Hi all, this little tutorial shows one way to paint a gambeson with enamels.

1st step: Cover the whole figure with primer (I use black)

2nd step: Paint the gambeson in light grey

3rd step: This step is not necessary but after step 4 it creates a dirty look and will help you at step 5: Highlight the gambeson with pure white

4th step: Cover it with a brown wash (I use "Vallejo acrylic wash", Colour: Sepia) so the light grey and the white will look dirty and shines through the highlighted areas.

5th step: Mix white and brown to get a dirty-looking white and highlight the gambeson again. Step 3 helps you now to work faster because you needn´t paint very accurate, so your mixed colour won´t become dry while working.
