Hobby: Quick Tips – Make Your Own Washes

For those of you who might find themselves dissatisfied with the GW’s 6 available washes you can always make your own. By making your own you can get a wider palette of colors and can customize your washes and glazes to better match your armies.

The recipe is easy. 3 parts Liquitex Matte Medium to 3 parts distilled water to 1 part paint. This will give you a sure-fire mixture that will do what GW’s washes do so beautifully. I have a dropper bottle that is premixed 1:1 matte medium to distilled water and when I use it to make a custom wash I dispense it 6:1 mixture to paint.
