Ok guys, 1st lot of pics up, Madcap386's handpainting demo! This is the digested version. I think the video is ultimately, a lot more comprehensive than what I have managed to take.

[Image: handpaint001.jpg]
Stuff we will be working on. A Keroro head and some other spare parts from unused Gundam kits.

[Image: handpaint002.jpg]
Tools of the trade. A flat tip brush and two round brushes for detail painting. A good brush is important but that does not mean brushes that cost an arm and leg. Good quality brushes can be had for as little as $3-$4 each.

[Image: handpaint003.jpg]
First, this is how we would normally dip our brushes to handpaint right? Try not to do it that way as it does not really get the bulk of the paint's essence, just the "carrier" even after stirring.

[Image: handpaint004.jpg]
We should always maintain our brushes and keep them clean. Dip them in washing thinner then use a clean kitchen towel or tissue to wipe off any residue. This helps keep the washing thinner relatively clean too.

[Image: handpaint005.jpg]
Thin the paint with a few drops of thinner. If the paint is overthinned, just leave the cap open to allow thinner to evaporate. You won't know if it's too thin till you have stirred the paint and done a test paint.

[Image: handpaint006.jpg]
Brush a test strip over plain paper. It should not look like the above (too thin and watery, causing see through effects)

[Image: handpaint007.jpg]
It should look like this, pretty even in coverage. If the paint is too thin, try sticking your whole brush in the paint bottle and stirring it a little more.

[Image: handpaint008.jpg]
Visualise your model kit's surface as sections of shapes that you paint, sort of like paint the numbers that you used to do as a child. Finish each section before moving on to the next.

[Image: handpaint009.jpg]
When finished, it should look like this. Leave it aside to dry, do not be tempted to even out any irregularities when it's drying. If there are, sort it out after the paint has dried completely. If done correctly, there should be little to no brush strokes.

[Image: handpaint010.jpg]
If the paint dries too quickly or thickens too quickly, a few drops of Mr Retarder should slow down the drying process.

It is important to keep your brush moving and not try to paint over the same area too many times. This can cause underlying primer or paint to be stripped off.

More demo pics next. Shower time!
I am blunt not because I am mean but because I hope others can be blunt with me. Only through brutal honesty can we seek to improve ourselves. Pulling punches and sugar-coating does not work.
Next up, Spriggan's demo, sponge chipping!

The kit was painted using lacquer paint (Gunze Mr Color) and the chipping done with Vallejo acrylics, after applying a top coat over the kit to protect it. This allows any mistakes to be easily wiped off with water, protecting the painted kit.

[Image: sponge001.jpg]
You want to achieve something like this.

[Image: sponge002.jpg]
Tools of the trade. A simple sponge like those you use to wash dishes with, a clip and a tweezer to act as a holder and keep the sponge in place. A palette to mix your chipping colour with and a brush to mix the paints and water together.

[Image: sponge003.jpg]
Use a brush to apply the paint to the sponge rather than dip the whole sponge into the paint. This has the advantage of preventing the sponge from being overloaded with paint.

[Image: sponge004.jpg]
Study where the chips ought to be (edges, places where human contact is high such as edges of doors, handles etc)

i was reminded by sprigaan's sponge weathering method that i used many years ago for an aircraft. same tecnology except i used the green side instead of the yellow.

first do the splinter camo, then mask off

followed by dabbing with the green paint and all over the light blue. essentially same as what sprigaan did, but only more random and less controlled.

this was the camo for helmut wick's bf-109E, which was one of the highest scoring pilots in the start of battle of britain, and the completed kit and diorama won a consolation at tamiyacon 2007
