My painting spree from January has fizzled somewhat. I've got a number of projects in the works but only 2 figures completed, both from Reaper: A Burning Sphere and St. Tarkus.
So that's 75 figures for this year.
While I think I did a decent job with both, I'm wondering if there's a better way to paint fire. Here's what I did:
I primed the figure black, then painted a base coat of Army Painter Matte White. Then I used a mix of Matte White and Games Workshop's Golden Yellow for the second coat. I recall then drybrushing a pure Golden Yellow--but that was too bright, so I washed it down with the Sunburst/Matt White mixed and then dry brushed on GW Blazing Orange. I topped of the edges of the flames with an very orange-looking red.
I'm satisfied with the result--it doesn't look like a ball of ketchup and mustard--but how would you paint flames?
