Food colouring

Post by joeinthebox on Sat Aug 01, 2009 2:11 am

I bought a big thing of red food colouring and although it has painted the sheep bone I tested very nicely, am wondering if it would work as paint for warhammer as I have no red paint and don't really want the food colouring test it on a figure just incase.

it would probably make a good wash... but not as a basecoat.

i have now re painted all my warriors so that they have blood on in varying amount
th food colouring looks like dried blood when it dries but if u mix it with pva glue it keeps the reddy colour
i also found tht if you put to much on ad then wipe it off, it leaves a bloody stain on the blade which looks awesome on my necron lords staff.

Thanks for that last bit, my commissars can have that on their swords. And possibly on their guns.

npz
4 a couple of the older lookin necrons i put spatterings of blood over their faces and pools of it at their feet as if theyv been walking through piles of corpses (patricks idea)
food colouring also works better for blood than paint cos of the way it goes on the plastic like blood would
