Help With Garage Kit Painting, Any Tips?Help With Garage Kit Painting, Any Tips?Ask MFC

I had a garage kit that I ordered arrive today and as I was looking at the parts a question came up. It has some sand effect parts that have a sandy, gritty texture and I was wondering what would be the best way to paint them? I don't have an air brush. I just paint my kits with acrylic paint and brushes. Here are some pictures of the parts in question.

you can airbrush the base color (whatever sand color you want) and then dry brush white to enhance the texture.
At least it's what I would do. Good luck!

For a lot of years I made garage kits and scale model kits and painted with a brush. Then I finally bought an air brush and wondered why the heck I hadn't got one earlier.
But as others have said, the key to good brush work is layering ( same applies with air brush). I usually start with a black or dark grey primer coat which straight away has my shadow areas done. Then I decide where the light will be coming from and paint these areas with a light coat of white or light grey as both a lighting test and under layer. After that its a matter of building up layers and blending them (wet brushing). patience is the key. I generally put on a clear coat after any major point in the painting is complete, this seals it in and makes it easier when doing washes and dry brushing later as yo can remove excess easier. Oil washes over acrylics work well. Use what ever paints you can get in your area. Just be sure to enjoy yourself :D

tybalitusVor 5 Tagen#96292401I paint magic cards and do this type of texture all the time! My secret? A ten year old mangled bright style paintbrush. Literally buy a cheap bright paintbrush, and despite everything in your mind telling you not to, just jab it straight down on a flat surface until it looks downright awful. Put a little bit of paint on it and lightly dab it all around. It actually works really well!

That actually sounds like it would work very well! Thank you!

CookieNelVor 5 Tagen#96292397There are some YouTubers I’ve watched who show you how they paint their garage kits and what they use to do it, so maybe that might help a little. (Also, is that for the Nelliel gk? Nice (:

Thanks for the info! Yes this is the base to a Nel garage kit!

For_OthersVor 5 Tagen#96292357You could try using spray cans to do the majority of the painting and shade with soft brushes and pastels. If you really want to do it with a brush I'd say try it with many many thinned layers and a fuckton of patience. I'd also recommend getting an airbrush thinner or another thinner specifically for acrylics, as mixing acrylic paint and water in a bigger ratio than 1:1 tends to make the paint dry weirdly and crack.

Thank you so much for the tips! I was wondering if painting it with spray paint would work. I might have to try that!

ActVor 5 Tagen#96292328There's not really any way to paint this with a brush (and I'd be worried about mangling my brushes) -- it's pretty much designed for airbrushing. However, depending on what you want it to look like, it might be worth trying to spongepaint it. I don't have experience spongepainting on resin, but the stippling effect you get on canvas/wood could end up looking good if this is supposed to be, say, a rocky outcrop.

Sponge painting does sound like it could work. Thanks for the idea! I was wondering, do you think I could paint the sandy parts with spray paint? Just a thought since I'm going to use spray primer to prime it.
