Non-metallic metal looks great in photographs, and is a good choice for figures with more delicately sculpted metal details, but it can be tricky to pull off. We’ll start the class with a brief discussion of paint colour choices, placement of highlights and shadows, and other elements that contribute to the successful illusion of NMM. Then we’ll jump right into practicing with techniques you can apply to weapon blades for a great looking result. Attendees will receive a figure to practice on and a handout for later reference so you won’t need to spend class time taking notes. Please bring a good quality brush with a fine point.
