Due to my preference for blogging on mobile devices, the absence of an official Blogger app and recent problems with a third-party app I have switched my routine updating to a facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/paintingshedblog/

Interesting stuff Steve. The conversions are simple yet effective that's for sure.I'm going to be watching how you progress with painting the chap on the hoss- takes me back to the days of my "Just Add Water" blog and the "Darren Harding Method".Seriously though, I have tried dip (mainly to knock colours back)and found it to be quite unwieldly and certainly unforgiving. There's nothing wrong with washes in my book and I look forward to seeing the results.Darrell.
Hi Darrell. I'll see how the dip goes. I'm trying on the guards first as they "have it all" - while waistcoats, redcoats, etc so if it works for them it should work for most troops. If it proves too unwieldy (and I see where you are coming from) I will try cutting it down with some yacht varnish or something similar to reduce the intensity of the end effect. I have been using washes and glazes as part of my standard repertoire for a while now so I'm optimisitic I can make it work one way or the other!
