Heya everyone! I'm interested in making character and creature sculpts but I need some advice on painting them. I know that some can look great without a paint job too, but in the event that color would really enhance the work I have a few questions:
-What kind of paint is best (in your own experience)?
-Is there paint that is both good-quality and cost-efficient?
-What methods of applying the paint to the sculpt work well? (brush, airbrush, sponge, etc.?)
-Is it wise to seal the finished product?
If there's any advice you wish to give out of your own experience, please feel free to share. Whether it sticks to my questions or not isn't important--I would appreciate any feedback!
I guess it really depends on the material/finish of your sculpts and personal preference but on resin casts I have found enamel paint (such as people use for painting model airplanes etc) to be the best (in my relatively limited experience). be aware you'll need white spirit to clean your brushes with and that it takes a while to dry!
good luck with your sculpts
