Step Two: Glaze the entire model with Griphonne Sepia
Step 5: Pick out the other coloured areas with dark angels green and blood red. If you dilute the paints approx. 1 part paint to 1 part water you can use the paint similarly to a more concentrated wash. The paint should not run but be pushed into the crevices with controlled flow from your brush. If done this way the bone colour beneath should be ample enough to provide highlights without applying further colour.
Step 6: Apply a wash of Badab Black to all areas that were previously coloured grey. Remember to control the flow to keep the black wash from running onto other areas of the model. Use a fine detail brush to apply the black wash to smaller less accessible areas on the model.
Step 7: With a fine detail brush pick out the raised edges of the bone armour with a 50/50 mix of bleached bone and skull white. Thin your paint slightly with water to allow the paint to flow off the brush in smooth narrow lines. This can be done easily by running the side of the brush along the hard edges of the model.
Step 8: For these models I’ve decided to go with a glowing eye effect. To do this, first paint the eye and the surrounding area in Swooping hawk turquoise with a little bit of white added to the mix (in my opinion the paint is too dark right out of the pot), apply this in a watered down layer so to glaze the area surrounding the eye reather than painting it. Going in towards the center of the eye highlight with increasing amounts of white paint added to the mix followed by a pure white dot in the very center of the eye.
Step 9: Using a 2:1 mix of white and bleached bone, paint the most extreme highlights on the model. Remember to thin your paint to allow for good flow off your brush to achive the sharpest highlights. After this pick out light source points with a dot of pure white at the center of each highlight.
