The Sarge

Time for another of the Smurf Termies.  I am not quite sure when the next experiment in metallics might be, but there are a few projects that are candidates.

I will be curious to see how all that would turn out.  For the moment, I would assume that terrain will continue to be the testing ground.

Another view of the squad...

Shiny too...

Years ago, I had a task to match some Smurfs, which was a little unusual.  I had to use metallic paints in some limited ways, which was certainly different for me!

I found that a lot of what I was doing with my glazes could be transferred to the very alien type of paint.  It would certainly not me my first choice of material, since as a 'regular' two dimensional painter, there are no such things as metallic paint.

Since then, I have used metallic on other limited projects.  I have taken to mixing them with regular paints, especially on terrain pieces.  This gives some interesting results!
