I started the Chinese Tuesday night. Well, truth be told I had based and under-coated already so I took the opportunity to wash them all in black ink. I will start on the carrier first.
I am looking to use a grey that is somewhat lighter than the grey the Indians were painted in. It will almost be white but at the same time I want it to appear as a grey. Very, very light grey.
The black ink wash is good because it naturally darkens some areas at the same time as bringing the detail out.
Painting session Thursday night I hope – the target is to get the carrier finished.
