I hope you like it.

What color do you use for your sails?

ModelJShip03 Sep 2018 12:09 a.m. PST

I use the Bonewhite as a base (GameColor 72.034)
For the ink washes I use Agrax Earthshade (Citadel)
I make the lights with the Bonewhite + white.
Finally I use an ocher, Tau Light Ocher (Citadel) + some of Charred Brown (Game color 72.045). I dilute it with water and a little alcohol and apply a wash for the entire sail. This step I do when I have the ship finish, including the rigging.

OK, thank you. I'm getting tired of mixing custom colors for sails every time I build a ship, and this will be a good basis to start from.

You can always use that color like a base and then do washing with other colors (gray, brown, reddish brown, ocher) to give different shades to the sails. ; )

I've never been good with washes, but I do have some sails and masts that I will be using for wreckage markers. I can test on those.
