Digital Camo
Posted by Dadeo911 on Monday, June 04, 2018 10:41 PM

Does anyone know of a tutorial on the more modern pixilated camo for figures? I am looking (hoping) for 1/35.

I searched in YouTube on "paint digital camo on figures" and found this one, which looks like it could help get started:

Hope that helps!

Thank you Baron.

I tried Google, Yahoo, Bing and YouTube.  Obviously you have better choices of how to search.

Take care,

Chris

I recall seeing somewhere decals for this camo for 1/35 figures.

I tried the decal camo a ways back.

It was a frustrating experience.  At least in 1:35/54mm.  Figures, almost be definition, as highly irregular surfaces.  Decals sometimes to not respond well to such surfaces.

"Best" (which is not saying much) approach was to spray the figure in gloss white overall.  That's mostly so you can see where the decals are going.

Then, work with small squares and strips--I was using 5x5mm and 5x10mm.  Also a lot of setting & solvent solution.  In progress, the figures looked very much like patchwork, which they were.

Never really was satisfied wit hthe rult, either.  Put three coats of clear flat on top.  This allowed some use of shadowing effects, just not much.  Added another coat of flat over that.  The set to flesh tones and web gear.  The layers of lat gave some protection for cleaning up uh-ohs, just not a lot.

End result was less than good, even for my ham-fisted skills. 

They never were much worthy of photography, and the figures went astray in my last move, to no great loss. 

Such is life.
