    Ciao Fabrizio you are off to a great start.......Beautiful work and I really like the NMM effect!!! Bravo!!!!

    I tried it on my Falkar which is my first ever fantasy figure (will post pics soon) but kept not liking it so I reverted to the "old school technique" with printers inks and oils for the metals :eek:

    Tanti saluti da Malta.........

    Great progress.
    A way of painting was very easy to understand, and I could learn much.
    I'm looking forward to completion of your work very much.

    Ciao Fabrizio,

    You're doing a wonderful job on this figure. The leather work is particualrly nice. Could you explain what you mean by "NMM style"? I'm not familiar with this style of painting, but I like what you've done.

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it!
    About NMM, this is the first time that I try this technique, and I think it's very funny!
    Some information about NMM:

    NMM is the acronym for Non-Metallic Metal, the term referring to a miniature painting technique. It's the practice of using flat opaque colors to represent metal areas. The preferred method is usually metallic paints for metal since it is perceived as easier. NMM is considered a new technique in miniatures. The challenge with NMM is making a supposedly metal item painted in flat colour look "real". This is done with careful blending and an understanding of the way metal is affected by it's surrounding light sources.

    This is a link from my site, a Colors Chart with Vallejo references:

    Have a nice day!
