I'm trying to be clever and blend it, but it's not working. Doesn't help that i'm painting a Heldrake, so there are millions of little panels to do. Soooo sick of it.
Re white, an even light grey basecoat first cuts down the number of thin white coats required to single figures at least
This about the best white I can manage (pimps stuff again), none of that clever blending stuff but a pretty good even finish. I tried a Tyranid Termagant recently, with gradually highlighted white skeleton. It didn't end well for him.
