One of the areas where I have not worked very much in the painting realm is inks, and I want to use red ink to make the blood on some of my models look freshly applied and wet
What is the best method to use your inks to get this effect? I've tried using inks before and did not get very good results. Any help would be appreciated.

Ogre Kingdoms 4/1/1
Word Bearers: 2/0/0
For dried blood(What I use on my Nurgle and Ogres):
Watered down blood red splattered around the edge of the blade
A touch up of blood red if you want it fresher.
For fresh blood:
2-3 coats of blood red (Just so you can see a small tint of the weapons colour)
Wash of red Ink
Personnally I would go with number 1 as that looks best on Ogres and Nurgle, and judging by your "Army:" title, that is what you collect.
I have had great effect with Tamiya Clear red acrylic paint. It is thicker and more viscous than ink and has a nice rich red color. Really good on snow as well!

red ink + chesnut ink 50/50
and a bit of arcoat to make it dry shiny
do not underestimate a sponge, what they lack in movement they make up for in brain power.
Yup. Add a little varnish. PVA is a cheaper substitute but can run if the mini gets wet.Originally posted by the sponge@Jan 23 2005, 05:13

well... i've painted a zombie a few days ago wit Red gore, and it still look wet... don't know if i've done anything wrong, but i have an other one which has dried, and i painted it after the "wet one"...
how many coats are you doing of the gore?
i found that the newer reds (blood and gore) are both really thin paints, but my housemates paint (199 are that perfect thickness, gore is a nice red colour mainly because it is such a "wet" red, looks really nice on my marines, but they were boosted with blood underneath.
FOR THE EMPORER!!
You could always put a touch of varnish on it to give it a bit of a glossy look... like light was reflecting off of it or something.
you could always sharpen it and cut yourself, or your little brother
