Quick tip for white color in decals

Post by Kottlewski » September 29th, 2015, 9:20 pm

Hi,

if you need white on your decals, print on white decal paper and add a ring of your basic ship color (no need for a perfect color match). Cut close to your subject but leave enough for thin details. When it's on your ship paint your base color as close as you dare ;)
Clearcoat and wash etc. Maybe you'll see a light color variation but your subject will camouflage this...

Works also for light colors on dark models.
