I'm not sure what wash to use to acheive a good effect on my Stegadons horns. I am not trying to make the model look pro painted just battle ready I have the wash set so price is not an object
Got any ideas?
Devlan mud would be the go, it will definitely help to have at least a bit of highlighting in place though. Start with scorched brown, and highlight most of the horn with bleached bone, done some minor fine highlighting with skull white if you want then throw devlan mud on. If it looks too messy or dark, touch up with bleached bone
The way you use your brushstrokes makes a huge difference with horns.
Basecoat - medium to dark brown/beige
1st coat - light brown - paint from bottom of the horn straight up to the horns points...long straight lines.
Wash Devlan Mud
1st Highlight - Bleached Bone - leave some of your darker browns showing but same brush stroke up to point of horn...keep lines thin
Watered Down Devlan mud wash
2nd Highlight - Skull White - fine detail brush...tiny highlights same long straght stroke to point.
This will give you a great look to your large horns.
ah right, I've already done a scorched brown undercoat and bleached highlight. I'll wash with mud from there and see how it goes, rep for you guys!
