Was in my local hobby store at lunchtime and they had a range or pearlescent acrylic inks. Like metallic but the flakes look more mother of pearl like.
Has anyone used pearlescent inks or paints? Was thinking a green would look cool as a 'nid carapace colour. Not sure if i could do this with just an ink though or if i'd need a pearlescent paint
Never heard of it, never tried it. Nearest I have ever heard of being done, I saw in a WD an image of a fantasy model of someone carrying a crystal ball with a mother-of-pearl look to it. They said they did it by mixing Citadel 'ard coat varnish with Mithril Silver. Not sure if you could mix a color with this, or if you did how it would look.
Only one way to know: TRY IT, then tell us all how it went. Then, we'll ALL know!
Hmmm, £5 a pot though. Oh all right then. Annoyingly all the greens are really bright and I'd prefer something slightly darker. I'm thinking a if i do a layer of dark angel green underneath first it should look okay. The way I'm going I'll never pick a colour scheme.....
Picking the scheme is the hardest part. I have started and stopped many, many times with my marines before finally settling on what I THINK (crosses fingers) will be it.
Once you get it down, though, the rest comes faster!
I used Pearlescents once.. managed to turn bleached bone into a nice looking Ivory... Used the pearl after the bleached bone.. Managed to come out real nice..
