What happens when you paint something white, say a enhanced senses carni head, and then inkink it black? Does the white go all away or is there still some left?
Thanks in Advance
thats the look i was going for! Thanks.
Actually, a standard technique for painting skellies is to white undercoat them, then wash them with black ink and wipe off the top layer, leaving ink in the recesses. Looks damned good too.
Another method of a dirty grey is to drybrush some black or grey over the white. That makes it look kinda dusty, though. Using ink makes it patchy and wet.
Drybrushing is becoming an ancient tactic for painting i'm thinking. More and more are people using other modes of painting to get the job done i'm afraid.

Dont forget to water down your paints, especially if you plan on using black ink.
I've found over time that straight black ink can damage some of the upper raised
areas. water your ink down just a tiny bit and you'll like the results.
Also you might want to try brown ink over white, or maybe chestnut ink.

Automotive windsheild washer fluid works well also, since it is an alcohol + water based detergent.
It's old, but so are most of the other things people use for minis. Drybrushing is a great beginner's tactic because it's pretty easy, and it's also useful even once you have more experience for some jobs (i.e, some highly textured areas can be done mostly with drybrushing and inks, then touched up afterwards for the brightest highlights).Originally Posted by Sabe
