I really had a lot of fun trying out this ‘new to me’ technique of model painting.

I found it really easy to play with, quite intuitive, and surprisingly relaxing.

I would highly recommend it to everyone, especially if you are burnt out or stuck in a groove.

Finding my own colours and being able to darken or lighten them without having to go to a different bottle was just a joy.

Non-metallics are easier to do but obviously metallics would have to be added for any scheme that needed them.

One thing I found was that as you are creating all your colours from a very small palette they all seem to tie in better together.

In conclusion then:

Would I throw out my vast collection of paints now that I had tried this technique? – OF COURSE NOT !

Will I still use other techniques and commercial ranges of paint? – oh yes.

Will I use this technique in future? – Certainly, it is fantastic and I can’t wait to try it with oils instead of acrylics.

Zorn Rules!
