White is really a very easy color to work with once you understand there is no highlighting white. Much like you can’t shade or darken black, white cannot be made any brighter. So the trick to using white is to define the base color as something darker than white. For this article I am going focus on a cool white. What I mean by this is my shade color is going to be bluish-turquoise set of colors. I prefer cool whites instead of browns or grays because I believe it makes my warmer colors ( reds and yellows) stand out more.
Step 1 is to prime in white. I want the minimum hassle in getting my white to look white and not some dirty grey as can happen with a black undercoat.
Step 5 I begin to build the highlights up using a mix of Trollblood base and Frostbite. I don’t have any particular recipe, I take a dab of one and mix it with a dab of the other and then apply the high lights over most of the model.
