I'm back to my spray primer from The Army Painter and ready to try exploring new techniques.
1. Gun Metal is the newest addition to the Army Painter colour primer collection and what I've used to kick this study off.
This primer has a nice texture to it which lends itself well to the finished product.
2. Next, I lay down a coat of Mr Metal for more realistic chipping later. The Mr. Metal provides a nice luster when polished. The point is to build the layers up starting with a good foundation- metal finish. I prefer to use a nice large flat brush to get an even as possible coat down for this step.
