The DIP Method: A Step by Step Guide to Painting Miniatures
- Andrew CUnited States
If you are just starting with painting, or if you, like me, lack the patience to paint multiple layers of shading, or you simply want to paint a large army fast, you may want to consider this method.
When viewed at normal game play distance, 'Dipped' figures look great. As an additional bonus, figures painted this way are very durable as they have two layers of finish on them. When not in use, I throw my figures in a bag or box together, and I even let my young boys play with them like action figures.
Fellow BGGer Paul goldenboat O'Connor taught me this method, and inspired me with his painted Battle Lore set. I created this geeklist to pass that knowledge along.
