Step 1: Mix some Prussian Blue and Black to and get your paint into the lines. You’ll notice I’m wearing gloves to keep my fingers from pulling the paint off the model or my hand oils on the model.

Take your time, pull the brush towards you. You can see i got the pinky bracing against the model for support.

Next up, the gun, I paint it black and let me say that the Vallejo Black is amazing. Not all blacks are created equal and this paint is the right amount of Matte and Shine.

Mix Prussian Blue and Black again and use that to line up the gun. Just trace the outline, it’s technique not skill.

Line up the edges, here I went with a blue/white mix; I didn’t go straight to white.
