    Some basic colour mixing in this video on how to make the most vibrant pinks. Using a pure magenta colour mixed with white will produce the truest pinks, and still retain the saturation without looking too pastel.

    I also cover and explain 'Overbrushing' and the best ways to go about using the technique.




    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Base - 70/30 Mix of Morrow White + Murderous Magenta
    Highlight 1- 80/20 Mix of Morrow White + Murderous Magenta
    Highlight 2 - 90/10 Mix of Morrow White + Murderous Magenta
    Highlight 3 - Add a few more Drops of Morrow White to the previous highlight mix.
    Final shade - Thinly Glaze a Mix of Murderous Magenta + a few drops of Sanguine Base into the shadows and anywhere you want extra depth or contrast.

    A quick little video that teaches the painter some tips for painting make-up. When you need a sultry or seductive look for your female miniatures, make-up always helps.


    This requires a steady hand, but as long as you can apply thin paint, and hold the brush still, any painter can do this.




    All paints used are Formula P3 by Privateer Press, unless stated otherwise.


    Lips:
    Base - 75/25 Sanguine Base + Ryn Flesh
    Highlight 1 Add a few drops of Morrow White to the Base
    Highlight 2 - Add a few more drops of Morrow White to Highlight 1


    Cheek Blush:
    Mix a thin glaze of a 75/25 mix of Ryn Flesh + Sanguine Highlight


    Eyeshadow:
    Mix a thin glaze of a 75/25 Mix of Ryn Flesh + Bastion Grey
    Inner Eye - Add a few drops of Meredius Blue to the previous mix.


    If the skin is darker, lighter, or a different colour, use your base flesh colour to mix in with the various colours.
    Experiement a bit, as make-up can be used to create more or less contrast, and intensify, and create colour harmonies.

    Some basic steps to follow for painting hair that is long and black. I also cover some extra tips on colour theory, and how to apply it when painting hair.

    I've yet to cover hair that is long, and this video sets up all the principles to apply when painting hair that is longer than shoulder length.

    Base - Thamar Black
    Highlight 1 - Coal Black
    Highlight 2 - Gravedigger Denim
    Highlight 3 - 50/50 mix of Gravedigger Denim + Frostbite
    Highlight 4 - 25/75 mix of Gravedigger Denim + Frostbite

    This video continues on from the previous two in the series. If you need to watch them, they can be found at the links below:


    Complimentary Colours - https://youtu.be/4qPwmiPo7h4
    Analagous & Triadic Harmonies - https://youtu.be/r9g9wVi1vEg


    This video delves into some more science based colour mixing, and which colours to use in order to do-so.
    A large portion is then devoted to exploring contrast using tone, and colour. Towards the end of the video I show some models and discuss how the theory explained in the video would apply to certain models I have painted.

    One of my most-used and favourite greens.
    I'm giving away my secret formula here folks, so I hope at least that's of some value. :P
    This quick tip is a bit longer, as there was too much good, two brush blending footage to just discard.

    For those of you looking for a complete demo, and guide for two brush blending, this is it. The two views from above the model, and from the side of the desk, allow the viewer to see how I hold the brushes, switch them out, go to the palette, and more.

    I demonstrate two different ways for easy blood effects.
    When mixing your own blood colours, adding some gloss medium or varnish to the mix will give it some shine. Alternately, you can gloss varnish just the blood effects after application.



    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    The easiest - Citadel: Blood for the Blood God

    Or you can mix your own with paint and Gloss Medium/Varnish:

    Murderous Magenta + Cygnus Yellow
    Any Reds + Murderous Magenta, Sanguine Base or Highlight
    Adding a spot of deep brown, such as Umbral Umber will deepen and darken the blood for and older and stain-like appearance.

    A complete painting guide for crocodile, or alligator skin which could also be applied to any creature that is green and scaly.

    In this video I demonstrate my 'painterly' competitive method for painting small areas and shallow detail. This model from CMON's board game, 'The World of Smog: Rise of Moloch' was one of the many Kickstarter exclusives offered with your pledge - the Canopic Beast.

    The method covered here uses thinned, nearly transparent layers of paint in many layers to achieve the required colour intensity and highlighting. It's a long and tedious method that provides stunning results. Be warned - this is time-consuming.



