5 Best Practices
With any new paint product or technique, there’s always a bit of a learning curve to get the best results. With Speedpaint, that learning curve isn’t so steep.
Here are 5 Best Practices to get the most from this awesome new technique to add to your hobby arsenal.
For more videos on Speedpaint, check out our Youtube channel.
Start by priming your miniature with Colour Primer Matt White, or our Airbrush Matt White Primer for the best adhesion and vibrant results. Other colours can be employed for a different unique result.
Shake the bottle thoroughly to mix your paints and ensure the pre-loaded Mixing Balls are not stuck in the dropper well. If they are, simply remove them by sticking a needle or cocktail stick through the nozzle.
A hard palette is recommended for Speedpaint. If you use our Wet Palette, there’s a chance that the Speedpaint will bleed through the Hydro Sheet and stain your Hydro Foam.
Load your brush with a liberal amount of Speedpaint and apply a generous coat over the desired areas, allowing the pigment to flow into the recesses and details of the miniature and let dry.
Finish off your paint job with a protective layer of Anti-Shine Matt Varnish Spray or Airbrush Varnish. If you wish to add more layers or highlights with acrylic paints, we recommend applying a layer of varnish first.
For extra details and really bringing your miniature to life, finish the base off using the many different Tufts and basing materials from our Battlefields Basing range.
You can speed up the drying time of the Speedpaint with a hair dryer!
Prime, Paint and Play
Are you ready to paint your hordes of grey plastic, armies of unpainted miniatures, and piles of miniature shame faster and easier than ever before? Then Speedpaint is the tool for the job. Get started with our Speedpaint Starter Set, indulge in the full-range found in the Speedpaint Mega Set, and be sure to stock up on the best primers and varnishes for the job.
Achieving prime results requires the right primer
We recommend priming your miniatures with Colour Primer Matt White for best adhesion and vibrant colour
Colour Primer Skeleton Bone and Necrotic Flesh are also fun to play around with for unique results and Warpaints Air Matt White Primer can come in handy as well. If you really want to push Speedpaint to it’s limit, try applying it over a zenithal basecoat!
