The little mushrooms are so cool. I love the color scheme on this one. Yellow is such a nice base color to use=)

I guess it is just practice and small brushes ^-^

A steady hand, tiny brushes. Layers? actualy what tupe of paint do you use? ive often wondered, just Acrylic? (sp?) or oils? or um..guache? do you use a satin paint additive? or gloss overcoat? *rummages through art supplies* im trying my own customs and one turned out..sticky? I bought model spraypaint a pearlized overcoat and..its sticky *sigh*

I actually just use acrylic paints... never heard of a satin paint additive. I guess my symbols are built up in layers because using a small brush (000 or 0000) only allows a small amount of pain to be applied. I have only ever once used a spray sealent coat and that came out sticky so I avoid that, which is partly the reason why I never do full body repaints. I purchased a games workshop 'Ardcoat (gloss varnish) if I want a glossy finish on an emblem. Hope this helps.

So ffor your full repaint you still use Acrylic? Because my re-paint of sparkler went downhill, the paint is al lumpy/streaky..the brush left textures, im not sure what I did wrong. Its a little frustraiting....would you suggest drybrushing the layers on? Im not sure what to do about my sticky pony, I might try paint over the sticky with Acrylic, and hopefuly it wont raise the bottom layer...the pearlized gloss did look nice though. I think ive lost my smaller brushes, so I might invest in getting replacements, as im supposed to paint models with my partner too. lol

No, like I said, I never do full body repaints. My one attempt put me off. The pony sealed sticky and I never tried to fix it, just scrapped it. If you want advice on full body re-paints I suggest you look at [link] and ask around. Small brushes are must however for symbol painting and definately worth the investment.

I hope you don't mind my saying this, but I thought I'd mention that I heard about Testers dullcoat spray sealer from Popgirl. I have been using it on my airbrushed customs to seal them and have been totally happy with it. No stickiness at all unlike most spray sealers I've tried. I highly recommend it

So you work on white bodies? I found a website that showed how to dye the pony..then I had a bad dream I fell into a boiling dye pan with a big brother and got dyed XD
Thankyou for the link :)
