Only had a little time so whacked on some base colors on the dwarf warband- plus a few loose figures in need of similar colors.
The basecoating process is far less painful to me now I have forsaken water in favor of windex.
Windex you say?
Yes. Windex. As in My Big Fat Greek Wedding Windex.
Windex dilutes paint without destroying surface adhesion and evaporates quickly- so it sticks to your model in a thin layer, then dries. Therefore you can apply several thin coats in quick succession. The first bit of paint is literally dry by the time you finish coloring in the last bit. Windex allows the paint to flow off the brush easily, and is really cheap. Windex can also reinvigorate drying acrylics. Give your wet palette a windex spritz under your baking paper and marvel how it doesn't go moldy. Yep. You heard it here first kiddies.
The blue tint evaporates leaving your colors exactly as you mixed them. Bless it. However- if you want to spend money, however, buy vallejo airbrush medium. It is basically windex without the blue in it. Don't believe me? Give it a sniff.
Windex has been used as a thinner in airbrush art for donkey's years. Though I would definitely wear a gas mask. Are you my mommy?
I layed out a quick pass of black, leather brown, vermin brown and flesh. But now I must sleep. Good night, whatever you are.
