Those are some really neat designs! I like the underwater feel the Akaku has, and that dark Mask of Creation looks stellar, especially with the printed Nuva Symbols! That must of took a long time to do.
I’ve seen you work on Tumblr, and I really like it! It’s great how you bring out the runes on the Mask of Creation… but it makes me wonder, have you done one like it appears in JtO? The trans-blue one, but with gold runes?
Nope, and I probably won’t. When I paint the masks I have to use a spray primer to get the paint to stick, which means to keep transparency I have to mask off anything I don’t want primed. And masking off everything but the runes, while technically possible, seems like way too much effort for the end result to me.
I would invest in a nice spray primer (and make sure your paints match
the primer type, otherwise they won’t stick) and look up some youtube
tutorials on painting. Warhammer TV has plenty of good ones, and most of
my painting skills I got from painting the same kind of minis and
reading tutorials from White Dwarf.
I cut them apart, glue them back together, prime them, and use tiny brushes to paint everything on.
