Start with black, and use dry-brushing techniques for high-lites....... The Citadel artists can give you many pointers...
Thanks Dan, I know the process it just looks terrible on such a small scale and with the dark grey paint...all metallics tend to look like glitter! I have a few more ideas from 40 years ago I may try on some scrap and will post progress, or just tell that OCD part of me to "shut-it" !!
You are very welcome! As it stands, for now, the only parts that have been airbrushed is the main body. The engine and wheels sprayed with a cheap can of Flat Black waterbased acrylic, Walmart special. Everything else is with fine camel hair brushes .25" flats and slants, then several very small round brushes and what is called a "single hair brush", about the size of a pinpoint! In the beginning, I talked about how I came up with the paint for this and I would ask that you search back and find that, as it is an interesting story, with links!Truly great work.
What is your painting technique this small? Airbrush and acrylics?
Thanks for sharing.
