I just read the thread about making stealth with clear resin for a cool effect and i though, is there any way to paint a mini so it look like clear??Without alot of technique like blending (i'm not very good with blending)?
Thanks for further help.
Clear paint? yeah, they give that out for free. From the faucet.:shifty:
But seriously, no there isn't. And if there was such a technique, it would be hard as all hell and inculde all kinds difficult techniques.

If it did exist I would be invisible beating up my friends
Yeah, sure. Tell you what, I will sell you a litre tin of it for only $50.
Reminds me of a guy who did a great joke going off about the bastard who stole his exquisitely painted model, went on for about 5 mins before he said it was the invisible man. Had us all going...

Actually you could... but you would have have to repaint it the model for each new terrain and paint it well, like the best camoflague painter ever...
But clear paint...? MAke a mold of model in question and use clear resin.
I saw this one guys painting stealth suits turning there camo half on and half off. I was so great! Except it wasnt invisible
i think i know what your talking about. my friend told me that a guy made a mold of the stelth suit and cut the figure in half but jagged and filled it with super glue and put the rest of the model in the mold and it looked. i dont have any pictures. you can try that but you it will be hard to get the mold no to stick the super glue. i guess you could coat it in cooking oil or other lubricant and pray it wont stick.
Well without a lot of techniques such as blending I am afraid you won't get a very good clear look. The trick to painting clear is to look at what is around the model and creating the "relections" you would see on the surface. Painting a full sized tau to look clear would be pretty difficult to say the least. It is usually easier with glass jars.Originally Posted by virus646
As others have said casting the pieces in clear resin are your best bet.
