In order to solve your issue with the bones from reaper, that you don't want to prime first, you can add more flow aid to the recipe.
The flow aid is only about 5% of the total recipe, but if you increase this to about 15%, it should flow well on the bones without pooling.

Alternatively, you can add a few drops of your choosen wash in a small recipient and mix some dish soap.
I can't give you an exact ratio, but I think a tiny drop of soap for 5-6 drops on wash should work fine.

Btw, did any one try Les recipe with other inks?
I tried using magic color inks, which were somewhat cheaper as the expensive ones recommanded in this thread.
However, I had issues mixing with black.
A single drop of black ink had a huge impact on the color.

So for example, trying a mix of 60 blue with 20 black would give me pure black wash.
I would get the desired effect with a single drop of black, but it's kinda strange there is such a huge difference.

This makes it quite hard to get some special tones.
Next time, I'll probably get some Daler-Rowney even though they are on the pricy side.

In some of his videos he uses a "water and flow aid mixture" like in this video.




Does anyone know the water to flow aid ratio he uses?

Thanks.

10:1 water to flow aid, the same ratio used for these recipes. If you mix heavier than that it will start messing with the paint.

This article is too useful to miss. Can the mods consider a sticky please. Not the whole thread, just a copy paste of the OP into a sticky tips thread with mod only access.

Threadromancy go...

I just made a pretty close but not quite match to Army Painters Zombie Shader. I really like their color but I am going to need a ton of if now that I have finally decided to get around to painting 4 kickstarter seasons worth of zombicide. Anyways on to the recipe.

I used the reccomended Daler Rowney inks. I also mixed this in a 1 oz bottle.

40 drops of Sepia
20 drops of Black
10 drops of Flame Red... It comes off slightly too red from AP's Next batch I am going to bump the red down a few drops.

Hope this helps.

OK... in my first version of this I recommended 80/40/20 drops for a 1 ounce bottle. After actually trying that out on some models, it comes out way too saturated and darker than AP's Z shader. So... I'm thinking cutting those by half. I am editing the mix up top to reflect this.

Hey there, I need to make a large batch of wash for a 2meters rock I'm painting for a project, liquitex seems like a waste of money for my purpose, i does anyone knows if there is any cheaper product like pledge floor wax but not glossy?

Also I need to point out I live in Italy, so if you could make predict conversion with the local stuff sold would be awesome (I know I'm asking a lot but who knows..)
Thank you in advance guys

running amok, against the reality of defeat

When I met my wife, I showed her my miniatures collection, and told her about my wargame hobby. She thought it was "cute", and asked if she could take a figure(Scrappa Sorehead. A Goblin 3rd ed Blood Bowl star player.) and some paints and brushes and see if she could paint it(I also gave her the star player card and the paints she would need to paint the figure as depicted on the card).

(In forrest Gump voice) Guess What?

Anyway, today she has a very busy miniatures painting business, and makes good money(enough so that she quit her cake designers job). She mostly paints Historicals, but she loves painting Blood Bowl figures. The crazier, the better!

Well, we got talking about how much Rykland Flesh tone and devlin mud wash she has been going through. I told her to order the stuff we needed from Amazon, and last night we made our first small batch: 2 bottles of Black and 2 of Sapia.

This works GREAT! I grabbed a Blood Bowl Minotaur I was working on, and she had a dozen Dark Age warriors. The washes look great!

We will be getting more bottles of ink and away we go!

Thanks, mate!
