I need help painting purity seals, i find that the seal itself is realy easy to paint but the partchment itself is a pain (along with the writing), i've tried a whole bunch of different ways of painting it including the bleached bone method but i still can't get the results i'm looking for, also it would help if the way you suggest is quick and simple (relatively speaking)
By the wayI'm painting these seals on PAGK and GKT
Any help would be much appreciated:yes: ,Thanks
straight bleached bone, then half bleached bone, half white, then full white for highlights. it's that simple(or hard. then, use the thinnest brush you can find and water down your paint, then paint some lines. i've heard that fine tipped pens work, but i wouldn't experiment until you are more skilled.
thanks for that
i really appreciate that
I personally base with bleached bone, wash with thinned brown ink, then rehighlight with bleached bone up to skull white. AS for how they look on GK's, here is a pic of one of my GKT whose seals and scrolls were done the same way.
Hope that helps

For the last time, there are
NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
HEre's my method, does wonders.
Base of Beasty brown (Vallejo), top off with the bone colour in a solid block. Use a slightly larger brush to avoid strokes.
Thin down black paint, and, using a bity brush, do lil scribblies for texts. Alternatively, red works wonders too.

I do like this:
Basecoat with Bestial Brown,
Highlight with Desert Yellow,
Highlight with Bleached Bone.

I base in white, the cover in bleached bone highlight in skull white with a little bleached bone then use the edge of a flat brush and dip the very dip into black, wipe it off like you were dry brushing then just swipe the brush over the parchment in slow strokes, the slight tremor of your hands as you do this adds to the "written" effect of the "lettering"
I usually just go with the Bestial Brown - Bleached Bone method, and a little tiny dab of chestnut ink afterwards. Makes the parchment look all ancient and tea-stained. For the writing I usually don't bother on the normal troopers, for the sergeants/ Justicars I use black ink.
I do that the same way as RJsuperfreaky. It works really well, just make sure you thin the chestnut ink somewhat.
Beware the Agapanthers!

thanks to everyone who gave their advice and i will most likely be trying out each of these when time allows,
