Flesh washes and inks
The following post is in reply to a comment left on my Blog earlier this week. Below I have detailed six flesh or brown inks/washes to compare their tone and colour.
1 Citadel Wash Ogryn Flesh (an older pot that has been frost effected - see earlier post)
2 Citadel Wash Sepia (a brand new pot)
3 Citadel Colour Flesh Wash (the old blue topped pot)
4 Citadel Chestnut Ink
5 Formula P3 Flesh Wash from Privateer Press
6 Warzone Chestnut Wash (now o-o-p)
The most obvious conclusion is that the old blue-topped Citadel Flesh Wash is a completely different colour to the rest, being much more yellow.
The blue-topped Flesh Wash is also the brightest and smoothest.
1, 5 and 6 are roughly the same, very little difference in colour although the frost effected Ogryn Wash is very grainy.
The background is artist grade watercolour paper.
Although a firm supporter of the Citadel Washes, even though there have recently been some issues with the pots being frost effected, I still think the best Flesh Wash is the old blue-topped Citadel Colour Flesh Wash.
