Dry Brush is Dry and paitwash is Wet...You can actually use both methods. Wash your figure with warm soapy water and let dry, Paint your figure accordingly. Say your painting him Blue..then mix 1 drop of Darker Blue paint with 2 drops of distilled water . Start at the top of the figure and gently dab the wet brush letting paint run into all crevices, This should bring out a lot of detail, When this is dryed you can use the drybrush method I would use a very light blue or even white and drybrush the raised parts of your figure the end result should be very cool..If it doesn't turn out the eay you like the first time, just paint it again. . This method will work with flesh tones also. Im sure a few of the Experts will walk all over this post, but this is my method LOL. Hope it helps Los.
