Building the Heart of Darkness, part 2
Posted by docryder
So, even though it was pretty wet out today, I managed to get the base coat of paint on the model. As expected, a lot of it soaked into the paper. However, I’ve been using a new paint, the P3 base spray paints by Privateer Press. They have a very different consistency than the Games Workshop paints I’ve been using. GW paints are a bit thick, and when I used them on papers in the past, they’ve left a layer on top, and strengthened the paper. The P3 paint is almost like an ink. In fact, I accidentally sprayed it on my hand today (didn’t remember how the different spray nozzle worked), and it ran like water across my hand. So, the model isn’t really any heavier walled than it was. I’m a little disappointed with that.
So, now that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is over, and before Person of Interest gets rolling, I’ll be trying to get the red tones going I want on the model. Time to get out the tank brush and start rolling. I’ve got to get as much going as I can as I finally have some work this week, as of tomorrow.
