as i recently found out about this little effect
when i started using dayglow pigments i had some experiences i want to
share with you.
At first you maybe never heard about dayglow pigments or colors.
- with this term i mean the color somehow glows under light, so with a
little light the color is much brighter than normal acrylic paints.
To get such dayglow paints with a good quality i decided to mix my own colors.
you need dayglow pigments, you can order them online (google for a shop
in your country) or you can buy them in artist shops. But inform
yourself about the quality of the pigments, in miniature painting you
want the highest quality possible.
like to add a little drop of matte varnish and i put it inside a
vallejo styled dropper bottle for easier use. I also add a small steel
ball (from a BB gun) to improve the mixing ability.
Now for the interesting part... practical use ;)
After this step i gave the balls 2-3 coats of gloss varnish to give them a glassy look
I hope you liked this tutorial and you try out this technique!
