How do you paint miniatures yellow? Yellow is one of the hardest colors to use well in miniature painting. This is because of three main reasons.
First, yellow acrylic paint often doesn’t provide an artist with good surface coverage. Multiple yellow paint layers are required for a smooth base coat.
Second, it is unclear what colors or mediums are best for shading yellow miniatures.
Finally, there are multiple ways to highlight the color yellow, and each method produces a vastly different result.
In this article, I show you the basics of how to paint the color yellow using “The King in Yellow” miniature from the Cthulhu Wars board game.
