Pennies from heaven

The metal painting continued, this time with one of my favorite Raging Heroes characters.  As always, they are sculpted supremely well, and the casting is fantastic!  It makes creating a video like this one a much more pleasant task :-)

They always begin with that shaded basecoat...

And then get those all important glazes and washes.  A whole row of them from Secret Weapon.  They have a kickstarter under way right now, I believe... Angry Sheep?

Once those glazes, shades and tints are complete, the mini certainly looks different!

But wait, there's more!  Time for the Verdigris effect!!!!!!!1

And then complete.

I can't say thank you enough to the folks at Raging Heroes.  There would not be any of these videos without their skill, kindness and support!!

Yellow Alert

Time to get the most from you yellows!

This was one of the specifically requested video topics.  It seems like everyone had a rough time with yellow.

Yellow can actually be lots of fun, especially when you 'expand the range' of yellows beyond  the typical sunburst yellow that comes to mind right off the bat.

Some leaves on the base as a starting exercise...

Even the glazes ran the gamut of yellow!

A sketch of the amber gemstone...


So, lots of information presented once again, hopefully in a digestible form.

With props!
