Brush streaks

Postby Foxdie » Sun Mar 31, 2013 10:01 pm

Hey I am using Model Color acrylic paints. My problem is when ever using light colors I can not seem to get rid of brush streaks. How can I prevent this? I sand and prewash all my figures. Any help will be much appreciated ^^.

Try watering down the paint a bit to thin it out, also using thinner layers of paint might help.
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

Thanks so much. Never painted skin tones before. Both methods helped me out. Also kinda experimented a tad and found running a wet brush over it after it starts drying helps smooth it out as well. Thanks again for the fast and helpful responses =D.
