I was just sitting there with a black primed model in the hand, a brush relaxing between my teeth and Foundation paints in front of me... and I thought to myself... let's give it a try! And I did! The model is just a tester he is not part of an army or anything just thought to make him in these colors... Of course I will try more Foundation colors on other Marines and maybe I can make Rainbow Warriors...
So before any more delay, the results:
I will be waiting for replies and comments and even testings on bizarre colors on testing models!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Well, looking at this, the paint is rather thick - especially looking at the shoulder pads. And the highlights are thick as well. It seems the paint covers well but as advertised, they seem to be best used solely as a basecoat. I don't think using them to paint normally would be a good idea, but I've not tried them, so who knows? The mini itself isn't bad, but I'm sure you could do much better with normal paints. =)
what King said.
Interesting experiment though. I'm betting we can count on seeing a lot of people trying to use the foundation paints in strange ways.
Not much else to add, other than to touch a bit more on something that misanthrope said: Watering your paints (regardless of the brand) is one of those things that should always be done. It allows for superior shading techniques, and for those of us that aren't top notch painters, watered paint is much more forgiving for those situations when you just can't seem to keep the paint on the right part of the model.
