I've searched the forums for a little while about some questions I've been having. I came up with some very good answers but need to "focus" in on a few of them. Here is my situation.
I've bought acrylic paints (Polly Scale) using Rogue Studios paint list. I prefer working with acrylics because they are so much easier to clean (the airbrush that is). However, some of the colors such as "Caboose" and "Bright Silver" had to be bought in enamels. I looked for them but couldn't find them and the ones I found were no longer in stock. So, I went ahead and placed a large order for the paints. I plan on using masking fluid (Winsor and Newton Colorless Masking Fluid) and using layers to create the "damage" on Boba's helmet.
My questions are these:
*If I prime it using any rattlecan primer, I will then place a cote of Floquil "Bright Silver" down. I will let this dry for at least 24 hrs. Can I then add my masking fluid to the areas that need it and paint the acrylic paint on top of this?
*I could only find "Caboose" in the enamel Floquil colors. Once I get the helmet going, should I lay down the "Caboose" color and then add the acrylics on top of that?
*Will the masking fluid come up with out removing any of the enamel silver below it? Also, wen adding masking fluid from acrylic paint to acrylic paint, will the masking fluid chip the acrylic? And if that the case, is there any way to get around that?
These are the pages I found useful but didn't quite see these answers in there...
