Product Description

Ammo of MIGHow Paint with Oils - Ammo Modelling Guide 


English edition. 

Oils are one of the most versatile types of paint, offering a greater variety of painting and weathering effects for scale modelling. However, they remain a mystery to many modelers, who only know of a specific technique or even consider oils to be a product exclusively applicable to Fine Arts.


Oil paints offer many advantages when it comes to recreating a wide variety of effects; their much slower drying time compared to other paint mediums and their finely ground pigment allow for the creation of color gradations, stains, and all kinds of dirt effects on vehicles and figures. However, regular artist oils also have disadvantages when applied to modelling, they have been designed with Fine Arts in mind and thus to be applied on an absorbent canvas substrate, not on scale models.


In addition, many different painting techniques and effects can be created with oils, some of which cannot be made using other mediums. This book shows oils on all types of models ranging from tanks and aircraft to figures and dioramas. How to apply the most common techniques such as blending, highlighting and shading are shown, also discover many other techniques that can be used in combination with the standard enamel and acrylic techniques.


Master modelers will illustrate all the secrets of painting with oils through more than 100 pages in a pleasant and easy to follow style with lots of high-quality photos and step-by-step processes.
