Sometimes I use glaze colorssuch as the GW glazes or Secret Weapon washes. There are times I will just water down paint. SometimesI will mix in glaze medium to thin down a color.

I am trying to get a variety of warm and cool in the yellows, but alsoestablish the darker blues on the armor. Later, I will do some 'light glazes' on that armor for both the skyand earth portions. but especially on the earth colors.

The 'light glazes' can really helphere, since they are basically semi-transparent lighter colors.

I tried to have some green here, so that the blueish colors would not be the onlyplace on the entire mini where you would find cooler colors.
