Andy--how do you use smoke? I've never figured out a good way to use it, but I know the pro mini painters swear by it

I dilute Smoke about 1:20 with Future (or any other clear Acrylic medium) and it makes for a very nice glaze.

I will try that. Think it would make a neat "dip" alternative

Possibly.

Lately what I've been using it for is a first coat over white primer.

~Around 2:1 smoke:b lack, plus about 100 future and just washing that over the model before any painting. Gives a good mix of advantages between black/white priming.

Great responce Guys! I talked to Danny and he will now be accepting orders of any single bottle of Vallejo Model Color. Just place your order as you would for bitz or requested models

Andy, what do you mean by this. I would like to try this as I often find myself bouncing between diff. primer colors

Vallejo Smoke mixed with Vallejo Black at a 2:1 ration, I'd assume. It's a pretty nice wash. Add a drop of Future to cut the surface tension as always.

SWEET. My local Hobby store just started carrying the Vallejo model line, this on top of the fact that my Games Workshop distributor less than a mile from that place carries the game series means Ill never want for a tube of paint, any color any time.

Does CS have a color chart in the store? Its's a little hard to tell what the colors should look like from the web.
