It’s time to look at painting Energy/Spirit weapons!

Taking into account that a lot of painters don't have access to Airbrushes, this Daz’s Daily focuses on using the mighty brush.

What you’ll need:

  • P3 Paints - Meridius Blue

  • P3 Paints - Exile Blue

  • P3 Paints - Morrow White

  • Artist Opus Brushes (sizes 1 and 000)

Here's the paints I used for comparisons - white, turquoise and dark blue.

The whole blade was glazed with a very thin glaze (10/1 water to paint) Meridius Blue to tie our highlights and shades together.   And we're done!
