skin paint

Posted in Custom Workstation

I'm not sure if it's the paint that I'm using or whatnot but does anyone else here have a problem with games workshop flesh paint? the paint dries weird or at least to me it does. at first I thought thin it out with water but I still had the same results. so is this normal with the games workshop flesh or is there another flesh paint that I can use to get a more toy-ish paint application?

I Use Citidal Paints A Bit Pricey But Mix Elf Flesh & Dwarf Flesh Together & It Looks Good Just use A Smooth Palet Like A Cut Off Bottom Of A Water Bottle Or the Cap Or Even A Styrofoam Plate .

I suggest Model Masters Acrilick flesh tones. They go on smooth and loock great.

Try a primer coat first like spray on Krylon Fusion for plastic. That might help a bit.

I don't see why not. you can probably lightly sand the old paint off, heck it's water based so maybe just scrubbing them with a wet towel will help. If not give her fishnets lol.

elf flesh is actually a highlight color according the chart I have. You can use elf flesh but then you coat over it with bronzed and then pallid. Your elf flesh may already be too watered.

see I have been using elf flesh as a base coat for my figure and just doing layers over over it and the way it's drying looks awful... maybe I'm just using a wrong base. I'll have to try some of the other colors you mentioned then.

I have trouble with it on super smooth plastic like wrestler bodies and such. I do 3 layers on everything with the last being really watery. I normally do bronzed flesh, then dwarf flesh, and then elf flesh.
