Are you looking for a fast and easy way to paint the armor panel lines on your miniatures? The thin, narrow panel lines you find on miniatures like Gunpla, Warhammer 40k armored units, or military scale model vehicles, aren’t easy to paint. For best results, the panel lines should be painted with a dark paint, a method also known as “dark lining”. While a long, thin bristled paint brush can help, what if I told you there was a faster way to dark line panels without needing a steady hand or fancy tricks?
In this post, I share how I use watercolor paints to quickly and easily dark line the panel lines on your models. This is also a great method to shade hard-to-reach recesses on your miniatures.
