Thread: Painting metallics at night

    Default Painting metallics at night

    Does anyone have any tips for painting true metallic metal at night? I find the task lamp despite it being great still causes considerable reflection making it close to impossible to see what i'm doing. I'm currently using a daylight task LED XL lamp.

    Sorry no solution but I have got the same problem. I also have problems seeing contrast with non metall colors when the lamp is on.

    Use more than one light and don't have them as close to the mini. Using more than one light is always a good idea, as you will get less of natural shadows as you work on the miniature.
