One Mini at a Time - part eleven

The flesh areas were built up over a Snakebite Leather colour with highlights mixed from flesh and white and allowing the darker base colour to show through in the shadows.

The naval blue uniform was layered up from a base of dark blue, highlighted with lighter blue - not too many layers as I always find blue (particularly dark blue) doesn't need too many layers.

Detailing was done with a Rosemary & Co No. 401 Sable/Synthetic brush and a Winsor & Newton series 7 Sable brush.

The trousers were built up over a cream/linen colour and highlighted with white.

My usual Snakebite Leather coloured base with highlights and washes with some stones picked out in grey highlighted white.

The varnished and decorated miniature also shown with the rest of the boarding party (below).

I'm really enjoying painting up these Flintloque miniatures one-at-a-time. It is a lot more relaxing and rewarding than having a group of part-painted figures on my workbench, For now, stay safe and

Keep Calm and Carry On Modelling
