Hello Everyone,
Just have a quick question about Drybrushing. What are the best colors to drybrush with? I have found a very light tan works best on Dark Greens but not sure what will work for Olive Drabs and Multi-color German Camo's. I would appreciate any help anyone could lend. Thanks again everyone.


Best Wishes,
Walter

Since Each Color has a Diffrent Premier Color to Dry Brush with this is semi-general, I Also dry Brush depending on the Location my vehicle would be in. I Even Dry Brush my Figures with a Mud Color or Snow COlor Depending on the Time of Year they are set in.

Although as a general rule for dry brushing I believe go with a lighter green then the Green you are Dry Brushing onto. SO For Olive Drab Just Choose a Lighter Green.

As per Say Multi Clored German Vehicles Take the Lightest Color In the Scheme add a few drops of flat white to it and dry brush away. This can give a greate effect of chipping if done right.

I'm sure other people have many other methods though, that's just what makes me happy.