    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Base - Traitor Green
    Shade 1 - Wash of Thornwood Green
    Shade 2 - Wash of Cryx Bane Base
    Highlight 1 - Thinned Bog Moss
    Highlight 2 - 75/25 (or less) Mix of Thinned Bog Moss + Thrall Flesh
    Highlight 3 - Add a few drops of Menoth White Highlight to Highlight 2 Mix
    Lower Jaw and Belly - Pure, thinned Menoth White Highlight

    A complete video on the easiest and least painful way to paint your black lining. I demonstrate the rest of the wrappings anyways, and talk a bit on colour theory as well.



    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Black Line - Umbral Umber (try not to use pure Black)
    Highlight 1 - Bloodtracker Brown
    Highlight 2 - Beast Hide
    Highlight 3 - Edge highlight with Hammerfall Khaki

    As a final step, fix up any slopped paint with your black line colour, and add some depth and punch to any areas that need it.

    A follow-up to my Massive Darkness dungeon bases, except in this video I'm painting rectangular cobbles instead of roughly shaped stone.
    Another easy method for painting anything with an integrated base, which you do not want to remove the figure from.



    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Base - Greatcoat Grey
    Grout/Lines - Cryx Bane Base
    Highlight 1 - Bastion Grey
    Highlight 2 - Trollblood Highlight
    As a final step, add a few drops of Thamar Black to some Cryx Bane Base, and clean up any slopped paint, and to give the cobbles a bit more depth around them.

    A frequently asked question by board gamers is;
    'Can I just wash the plastic pieces, and use the colour underneath?'
    The answer is yes, you can!
    And it's much easier than you think.

    This video dives into the reasons for priming, and how to prime a model without primer. Yes. Without primer.

    I have been asked many times over the years, 'How do you take good model photos?'

    This video provides the answer.
    I will mention that my set-up is VERY unorthodox, in that I don't use a tent or light box at all. For me, taking good photos is all about the camera.
    And it doesn't have to be a super-expensive one either. With a camera containing a few adjustable features, some good lighting, a foamcore background, and a tripod are all that is needed for professional looking miniatures photography.

    Are you unsure of which brush hair will suit your needs?
    What's the best brush hair and for what purpose?
    What sizes and shape will you need?

    What are the brands I have used, and currently use?
    What are my current favourites?



    This video goes in-depth explaining the main differences between synthetic and kolinsky sable hairs, when best to use them, their properties, and which brushes will best suit your personal miniature painting needs.

    This video is less about brands, and more about which brush hairs to look for, and how to identify a good brush for you, regardless of brand.

    This is not a comprehensive brush brand review, and more of a comparison based on what I have used, and what is most readily available to me locally.

    I do provide opinion on:

    Windsor & Newton Series 7 & Cotman
    Formula P3
    DaVinci
    Raphael 8404
    Citadel Artifcer
    Series 700

    I provide my opinions on my favourites, and the brands I have personally tried, which are my most often used brushes, and why.

    A comprehensive guide for two brush blending, or 2BB.
    I include safety precautions, where to hold the second brush, what size it should be, how thick the paint....well, you get the idea.

    The first in a series of videos in which I will be covering various speed painting techniques.
    The first installment deals with utilizing zenithal priming (AKA sketch priming) and thick glazes to achieve fast and easy shades and highlights.

    This video allows one to stop at any point with which they are satisfied, and one can continue to the end for a high quality paint job in less than half the time it would normally take.

    This method is not the fastest way to paint. But, for getting a very high quality result, the time-saving techniques demonstrated here cannot be beaten.



    All paints used are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless otherwise stated.

    All paint mixes using this method REQUIRE the use of glaze medium. You can do it without, but the finish won't be as smooth, and you may end up with tide rings and 'splotchiness'.

    All mixes should have at least one drop of glaze medium within.

    Skin Base - 15/85 Sickly Skin + Arcane Blue + a drop of Bastion Grey
    Skin Shade - 50/50 Mix of Greatcoat Grey + Arcane Blue
    Skin Highlight - 30/70 Mix of Sickly Skin + Arcane Blue

    Scale Base - Gravedigger Denim
    Scale Shade - Coal Black
    Scale Highlight - 25/75 Mix of Sickly Skin + Gravedigger Denim
    Edge Highlight - add more Sickly Skin to previous Highlight

    Loincloth Base - Sanguine Base
    Loincloth Shade - Umbral Umber
    Loincloth Highlight - Sanguine Highlight

    This is one of more older, more popular uploads that has updated information, has been re-shot, and more examples are given for demo. If you want a complete guide as to how to apply brush primer, this is it.
