    Dipping questions, use on Banshees

    So ya, I want to dip my banshees. Now let me explain. I want to use a black polymer, on white models. I want to give my banshees a shadowy-look, like something floating above their actual armor and what not.

    my idea is to primer the banshee white, yellow eyes, paint hair blood red with blazing orange highlights, paint extra bits. Not big detail.

    THEN dip in grey or black polymer, wring off excess. I am working for dark translucent look.

    What do you think? yea or nay? not good idea?

    Like Cypher said do a test, take some cheap old model paint it like you said and then dip it and if the result turns out good do the same with the banshees. Take a model that has a similar body to a banshee. Good luck!

    Maybe you should ask some regular dippers on the forum via pms??
    It's fast , but looks crappy imho.
    I prefer regular painting.

    As far as the look goes, you will never actually know until you do it.
    As for the techniquie, I'd probably say it will be quicker to simply paint the ink on, not to mention far more controllable.

    I think that plain black shading tends to look bad...it's preferable if there's some color to it...brown, bluish-black, something like that. Makes it look more interesting. So I'd suggest picking something 'off-black' given the option.

    I will give it a try. I think it would look nice, as well as save time.

    I agree about not using black, go for either grey or maybe a deep purple. Not flat black though.

    Look forward to seeing a tester.
