One part of painting I've always struggled with is slowing blending colours to transition from one to another. It never seems to turn out right for me. (For example going from orange to red for flames)
Does anyone know any tricks or secrets that could help me go about this effectively?
Thanks for any tips you can provide!
The latest White Dwarf has a article on wet blending, and it shows some good steps. I beleive it is US White Dwarf 297(?).
WD 297? they are over 300 now i think, maybe even in the 320's.....

do you mix the paints? do you water them down? do you use glazes, what color do you start from? etc
if i were to transition a red to an orange id start from black, and go from brown, adding IN reds, until i get a nice red, then start to add blazing orange to each layer, and if the transition isnt quite right, id mix a 60-40 red to orange glaze and bring it inline again and work up through into the orange again,
remember wet blending is just about the hardest trick to master....
