Making it Nurgly, one glaze at a time...

We have returned to Cathy's fun fest with the Ultraforge demon.  As you saw in the original post, she did her take on the Shaded Basecoat technique, and then began defining areas with glazes.

Once she had made those initial washes into the open sores and other crevices, it was time to work on what 'skin' there was.  She tried out a new glaze color I had picked up months ago, but had not tried out myself... the Waywatcher green.

Now she is getting that second type of contrast.  First there is value contrast, the difference between light and dark.  Now she establishes color contrast by juxtaposing the greens and reds directly opposite of each other.

She wanted to hit the bandages and other items that needed weathering.  Since red and green together make brown, you only need to add in a touch of yellow to get something nice and icky!!!

You can see how she is making maximum use of the palette, presenting a whole array of colors for her to choose from right away, instead of having to stop and mix a new color over and over.

He's really starting to take shape, even at this relatively early stage.

You can see just how quickly she can establish even more contrast in critical areas with the supplemental applications of washes and glazes.  Very targeted, very controlled.

Looking nice and nasty so far!  I wonder what she has in mind as a base...
