How to paint leather

Last week we saw how to paint true metallic metals; and today, using the same miniature we will see how to paint different types of leather: black, dark brown and light brown (this recipe can also be used for canvas).  Once again, in the following lines I will describe my own method or recipes to paint leather. But this is not the best (or the worst) method to do it. This is just part of my own style. I would encourage you to check other tutorials and videos to learn different ways to paint leather. And this, you will be able…

How to paint true metallic metals

Following another suggestion, I have prepared a small tutorial featuring how to paint metals (mostly steel). In fact, if you want to see a specific tutorial that I have not covered yet in the blog, just drop me a message! You can see the second part of this post, featuring how to paint leather, here.

However, if these paints are not thinned, they might be too thick and can easily…

Lately, I could not help feeling gutted about this, since over the last years I have learnt a lot…

Painting Warhammer 30.000 Space Marines

My brother wanted me to prepare an easy painting guide to quickly paint his new Warhammer 40K force, the Space Marines (SM) from the chapter World Eaters. My brother specifically wants to use the airbrush to save time, but banned me from doing color modulation because he considers this technique as very complicated and time demanding. Thus, you will find here a simple painting guide for SM.  When I paint one of my Ultramarine warriors, I will prepare another more advance painting guide using color modulation and other techniques learnt from painting vehicles.      After removing the flashes with…
