Using Oil Piants

I have been following an artist on Facebook named James Wappel.  He is an amazing artist and has been posting videos on using oil paints on miniatures.  I decided to give it a shot on my Big Mek model and happy with the results.  I only did the blue on the Shokk Attack Gun as a test and the rest of the model was done in acrylic paint.

The benefit of using oil allows you more working time with the paint and allows more time for blending.  It also can be removed if you make a mistake and just start over again.  The down side is the drying time.  Oil paints take days to dry even with small amounts being used.  You also can't use acrylic paints over oil.  You have to put a clear coat over the oil paint first before you can go over the oil paint with acrylic.

It was fun trying something new and will continue to learn how to use oil paints in the future.  I have a few random models laying around to practice with over time.  

I am also working on my next project, Grot Tanks.  I am just going to share a teaser photo.

Finished up some more Ork models

Well it has been a busy month helping my wife with her holiday wreath business.  We have one more show this weekend and we will be done for the season.  I did find some time to get some painting done and I finished two Big Meks in Power Armour that will have Kustom Force Fields.  I am looking forward to Chapter Approve coming out this weekend to see what changes were made to the Ork army.  For the month of December I will finish up my last Big Mek and build 4 Grot Tanks.
