Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer on my scratchbuilt #Tyranid Void Shield Generator. I'm onto the pink veins and decided to try my Valejo Model Color Flourescent Pink. I had been a little miffed with this the first time I used it, as it is in no way opaque, but was willing to give it another go
Well as you can see, it is not pink. It goes on pink, but once dry it all it appears to have done is make my Khorne Red become Vermillion - the irony!
It became apparent to me that this pink was not going to work over a darker paint.
Here you can see a second coat of pink, freshly applied and then dry
In some respects like Tamiya Clear Red X-27 it's almost like a pink glaze. So I went bold and on top of the red did pure white highlights as a test. Then added the pink on top and it started to show as pink.
So I highlighted the lot of them [but still held my breath].
All the veins.
And the emitter stalk too.
By this time my original paint had already dried into this vermillion.
Just look at it next to this fresh blob of paint.
And you can see the pink has dried pink, thanks to the white underpainting.
Next stop, add some white and highlight the little veins!
