I got this idea from some blog or other, but could not find it again. (Let me know, if you have an example). I used it on a multi-melta.
Using inks/washes or possibly very thin paint build up some rings. Try to vary the intensity, so the colours blend. If it comes out a bit strong, it can be knocked back a touch by drybrushing with the base metal colour again.
Update: Thanks to Siph, here's my reference.
I just used a similar heat effect on the nozzles of my Xiphon Interceptor using a basic four washes scheme, I got the idea from Ron at From The Warp eons ago. It looks good in both versions, better than just a soot effectReplyDelete
Thanks Siph, with that tip, I found it. Pretty sure this was the post that gave me the idea.ReplyDelete
I cant seem to figure out if I can get an image in the comments, so I will update the post with it.
I would like to see how your Xiphon came out. Can you give a link?
Nice. I've been using the right colours, just not in any particular order. This should improve things.ReplyDelete
