After the NMP, the Minisocles blog publishes an excellent tutorial on the True Metal Painting or how to paint the metal with metallic paints. This post is a new version of the one published in Ravage, very interesting.

Does nobody in England use Google chrome? Because I just hit the translate button and it translated fine, or at least close enough that it could be understood.

Don't forget washes. Evidently, I'm at an intermediate stage, and I find useful Secret Weapon Miniature's Armor Wash to darken metals after I've applied paint to them. As an advanced tabletop painter, I find this much easier than applying more paint. Problem with swords and sharp edges is that if you misapply paint, you *very* easily see the mistake because the sword is no longer reflecting light correctly along the sharp edge between the light and dark areas. With washes, I've been able to control the application better, and, if the dark wash goes into the wrong area, I can quickly dab it up. With paint, the paint dries quickly, leaving some unwanted paint in the wrong area.
