You can paint whit oils,enamels,acrylic and watercolor.
You can do prime coat, washes, dry brushing and more.
I agree with Paul what do you mean?

I can only speek from my self every one prefer there own methods.
I wash the figure in soap end then use a primer Vallejo Acrylic Polyurethane - Primer Grey 200ml something like that.
The wash is for the colour to STICK more and remov chemicals from casting.
I then ley a coat of primer natural a light colour, in this stage you can check for flaws.
The primer makes the paint move out better and make the colour stick.

then i start with the face with oil colours
I like oils the best cause it' easy to work with and to give nice shades and lights.
The finishing step in face is to paint the eays and eaybrown it' probably easiest to wait for the face colour to dry.

The artist oil colour dry between 12hours - 2-days

The Vallejo Model Colour paint's is pretty good they dry fast and can be diluted with water
And airbrushed, i use them for the detail or enamels the orginal hobby paint.

If you dont use a primer it can be good to paint out the ground colours specialy if you paint with oils otherwise
The base like metal figur will stand out.

Last on the figure when dried you can use pigments brushed with a big flat brush
To give a dusty look, or use withe pigment on clothes.

Figures that are in skin color whit out flaws
like these http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=206
You can give a wash with turpentine and brown and then paint high lights whit light skin color.

Also metal figures with out flaws you can paint the helmets this way and chain mail to.

Last bit putt your figure infront off a mirror check for flaws and errors

Well i can go on and on it's best to experiment self

I forgot about a important thing the brushes take good care of them.
Wash them with sope and put the brush in the mouth, shape the tip after you used them.

They are going to last longer and you dont end up like me that got 100brushes

Zitat von Jager

You as well ? Mine don´t seem to last more than a couple of weeks...I follow all the rules...two lots of cleaning water, one with a bit of washingup liquid, putting in the mouth and twisting to get a good tip...and and and...

Well i got some good brushes, but my mind tells me to buy more always nice with a new brush.

I like synthetic brushes because is little hard and good for detail.

The enamels humbrol i suggest dont buy them or similar product, your not supposed to pick up paint with a brush but you do it anny way. After a short while the enamels dry up, you think! This is not so hard you force your finest brush through the dried paint. the brush isn't so nice anymore.
