Good day everyone!
Thanks for the feedback yesterday guys! It really helps me keep the tempo and paint much more than I used to do some months ago.
I received a couple of questions yesterday, regarding the shading effect I achieve on my figs, and today I took a couple of photos of the products I am using.
The product I am using is called Aquaxyl and it is a water based wood preservative. It comes in many shades, and the ones I am using is one ''Dark Brown - ΚΑΦΕ (in Greek)'' and one ''Black - ΜΑΥΡΟ (in Greek)''. I bought it from a local DIY Store called ''Praktiker'' (a reference for the fellow Greeks). Each can consists 750ml and it costs around 11 euro. It WILL....last ages, as it doesn't dries in the can as the ARMY PAINTERS Dips do after a couple of months. Leave aside the fact that it is MUCH cheaper! (We live in gloomy times here in Greece, don't forget about that...) :-)
You apply it with the same way you do with the ARMY PAINTERS' Dip (either by using a brush or by dipping the figure in the can and then remove the excesses).
The best aspect of this product is that it dries out really quickly, so you don't have to wait 24-48 hours before spraying the AP Anti Shine Varnish (it can be used with terrific results)!
So instead of dedicating an hour per figure, use a Water Based wood Preservative (the brushes don't wear out)!!!!
Life is too short.... ;-)
