    OK how to paint yellow:

    1, undercoat white (spray ususally)
    2, paint yellow (you will probably get a smeared effect at this point, dont worry to much about it, if it is really bad do a second coat, but otherwise
    3. wash with a thinned orange or even red ink
    4. repaint yellow (several coats leaving the darker ink in the recesses
    5/6. highlight in yellow mixed with white, eventually highlighting the very edges in white and wash with yellow ink, the order of the wash and highlights can be changed depending on what result you are trying to achieve
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    When I have to paint yellow over a black surface I will lay down a few coats of brown. After, I put on layers of watered down yellow. Do not try to cover the entire area with the yellow, but an area where a concentration of yellow can be built up. When it is dry I lay down yellow in another area. It will take several layers to build up to its true color.

    This can be done over any color with good results.

    Personally, i always reundercoat the area white if I'm painting yellow, adding layers untill its a nice, smooth white. Then paint it yellow, and wash with a 50/50 mix of yellow and brown ink. Then rehighlight with yellow.

    For some reason, brown seems to work when painting yellow on dark surfaces. Normaly I would put on thin layers of yellow until I had a smooth coat of yellow over the area. White also works in most cases.

    First off, if you hate yellow so much, change to a different army that doesn't use yellow.

    For yellows, always undercoat white, it will save your life. Then paint the yellow on it. It might look patchy, i think a few layers will help.

    For yellow? Prime in white. Spay whole figure yellow with air brush. Paint non-yellow parts.

    That's the only way I've ever had any luck with yellow.
