ok, i've been getting a lot of pm's accross the boards asking how i paint red, and its about time i shared my secret with you.
As you can see i've painted a lot of red in a short space of time to good consistent levels...
Recent projects like my red terrorr i acheived this with an airbrush, but not everyone has access to an air brush.
Stage 1. Black Undercoat.
Undercoat your mini black, touch up missed areas with black paint.
Stage 2. Materials.
I use Vellajo Game Colour paints, plus my secret mixing ingredient, which apart from a few people knew i used, until now! A bottle of Irn Bru.
Stage 3. Mixing.
Mix a few drops of Irn Bru into red gore. And apply to the model, should take 2 coats.
Stage 4. 2nd Shade - blood red.
Now mix Irn Bru into blood red. You should notice a little fizzing, once this has died down the chemical reaction has worked, you will now notice when you paint it on an increased vibrancy, and a slight opaqueness which aids blending, but heres the clever part, it still covers dark colours really well, this is due to the artificial colouring in the Irn Bru!
Stage 5. 3rd Shade - Blazing Orange
Repeat Stage 4 but with orange. Just look at the results!
Thats all folks.
you add a few drops of a soft drink to your paints? amazing.... the ingenuity...

can i ask how you actually thought something like that up..?
Fantastic idea, but rather interesting. =P
he also adds milk to his white
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Lol no i don't!
in all seriousness i'm a graphic designer with an art and design background, its in my nature to experiment. You see a liquid with a colour to it and you think outside the box and wonder if it has any properties to it that would enhance your colours. irn bru worked.
So does Sunny delight for yellows. I've not actually tried milk though...
To bad they don´t sell irn bru around here but i will try some other softdrinks

Tell me...what is Irn Bru exactly? Perhaps we have something similar around here. (I know it's a soft drink but...ehm...what flavor? )
I really like the depth that the model gets with this technique. Now to search for airbrush tutorials and get some soda!

That is amazing. I am definitely going to be trying that out at some point in the near future :yes:
