  • Taralen8 månader sedan#73035272That is very good advice. Thanks!
    I also wanted to know how long should I wait between coats of enamel paint. I know it tends to be rather dry to the touch, and I did watch a kit builder just spray a clear coat rather quickly after, so I want to know how long I need to let it sit before I paint the rest .


    That's fair, I honestly did it once it was dry then an hour or so after. Never straight after as I never got to it though haha. Be careful when spraying the lacquer as if you flood the piece too much it can blur the detail. I just remembered this blog series that was awesome in explaining this process. mikatan.goodsmi...

    Toshki8 månader sedan#72904854I'd be worried about that being a bit too much. I usually add like a drop or two to a small amount of paint. You'll need to play around a bit to get it right. It's easy to clean up on a glossy surface.
    That's the other thing, you should put down a gloss layer wherever you use enamel as it makes it easier to wipe. You can even use gloss to "save". I like to spray a gloss coat (lacquer) between colours so I don't accidentally blend them. You can use it to paint the outside of the eye, gloss coat, inside of the eye, gloss coat, eye shine, final coat. That's the way I do it anyway. I need to do a blog do I can explain it better ^^

    Taralen8 månader sedan#72897069Thanks for the advice. I watched a video of a guy handbrushing Testors and he used a 1:1 ratio. Would this be enough? Please advise. :)

    galablue8 månader sedan#72896093this might not be what you want to hear but i actually kind of like her overall blue tone. i'm not familiar with the character but i feel like her blue-ish apron reminds me of in super smash brothers when you're picking different colored outfits and they're all kind of one tone, so it's like a "recolor" of her actual outfit in my mind. if you hadn't pointed it out, i would never have noticed!

    Hahaa actually I thought the EXACT same thing. It's blue team Sakuya! XD
    Glad you like it though. My friends seem to like the blue shade too even though it was an error on my part.

    Toshki8 månader sedan#72877002I use Tamiya personally and testors for their gorgeous gold. I usually thin them a tiny bit. About as much as acrylics. I don't really get streaks though as I've only ever used them for eyes and small details like buttons. Hope that helps though~

    Toshki8 månader sedan#72876929Awh adorable~~~ amazing especially for your second kit ^^
    Btw are you using lacquer for everything except the details? You can use enamels for details instead of acrylic so if you use enamel thinner over the enamel paint, you can clean up the edges of the enamel paint without affecting the lacquer underneath. It's how Japanese painters are able to get such clean lines~
    Just as a tip. Your eyes on her are so cool~


    Thanks!
    Also what kind of enamel paint would be best for hand painting? I tried with testors but I still got streaks, hence why I just went with acrylics instead. I would like to do more with my enamels but I'm not sure what ratio to use for thinning it.
