Whenever I'm painting, I find the brush I'm using doesn't completely cover the figure. When I paint over it again, though, the brush ends up picking up paint already on the model, revealing even more of the undercoat. Naturally, this is very annoying and time consuming. What's the best way to prevent this from occuring?
Well, before I can answer your question i need to know what your question means as I and many others dont understand it, I will answer once you have explained a bit more clearly what you mean. :hmm:
The gold grey knight man. These are hardy men who like cheese.
Ever thought of how cheese was found?:
`` I say sah, the milk in this barrel smells foul!``
``Oooohhh, give it a go!``
''Quack, damn you!''

Let me try to give an example.
I'm painting one of the termagants from Battle for Macragge as practice. When I paint the tail red, I find that part of the tail wasn't properly painted, and I still can see the primer quite easily. So, I paint over it again. This time, even more of the primer is visible. The brush picked up some paint from the model. This happens even if I redipped the brush.
So, how do I stop this from occuring. Should I wait for the paint on the model to dry first?
you will have to wait for the paint to dry inbetween thin coats of paint.
try painting a few models at a time.
paint a coat on one, set it down and paint another model while that one drys. Then go back and do another coat on the first model after it has dried.
hope that helps.
Yeah. Thin coats.
If there's so much paint that the brush is removing more than it is laying down, your coats are too thick.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
As already stated the most likely reason is the paint hasn't dried yet. Let it dry and try again. As for thick or thin paint - both will do what you are describing if the paint isn't dry yet. I have found that is really happens with the more transparent colors - ie, yellow, the lighter red, etc.

I've experimented with all of your advice and found it solved the problem quite nicely. Thanks, everyone!
