During Hussar 2011 competition – the greatest Polish painting contest (22.10.2011) - there were some painting classes done by such a great artists as Ana and Camelson. I have had to prepare some minis for classes participants (thanks to using projector during this workshop, everybody was able to try shown technics on his own).
I’ll present a fast tutorial showing how you can paint a really good zenithal basecoat on your minis.
1) A solid black basecoat done with a can. It’s much faster than using airbrush.
- you can use different colours, try cold/warm colours for priming. It’s how you can create a general cold/warm effect on the whole mini.
- personally, I prefer to make lighten areas quite big. On light primer you can paint some saturated colours and nice glazes.
