I need some advice on painting blue skin. I'm not looking for a quick method as my preferred method is to do a few layers of shading. I have made an attempt to paint blue skin but am so unimpressed by it I'm going to strip it back and start again. The model is a Tyranid Tervigon and I was hoping to do an impressive paint job on it as it's a great center piece to my army.
This is the kind of color I'd like if anyone can help.
I can help, but it does unfortunately violate your slower method request (but it's the only one I know...)
1) Skull White/Dheneb Stone basecoat.
2) Wash with Asurmen Blue ink. - Do multiple washes for darker skin.
Works great on Tau - And while it may be a quick method there's nothing stopping you from using it to get your basecoat before doing a more complex/lengthy thing either.
You could use that simple wash and layer onto it to fine tune the color of the skin. Are you going to do the armored plates in black? Similiar to the back of the frog?
