Painting minis; getting started

I just wanted to give you an example of layering. The base color you see on the pants is Dark Golden Brown by Pro Acryl and it’s the same base color I painted on for the fleshy bits. When I’m done, I’m hoping for pants that look like distressed leather.

I just wanted to share a pic of the first minis I painted back in spring of 2020 (though the pic is from later). I figured lizardfolk would be a good and easy place to start, and sometimes I get the urge to strip and repaint them with the skills I have acquired since, but I also like looking at how far my work as come.

If you ever strip them, keep a few around as a reminder of how far you've come.

I'm really not happy. All those white spots are driving me nuts. I'm trying hard to get them all. I keep working at this one. I've never tried to strip paint off before. What should I do if I decide to go there with him?

That is a ridiculous miniature and I'm sad I don't own it. Consider priming in black. It's a cheap and easy way to avoid having those white spots show up. Alternatively, make sure you apply multiple thin coats of your base color to ensure complete coverage.

I probably should have primed in black. This is the one I tried painting black then brown. So some of the spots were missed when applying two different colors. 😖

You too can have your very own sharkenbear and with a $3 off coupon. It's a nifty little set. Everything has 5e stats and lore. And I insist on pictures to be posted of any and all paint jobs.
