Model painting group posts on Facebook can provide a lot of good inspiration while browsing and posting cat photos, and one of the posts in one of the groups asked where to find a decent painting tutorial for putting a galaxy paint scheme on a model.
One very helpful reply suggested this post from a crafting blog, showing how to paint a galactic-style easter eggs.
It’s very simple, and requires a base coat of black, some purple, maybe some blue, some gold and thinned white paint. Stipple on the colors and spatter the white on by flicking brush bristles (or use a popsicle stick and an airbrush!) et voila! Galaxy paint scheme.
Get all the steps from the link above, or check back in the near future and I’ll be trying this same technique on some of my Harlequins models 🙂
