Well I know plenty about dipping however I feel it sometimes silly to have to pour a ton of miniwax or polyurathan into a bucket/container to get large models such as carnifexes or winged hive tyrants with their wings already on.
Is this the way you all do it or is there another technique?
Why not just slop it on with a large brush?
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
What about puting it (the figure) into an CLEAN Oil Tray (the kind that have slits in the top and a cap on the bottom to drain it. so that excess stain goes into the container and flows easily off, and still gives you the dipped look and lets you easily pour it back into the can.
Funny you should bring this up here, i was just about to post about it.
I just did my first batch of large models (Tyranid Warriors). What i did was dilute 4 parts minwax with 1 part paint thinner, took a #4 brush that i wasn't using, and painted it on like a wash. Turned out quite nice, and was really quick as well.
The nice things about painting it on were:
a) no spinning / shaking necessary (heavy models don't spin well )
b) i could correct where it was going really easily.
c) it took LESS time then dip + spinning
They ended up a little lighter then my gaunts (dipped in undiluted minwax) so i might add a second coat, but the results are quite nice, and it's a lot less messy
