    Washes "Caking"?

    Howdy,

    I'm getting into a Tomb Kings army, and as many of you will know one of the key techniques when painting Tomb Kings is how to paint bone. After reading a few people's ideas and different ways to do this I decided to go for the tried-and-true white primer -> bleached bone -> Devlan mud wash technique, quick and effective! However, although it looked fine as I was doing it and right afterwards while the wash was still drying, when I returned to my paint station the next day I found that the wash had dried in a powdery, caky way, which doesn't look good at all. I'm thinking either I'm using the wash wrong or the temperature or humidity wasn't right, but if it's the latter there isn't much I can do. Am I doing something wrong with the wash?

    You're not painting or washing right after assembly are you? Super glue fumes can cause things like that.

    Primer is very toothy, this can do weird things to the washes. Try giving your models a thin coat of white before applying the wash, it does the trick on my Nids.
    If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.

    Humidity can do it. Make sure each coat is thoroughly dry before going to the next step.
