Took a drive today to the art/craft store to pick up a few things, namely Acrylic medium and retarder, to create a wash/dip via Les’s recipe.  Super simple to make, and oh my god does it make a differece on the models. I did a black wash and after it dries, the contrast created really makes the models pop. I dipped the daemonettes that I have painted so far, they’re dry now and looking great. Amazing how simple this is. Why haven’t I been doing this the whole time?

Since it is working out so well, I’ve also started going back through the ranked high elves and washing them. I can’t wait to finish the whole army with this technique!
