Check out this sword...

It's interesting to note that miniatures tend to have the most unusual sizes and shapes of swords!  

Some of them can be shapes that are not always the easiest to paint.  This one was certainly a challenge.

Since the surface was so broad, I did have a chance to use many different color combinations across it in order to keep it more interesting.  Lots of muted reddish browns to keep it reflecting the environment around it.

A bit of Powder

This figure was originally used for one of the Painting Pryamid videos that focused on using weathering powders for painting a figure, as opposed to just plain weathering.

Here's a link to a post that showed the process of the video.  What's interesting about using the powders is that all of the colors are going to be much more muted than regular paint.

It's not very easy, but with the use of rubbing alcohol to turn it into a 'paint', and the Secret Weapon fixer, the results were quite interesting!
