Painting a "Wet" person
« on: March 20, 2010, 08:06:19 AM »
Any advice for painting a Wet model?

I just bought "Bathtime for Bubbles" and obviously, I want her to be wet.

Spray on MATTE varnish everywhere then come back with a non- matte paint on varnish for her. the reflection should look just like a sheen of water... you could probably use the non-matte on the water itself, bubbles too, for same effect.

I was thinking of trying something like the GW Water Effects

(Or the generic equivalent at a fraction of the cost  :D )

Like most things GW these days, I suspect it's overpriced non matte varnish with their logo on it. Try a test piece my way and save some money.... or find that generic one.

I find normal clear spray paint (non matte varieties) usually has the look you want. You just need a brush variety.

Cheers mate! Look forward to seeing the result.

I've painted a house, but never a wet person.
