I'm attempting to mimic some painted figures.

They seem to be slightly textured. Tiny bumps all over.

This is either from the undercoat or from spraying on the main colour. Or, it just came to me while writing, perhaps the varnish.


Any thoughts on what may create such texture.

They are modern GW figures and I suspect painted using typical modern GW Style and paint.

Maybe add some very fine sand?

How old are the figures. The old Poly-S paints would leave a rough finish sometimes.
