When you are doing large areas of white markings, do you go OVER the dark color with the white? Or are your base colors large areas of white AND dark...??
I am REALLY not the best person to field finishwork questions, but since you asked...I painted (pastelled) the base color first and then added the white markings over that. I did go back and fuss over the base color a little after the first layer of markings went on. This was mostly because I wanted to add a little more contrast, but also I noticed a few ares that were a bit grainy. Since then, it's been many, many, MANY layers of white. Oh so many layers of white!
I was afraid you were going to say that. "Many, many, MANY layers"... *sigh* I was kinda thinking I was in for that when I was ready to take the next step in my 'hobby education' and begin painting/pastelling. : )Thanks for the information.
I am so relieved that your work area is just as messy as mine! Double Stuff is TOO CUTE, by the way...she (he?) needs a Golden Oreo sibling!
Sad to say, I cropped that picture so only the "neat" part of my work area was showing. The rest is, um, much worse.And Nooooooooo! You should have never suggested a Golden Oreo. I am much too susceptible to things like that. I haven't even officially finished Double Stuff and now I'm already wondering what mold I could use to make her twin. You. Are. Evil.:D
Happy to help! I'm guilty (or is it more of a mercy?) of clearing out the rubbish before I photograph things on the workbench, too...removing pop cans and things.
