Painting technique involving dipping the figure into a pigment and varnish mix to give a shading effect and a protective coat.

Commercial dipping products are available, although many painters prefer to mix their own blend using inks, liquid wax products, etc.

Many people will use a brush to apply the dip as it can get messy if you put the figure in the liquid and then you shake it off.
