A bit of a mini build: I finally took the time to paint up some action bases to go along with my build displays! A good action base can go a long way to complimenting pictures you take with kits. I painted 3 bases, and I’ve done enough masking I can handle for the time being. I’ve provided a step-by-step if you want to make your own painted action bases. Check it out!
Step by step guide
- Yellow : Base coat of Orange, then add white for preshade. Then 70% Orange Yellow + 30% Yellow with drops of white added for highlight
- Dark Grey: At first used 60% gaia neutral gray 3 40%+ dark seagrey (mr color 331) but was too light. Added 50% gaia flat black to to that mix
- Black: Gaia flat black 80%+ Gaia neutral grey III 20%. Then flat black 60%+ Neutral grey III 40% to highlight
