|Ripped off the mistake basing, which was surprisingly easier than expected.|
JJ constructing and painting (deja-vu anyone?), this is an Eldar Crimson Hunter commission for Shawn.
As mentioned in the first post on this topic, what did I learn with this base? Patience. Let the glue and wash completely dry before flocking and finishing the base. Which was immediately implemented when I was re-doing this base.
|Still don't understand this. Glued first layer of cork on the base.|
|Glue covering the rest of the base.|
|Now a liberal dump of Shawn's basing material and that part is done. Gave it 24 hrs before going to the next part.|
|Tapped off excess and the base is ready for the next part.|
|Added layers of cork.|
|This is my main problem when using cork on bases. Following the example of Andrew I want to build up layers of cork and rough them up so they are unrecognizable.|
|Here you can see the flat cleavage of the cork. Which I frankly find unappealing.|
|Roughed up the cork to eliminate the flat surface. Much better.|
|Dheneb Stone for basecoat.|
|Washed Army Painter Soft Tone.|
|Washed Army Painter Strong Tone.|
|That's it. Finally finished. Damn fun and learning galore.|
Moral of the story: Washes are extremely wet and need time to dry, unless you hit them with a hair blow dryer. Allow time for the glue to dry before painting the cork.
