From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The painting technique of non-metallic metal, or NMM as it is often known, is something I’ve tried once, with middling results. Simply put, when painting non-metallic metal you use colours rather than metallic paint, much as a visual artist would when painting.
See this piece below by Will Murai. The artist has used colours to created the effect of gold and silver armour. Similar effects can be achieved on miniatures.
Recently I gave the technique another run, on a pair of fantasy hero models. Here are the results:
The dwarf was the second of the two models I painted, and I’m a lot happier with how it turned out. The knight is okay, but the level of contrast was not there. For those wondering I used only two colours for the NMM gold: white and leather brown. These were mixed to varying degrees, and painted over a white undercoat.
Given how the dwarf turned out, the gold at least is something I plan to keep going with.
