In this second hobby shortcut I show you how you can paint small areas on your miniatures with metallic markers quickly and easily.
I recently picked up some metallic markers at our hobby supply store of choice ACTION. I chose the silver gold bronze set with 8 markers for 2,26 €.
You can use these metallic markers to paint small detail areas on miniatures, such as, trims, ornaments or freehands. Imagine Chaos space marines or Khorne warriors. For larger areas I recommend using a brush of an appropriate size or an airbrush for very large surfaces, such as tanks, spaceships and other vehicles.
I apply my standard washes from Army Painter, Games Workshop or Greenstuffworld to shade the painted areas. Once dry, you can even highlight the metallic areas. Just as you would with a normal brush.
I added these metallic markers to my arsenal since it sped up and simplified my process for painting miniatures.
