Forgive me if this sounds a little basic but could one of you gents clarify the following for me?
Once the basic colour has been applied what would be the suggested sequence for the filters, pin washes chips etc ?
Would a gloss coat after the intial colour application prior to any further applications be advised?
Thanks in advance.
You would apply your base coat first, then any airbrush shading like a faded dusting over the base shade.
Filters next to adjust the overall look of the base coat.
After that add smaller dark washes or pin washes to pick out details
Do a little dry brushing with light or dark colors if desired
Add any chips, scratches, etc.
Personally I dont use any gloss coat, and see absolutely no need for one. I paint with Tamiya acrylics, Gunze acrylics, Testors and Humbrol enamels, and some other paints now and then. When dry, I use Weber's Turpenoid and artists oils for my filters, washes, etc. They don't soften or hurt the dry paint at all. I have found gloss coats can change the color of the base coat (usually make it darker) and also sometimes washes tend to bead up on them.
