I am at a dilemna. I have painted my marines red, and i need their helmets yellow, since they are blood angels assault marines.. is there any possible suggestions on how I may achieve yellow on black primer without much trouble?
I'm pretty much an idiot when it comes to painting.. but how about not glueing the head on and spray painting it seperetelly. If it's already glued on... you've got to options...
1) RIP IT OFF!!!!!:w00t:
2) Use a thin coat of white on it before beginning with yellow.

Yellow on Black = Doesn't Work.
Paint the helmets white first, then yellow. And remember kids, water down paints to the consistency of milk, and build them up layer by layer!

well you can do it this way:
(Water down sligtly all paints so that you can put down very thin layers)
dark brown (scorched)
medium brown (forget name)
light brown (bubonic)

This may sound crazy... but paint tentacle pink before golden yellow... you should get a nice bold yellow after...

This is a good suggestion. If you don't want to go through that many painting steps the other solution would be to paint white ove the black. As long as it mostly covers you should be ok. You should probably do a light brown over the white to give some depth to the yellow though.Originally Posted by F4113N

Where ever possible don't glue on the parts to be yellow. for instance i left my Blood angel assault marine helmets, drilled the bottom of the helmets out and inserted paper clips (lightly glued) I then taped these to a board and sprayed them white. I then painted them on the paper clips.
Quick and perfect bright yellow.
And to make the yellow have a bit more coverage, mix in a smidge of white, so as not to change the colour tone but it does add that mote of pigment needed.
