Sword and Shield

This was an interesting experiment in utilizing the combination of Badger Airbrush Ghost Tints and the Secret Weapon weathering paints.

I was able to set up a variety of interesting color shifts while doing the "primer painting" phase by adding a few drops of ghost tint to the primers.

From there, I was able to work off those initial tones with several glazes of the Secret Weapon paints, mostly in the "rust" range, and the wood weathering colors.

The last piece of the puzzle was the Reaper Clear paints, which helped to enhance those glazes with even more intensity.  The Clear Blue was used on the sword, while the Clear Purple made an excellent dark tone when mixed with the Secret Weapon Rust colors.

As usual, I had fun with the Object Source Lighting, and doing a bit of freehand on the shield.

Check out the Secret Weapon paints, which has now expanded to over 30 colors!  I will continue to do more facebook live sessions utilizing those.  You can get the Badger primers and Ghost tints here, and if you use the discount code "Wappellious", that will be a 42% discount.
