I have a couple of minis that need to be ghostly (including Slimer.) I've been trying to find a good written or video guide, but not with a lot of luck.
I've found a few, but the issues are:
- they assume you're using Citadel/GW paints, and refer to them only by name. That's tricky because I need to look up each and every one of them and hope I can color-match them to my craft paints. It's impossible when it's some very specific "Slaanesh Nostril Interior Pink Glaze" type of glaze or ink; or
- they require an airbrush; or
- they just amount to "oil-stain it green and drybrush it white and call it a ghost!"
I've done the last one. It's not bad, but it's not ghostly. And ghosts-are-green seems to be a thing, ever since the LOTR movies, but I'm actually angling for grey or blue if possible. I'll go green if necessary but I'd like options so they don't all look like Slimer.
Does anyone have a suggestion, especially one that doesn't require me to have an airbrush and a complete collection of GW paints? Worse comes to worst I'm just going to brush up from blue to grey to white and slap on some Ral Partha Will-O-Wisp glow-in-the-dark paint, but I am hoping for options beyond that.
