Ghools’ Painting Tips – How to Paint Feathers, or Fine Detail

Becoming a Patron helps me maintain the channel, and it also helps you get models painted by me! Be privy to an exclusive, in-depth video series on miniature painting, win commissioned models, painted models, and have my knowledge at your disposal. There hasn’t been a better time to become a Patron.

This is another video on glazing and washing. Only this time, I start with a white base, and glaze to tint and shade some feathers. The very end is simply a few ticks of white to get some ‘pop’ on the detail.

But, you can just glaze and tint a white surface that has very fine detail instead of trying to have an uber-steady hand to paint shallow details and miniscule textures.
Welcome to my easy way out for painting fine details without having to master brush control.

All colours used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press, unless otherwise noted.

Colours used:
Base – Menoth White Highlight
Glaze 1 – Rucksack Tan
Glaze 2 – Bloodtracker Brown
Glaze 3 – Bloodtracker Brown/Battlefield Brown

You can substitute just about any colours for your glazes. Just ensure they get darker with each subsequent glaze. Have fun with this method and experiment. You’ll find there are some great and unexpected colour combinations that will work well with this.
