Sorry for all of the newbie questions...
What is the proper way to apply an ink wash? Do you "drybrush" it or do something else? It seems to be that even drybrushed the color goes on a bit thick.
FYI - I just want to use it to shade some dark angels models.
I avoid the use of inks, they give nasty glossy sheens to your work and they don't cover areas smoothly.
People use inks to aid their blending and to add fast shading to their minis.
You don't drybrush inks you water them down and paint it on in single strokes. Don't keep running the brush through it. If trying to cover a large area, use a large brush. Also be careful overlapping ink layers as it thickens and lessens the opacity creating join lines.
I get by completely without using inks.
Some things inks work well on i think, mostly skin and organics ie: kroot, nids, orcs... i don't use them at all for anything with lots of flat surfaces like tau or marines as it can leaves alot of blemishes, but then again im no master painter... the only advice i can give is make sure your ink is well watered down or maybe use some type of thinner
Water down inks, dont drybrush just apply, with these inks, add water if you want less colour, the more water, the less the colour will show.

Ever thought of how cheese was found?:

``Oooohhh, give it a go!``
''Quack, damn you!''
