Painting white

Post by Phil69 » Tue Sep 25, 2012 12:08 pm

Hi

Am expermenting with painting some front rank 28 figures and only having previously painted 15mm am struggling with painting white on trousers etc.

Have just got a foundry triad to give that a go but would be interested to hear what combinations of Vallejo people use.

Cheers

Hi Phil,

I think to remember that Martin aka msk has done some experiments with the Andrea White Paint set on his website http://befreiungskriege.wordpress.com/2 ... er-chores/

Hope that helps

I use Reaper 09062 Leather White as the shade, Vallejo 70820 Offwhite as the main color, and Vallejo 70842 Gloosy White as the highlight.

I like a fairly grubby look -

Base coat = Vallejo German Camouflage Beige (821)

Mid colour = Vallejo Game Colour "Bone White" (34) + a little white

Then progressive amounts of white added to "Bone White" up to the desired finish. I rarely finish anything in pure white.

(All on a white Humbrol enamel undercoat incidentally)
