Paint Tips - Paint Additivies - Windex

I have started using windex as a paint addititive, primarily to thin my paint, especially to use it as a wash and also as a glaze/juice. I really like what windex does to the paint, and with my style of painting many thin layers, as opposed to one (or two) thicker coats, I find the windex is a great additive.

Here are a couple of pointers
  • I dillute my windex with water, in about 1:3 ratio. That is, 1 part Windex and 3 parts water.
  • The blue tint of the windex does not effect the tint of the paint.
  • Windex has been used by air-brush users for years. So it is not a "new fad".
I will post some photos of minis, painted with paint thinned with Windex, shortly.

Flintloque, Imperial Guard and The Goon Squad

I have still been painting, but not as much as I would like to. My new Graphic Design course is taking up a lot of my spare time, and so I don't get time to spend at my painting table. I don't have too much to report,so I will simply post some pictures of what i have painted recently.

These minis were painted for the "2012 Painting League" over at CDO.

Thor Modelling Studio

This blog was recommended to me by a fellow wargame painter/modeller, so I went over and had a look. It isis a really great  site. This guy has a lot of modelling talent, and has produced a good amount of tutorials, which are quite useful to any wargamer. Go over and have a look.

The blog is written in Thai, and I had Google translate it for me, but it does translate very badly. If you can get past the bad english translation, then this blog is certainly work a look. I am going back there now, for another good look around.
