PostSubject: Custom Trouble    Mon 29 Jan 2018 - 11:55

Hi! I'm Leo,

I have just started customising schleich models again. Does anyone know a way to make pastel transfer well on to a model? Right now I paint the model with a acrylic base but when I brush on soft pastels it does not transfer.

i'v read a bit but most people suggest produces that will make the model glossy which is a look i dont really like.
Any suggestions? confused

An acrylic base sounds like a good start.
I use a workable fixative for inbetween the pastel layers and that works really good (and it's not glossy)

Have you primered the model first? You will want to spray the model with primer (or you can paint on thin layers of gesso) before adding paint Smile It's also important to note that it's going to take several layers of pastel in order to see any major difference. Seal each layer, let dry, then "paint" on another layer. Start light and gradually bring in darker colors. Adding too much of a darker color at one time will cause the paintjob to appear grainy. You will also get a grainy, muddled mess without sealing each layer in between. I would recommend waiting at least 30-45 minutes for the sealer to try before applying the next layer. Pastels take a lot of layers and tons of patience Very Happy

If you don't like glossy look, use a varnish with matt finish, you can add gloss on the eyes later if you like it Smile

I feel a bit of irony in your comment, Susanne Laughing

Sorry if I didn't explain it more clearly. There are several kinds of varnish sprays, often the same company produces 3 versions like matt, glossy and satin. A nice example is Valejo, I use them most of the time. My favorite is satin but I recently started trying matt and it's good too, gives a very matt finish. For the gloss (for eyes) the simplest (and often cheapest) solution is transparent nail polish.
