1)- First i paint the Basecoat using Scorched Brown ( Citadel -Games workshop ).With a dilution of 50%paint - 50% Water. I apply 3 thin coats to get a solid Basecoat
2)- Then with Brassy Brass ( Game Colour - Vallejo ). I use a dilution of 50%Paint-50%Water too. In the deepest areas i left my Scorched Brown Basecoat to use it as my shadow.
3)- The next layer is made with Shining Gold ( Citadel-Games Workshop ). Dilution 50%-50% too. This layer was aplied in the higher areas of the metallic ballon, In the bottom i left my Scorched Brown and the Brassy Brass Coat, to get the sensation of the light is comming from UP.
4)- To make the Highlights i use a mix of 70% Shining Gold + 30% Mithril Silver ( Citadel -Games Workshop ). That layer was applied to the higher area and in the Sharp edges of the metal partes.
Until now we got a Pure Gold without rust effects, if you want a antique gold you can use the final 2 steps in this tutorial
5)- First apply Jade Green ( Game Colour - Vallejo ) in a dilution of 20% paint- 80% Water in the lowest part and arround the small rivets. In those places the rust will acumulate naturally
6)- In the last layer i use Blue Green ( Model Colour - Vallejo ). Also a dilution 20% Paint-80% Water.
I Hope you can use this in your miniatures! See Ya!
