    Washes

    I have been playing Sisters of Battle fo a short time now, and decided to paint them mainly white. Originaly the gray shadows turned out chalky... so I decided to approach it differently.

    What I planned to do was spray them white and then 'dip' them in a jar/ glass of water with gray paint in it. It seemed to work, as the shadows were neatly painted gray. But when I came back to check on how they dryed, the were pure white! I was shocked, and tried this process a couple more times with the ssame result. Finaly I discovered that the wash had been sliding off.

    I was wondering if anyone had any idea on how to make it stick!

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Try adding more black to the wash, instead of dipping, brush it on. your model might not be as white anymore but give it a couple of v.light drybrushings of white. Had to paint some Eldar for my younger bro a while ago, found it worked well.
    One is not to question why, but to do and die.

    One thing you could try is using a varnish of some sort rather then water, something with some adhesion. The "dipping" technique works on the same principle you're describing. Go with a very dark varnish, thin it out with some turpintine or mineral spirits and go from there.

    Otherwise, painting it with some minwax floor wax could work..
