    I recently started using Vallejo Umber Wash for painting flesh. It's pretty dark reddish-brown, but I like the look and contrast. You have to play with how thin to make it based on the flesh tone...

    That's true, but to get a full experience you need to sample the whole line, or at least a good portion of it. One or two colors might not be representative of other colors in the line. A white can...

    Varnish

    After someone on here suggested it, I tried using matte varnish as a basecoat, and I\'m really liking it!

    Simple Green

    Soak the mini in simple green for 8 hours. The paint will just slough off, and SG is non-toxic and biodegradable.

    I\'ve actually used model glue in this role. Just put it where you want and stretch it out, leaving it \"stringy.\" I did a set of Geiger\'s Aliens with that on them and they looked pretty good.
