|Ready for action|
Now every gaming blog seems to have a "Magic Dip" post in their locker somewhere, so this is mine! I don't use this technique very often. Perhaps it feels like cheating. Or too sloppy. But having seen the effect again in practice I will be using it more frequently where applicable.
|Base coated ready for dipping|
One base coat was done, trying to keep the majority of colours light to give the dip a chance. After a bit of research a few years ago I ended up with B&Q Walnut Quick Drying Woodstain (as I'm in the UK). The dip is diluted with water. You'll have to experiment with what looks good to you. I've had a made up jar for a couple of years and I add woodstain or water every now and again. This time a quick stir and test piece proved OK and I was away. A quick shake/spin of the figure afterwards and a wee blow/brush wipe to sort some unwanted pooling and they were left to dry. Even the basing was fast tracked - Javis Tarmac effect flock.
