    Hello AesirStudio,

    perhaps you tell us, what do want to achieve with the armour? Should it look like green metal? Is is armor with a paint layer on it? What exactly effect this armor shall have?

    Please rate my comments, even if there is critism in it, as a personal point of view. I do not have the absolute truth in minature painting and every word said by me is only a suggestion, that may be thought over or simple ignored. So, happy painting!

    It is I am sure in the eye of the beholder, but I find it easier to blend to a lighter color from darker then other way around. In you case you already have your brightest color up (or so it seems). How do you plan to blend it to a darker color without loosing contrast?

    I apologise, it is armor painted green not green metalic armor. I have tried to blend up from a dark green but I fear that the gradient is not very well done, can anyone give me pointers on moving through the dark to highlight on this sort of thing. I have 6 gradents of the colours wet blended, All but the final highlight at this stage still looks off, also I dont feel like it looks like it should, with a gradient transition should each gradient be evenly spaced or so it still conform entirly to light conditions?

    I see... once again blendings. *smile*

    First of all, there is no difference between highlightning in to dark or to bright colors. *bg*

    But here some advices I have gave somebody else. Btu a little warning. I do my blendings not with wetblending.

    Mix up your gradents with much water ratio aproximatly 1:10. Dipp your brush in it and wipe to amount of the paint, that is to much on a paper towel. The brush should be so dry, that when you paint an two inch line, the first part of the line is already dry, while you have painted the end. The result is, that you dont have borders in the painted stroke, because all the pigments of the colour did not have the time to diffuse in the water.

    To achieve a smooth blending, you do now the following steps. The first of thinned Gradent covers 90% of the surface, the second 80%, the thrid 70%... and so on. make sure, that the direction of your strokes is toward the shadows. I mean vertical to the blending itself. Well that is it for the begin. Repeat this, until the last part is the same colour like you gradent.

    Here you need a little practise until your have envolved "your own way".

    Another question. Do you understand german?
