Painting Valkyrie - part 2
Model is in pretty good state right now but still lacks a lot of detail so i painted few dots on the spots i tought oil may be loosing with well thinned oil paint, waited about a minute and then with dry brush expanded the dot to look like streak of surface polution.
Before previevous step was time to give whole model an oil wash, but as im lacking mat varnish at the moment and becouse xmas rush at work i have no time to go to the nearest hoby store and buy a can of it i decided to further shade the surfaces on the model with help of my favourite gw washes. First layer was uneaven layer of gryphone sephia wash shooting through the airbrush dilluted about 1:1 ratio with water. After couple of minutes i came back and did one more run concentrating on yellow parts of model and around panel lines. Then loaded delvan mud wash and repeated whole proces, but concentrating more on panel lines and less on to flat surfaces. Last layer was badab black wash diluted about 2:1 with water as i wanted realy thin coat of it and airbrushed it just around panel lines.
