don't have to. Thanks!
They are pretty easy really, to make them before GW started producing them was simply a paint to water ratio of 1:10, although it won't flow as well as the washes made by GW or any other company, you will have to be more careful with placement of it and the amount you have used.
I find hand made washes good for covering and adding base colour to a mid tone, but certainly not for picking out details as i would professionally produced washes.
There are ways to make your own wash better, one way is to ad vallejo glaze medium, a few drops of this and some water and your wash will work really well. If you dont have that one drop of dish wash and then water works pretty good to.
washing up liquid (only add a very small amount!) breaks the surface tension of water which means the wash will give you a more even film of wash. If you want to pick out detail by allowing the wash to pool don't add the washing up liquid.
it is? I have not noticed that when I have experiment with washing-up liquid, but maybe I used to little of it, so it dident become a problem...? Anyway galze medium is better.
I'd like to give a second vote to the Vallejo glaze medium...it can really help you do the trick.
If not dish soap, what should I use? There is a Michael's craft store pretty close to where I live, I could pick something up from there.
