Newbie Question

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly new to repainting and have done about 6 or 7 paintjobs. My question is I have a paintkit that has bare metal textures, and I want to paint the aircraft white..you can't you "multiply" because white won't show up that way. This is a single layer texture so I can't just slap white on it...Can someone tell me how to add the layer of white and still keep the detail underneath?

In the situation you describe I usually added a white layer over the top and reduced its opacity, not ideal but it usually got the desired result :( Morgan Dainow

Okay here is something you can try Its not brilliant and you have to work with it a bit but here goes Create a new layer over the bare metal and add white and use soft light not brilliant and another layer the same Keep going As I said it is by no means definitive , you have to work with the sliders % and mybe change a layer to dodgeIt really is dependant on the texture and how much detail you want to keepHave funMark
