A quick and easy technique in which the pay-off is well worth the little time it takes. Make your gems look great with this easy method that any intermediate painter can accomplish. All you need is good brush control and you can have the snazziest looking gems on all of your miniatures.

The base can be whichever colour you choose, and it is shaded and highlighted with pure white, or an ivory white and black.

As you become more skilled at using the method, you can begin using intermediary colours, and deeper shades of the base for shading, which will create an even smoother blend and more realistic looking gemstone.
