Your washes are superb. What kind of paint do you use and what is your liquid ratio to get the desired effect? I have trouble determining the sweet spot for proper application.
Very well done. They positively glow.
Vast majority of my paints are games workshops citadel paint range. My spray cans are all from the army painter range however.
Generally I’ll try and use a spray as the color to work from. the citadel range of washes are amazing, They do most of the hard work for me anyway so all Im really doing is blocking flat colours.
Aircraft seem to benefit the most from actual painting detail and that’s generlly roundels and other markings… There’s not really much use for washes on aircraft since the pieces look the best with a smooth look since the eyes drawn to The roundels… Although I did use washes on my Finnish planes to help me get the shade of green I wanted…
Ships really benefit from some drybrushing since the sharp edges of most sculpts can really make the most of the technique. Most of my ships started as the same shade of spray grey before been washed up to change the shade or dry brushed down to lighten it.
Infantry and ground units I mostly just use the spray colour as a base then pick out boots/guns/belts in a suitable shade of brown… I always water down my paints even though this may mean doing a few coats to get the right shade. Next step i wash the whole piece with a citadel Wash, there’s 4 different washes I choose from depending on what I want the final piece to look like. Once that dries I pick out the skin and paint the base… Which takes quite a few coats generally since I want it to look like flat like cast plastic rather than something that’s been painted.
