Lo - just a quick tip on something I started doing lately - premixing my highlights for my marines. Now this is really only any good if you have a lot of the same colour peeps to paint, but having marines - this is what I get all the time.
All I did was buy 3 empty pots, a syringe and then worked out the capacity of each pot, the percentage mixes I needed and divided one into the other. I now have all three highlights I use for the blue side of my marines ready mixed.
A quick, simple and cheap method of shaving a huge ammount of time off your painting Makes production line stuff easier as well.
Hope it helps
By highlights do you mean inks?
Sorry about my noobiness; I've never used them before so don't know anything about them.
lo - thinking about it I *actually* mean any colours you have to mix up yourself - it's just as I paint so many space marines, and all the custom colours I make are for highlights - I just said that.
The principle of course applies to anything you have to regulary mix up - I even added the right amount of water to these so I tend to paint straight from the pot - saving even more time
By highlightlights it means using paints, to create a shine effect on models through the use of various progress of colors towards white, i.e. blue, blue with a minut amount of white, blue with a litte bit more white, and so on to white with a tinge of blue, layered over each other to create an effect of reflection.Originally Posted by PaRaSiTe_X92
Thanks both of you. You have enlightened me (in an evil kind of way)
Sounds like a great idea though. Thanks.
