Pooky’s miniature painting tips

Start with pure black on everything.

Then I do pure black + the darkest of whatever color I want. Let’s use Purple as an example. So I do pure black + Regal Purple. Then I paint everywhere except the darkest shadows, where you leave it as Pure Black.

Then I do just Regal Purple. I paint everywhere, but a thin layer of Pure Black, and then Pure Black + Regal Purple.

Then I do Regal Purple + Monarch Purple, and do it again. So it’s almost like you’re running around a race track. Each lap is a new color combo, but the track gets smaller each lap. This provides a smooth transition. Please see illustration to help better understand.

I’m more than HAPPY to provide as much info as you want on my technique. Is there anything additional you want to ask me, or anything I could better explain? I love doing this stuff. Sharing my recipes and techniques makes better painters, which makes the game look better for new players, and they want to start playing more. We all win with better painted stuff.
