Colored Washes


Recommended Posts

We have all used washes before, typically black or a dark brown.

Has anyone ever tried using a darkened base color as a wash?

So if you had interior green interior, you would use a medium or dark green as a wash.

Yes, i have, but you really need to go very dark on a green color. I tend to go with a complimentary wash with a color, for instance, I use Dark brown with greens, gray with blues and yellows, blacks with grays, etc. The odd thing is, using dark green on green looks sort of odd, don’t ask me why, but it does not look right. I prefer dark browns.


i used Tamiya Dk brown wash on this, and gray pastels on the black bits. I did use dk brown color n the belts, but I should have used a more medium brown.
