Ready to make those crystal elements on your minis really shine? Painting translucent crystal is fun and rewarding, and surprisingly easier than you might think! This class should help break down the process in a step by step paint-a-long. This is an intermediate level class, but even if you’re not familiar with blending techniques, you should be able to follow along as well. We’ll be using Reaper’s 77312 Wall of Ice. You can use any colors to paint crystals, but I’ll be demonstrating with Pure White, Nightmare Black, Ultramarine Blue, Marine Teal and Mint Green. Students should have a nice brush available for blending, such as a natural hair sable, and be familiar with blending techniques such as wet blending or layering in order to get the most out of this class. Clean your miniature before class with warm water and dish soap, and remove any mold lines you’d like. You do not need to prime, but please basecoat the miniature with an even coat of ultramarine blue.
