You may want to speed it up by using a grey spray instead of the white. Wink

Or more black in the pre-wash if you want an effect more like the traditional black undercoat. The purpose of the wash is simply to pick out the details so I can see them Smiley

Though with acrylics not being fully opaque, the pre-wash does give rudimentary shading.

Future floor polish and regular acrylic paint will work as well.

Nice bit of work there and great music.

The floor varnish and what brand to buy has been debated a lot and you'll find some of the info with photos of the various products here http://www.swannysmodels.com/TheCompleteFuture.html
This Google search will give tips on how to use and mix https://www.google.se/search?q=magic%20wash%20clear%20painting%20miniatures

Aye, it sure does. I choose to use airbrush paint since the pigments are even smaller in those. Inks or washes should work just as well as airbrush paint.

Thanks Smiley

I use the pledge Klear from Sainsburys...does a similar job though I think the new stuff is slightly diiffernet from the old

This stuff

http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/groceries/index.jsp?bmUID=1389363084933

For the first wash I use Vallejo black shade wash ..Personal choice but I find it works and gets in all the crevices
