    i was parusing www.warpshadow.com (been looking into starting a nid army) and i seen this amazing concept of dipping, i wasn't sure at first, but now that i seen the before and after i think i'm sprung

    problem is, how do i get the effects of dipping while keeping the chitin on em untouched.

    i ask cause the bilious green wash i used on the chitin looks like it's glowing, and if i heavly shade it like the dipping process it'll ruin the illuminating effect.

    so anyone think i can brush the dip on with a brush? i'm not sure.

    i'm looking for this type of look on the non chitin parts, while never touching the chitin.

    here's the dipping guide, it's friggan great!!

    Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!

    You can apply it with a paintbrush if you wish. I've been using Tamiya brand Smoke to 'age' my metallics or add instant shading. Use and apply whatever colour as you would an ink wash.

    I'm actually the one who posted that to warpshadow...

    I'm not a bad painter, but I have to say, it really speeds up the painting process when you've got a lot of models/little time.

    so you don't think it'll ruin the effect to brush it on?

    props on clark, all us so/so painters out there should be thanking you, for showing us the way.

    If you don't want a piece of the model touched. Put Scotch tape over it.

    Snap&#33; That looks a pretty-pretty good&#33; And thats just one stage? From base colours to finish with just one dipping? I wonder if that would work for red and black Tau...

    I think it is a really neat trick but I couldn&#39;t feel like I accomplished anything after using it. My painting is above average and I take pride in my work. I wouldn&#39;t be able to brag about that. But I think it&#39;s awesome for basic troops to get done quickly, or if you can&#39;t paint very well&#33;
