    Hi guys,

    do you have tips to paint hair??
    Using Humbrol paints.
    I need blond hair for my Celtic Warrior.

    It is a very long time that I don't use humbrols so I can't remember the every colour's name.
    I would try with a base of a light yellow and after it is very well dry you can make some washes with a medium brown to tone down the yellow and go into the creases.When you have obtained the right (for you) tone you can make with a very diluited colour some very tiny and little lines to make the hairs.

    Hi Erwin

    Like Marco, I haven't used Humbrol much for a while now, but my original fair hair mix would have been Mid Stone, lightened with Lemon Yellow and a tiny touch of mid green. I know Shep Paine's fair hair mixes often included green, and I find it works for me in oils too

    Hope this helps
