Has anyone tried painting stripes on clothing with GW's Contrast Paints?

I have Celts I want to paint and am just wondering if anyone has tired vertical or horizontal striping on figures with this stuff?

If so, how did it work?

I would guess "NOT good" considering it like a wash.

Try felt pens, "Sharpies" or similar

Dagwood, that might be a good idea, then the Contrasr Paint over for shading(?).

That's an iffy experiment, think. But it might be fun.

If you painted the stripes with a gloss paint so the contrast paint drains off it, that might work…

That's an idea.

I was thinking of lining between colours.

Just starts seeming like it's beginning to potentially be a lot of work for an easy quick method.

I just don't want to have to strip any figures. I guess the paint is thin enough it shouldn't be too hard to prime over them again

I am thinking of trying spots or stripes on genestealer carapaces and then using contrast paint over it. But I don't think the paint would work just for stripes used straight.

I've been undercoating a fair number of Celts with many more being assembled (finally putting a couple boxes of Warlord Celts and their Ancient British variants together along with a lot of Blacktree Design).

I'll keep updating.
