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.

How to


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.
