Citadel Inks
« on: January 24, 2013, 02:13:08 PM »

I tried doing a search for this but, my internet is terribly slow at the moment and every iteration of "think" came up when searching ink, so please merge the topic if its been discussed.

I was wondering if anyone has tried using the Citadel range of inks for panel lines? After doing a wash the other night it seems you are just thinning the enamel down to the same consistency of the inks.

well you could try Artist Ink as well as oil paint thinned...
hence I don't see why Citadel wash wouldn't work - just careful with the base coat I guess

FWIW here are couple of shots when I tested the Oil paint washing.

For the record I did mean Citadel Washes, rather than the out of production Inks

my understanding is it's basically thinned paint that you can use for washing straight out of tub

This.

Pretty much all products that are marketed as 'washes' are just thinned down paint that is the right consistency or thereabouts for applying washes.

you can use them straight from the tub, but I would thin them a little further with water before using them ..... straight from the tin, they are kinda strong in colour ... great if you want to add colour quickly, but best to build up the thinner colour that way you can control it better ...
for panel lines, I would think they are too strong... unless you want stark lines .....

I dislike them for panel lines because they're more of a pain to clean up than enamels. Other than that, they're great for that kind of work. That's mainly how I use the washes on the minis.

I often use the Artist Ink for that. It's easy to apply over Gunze/Tamiya Acrylics, wipe and top coat~

The inks works well as a wash but really enjoyed the Tamiya Panel line accent color for pin washing panel lines. Saves mixing/ waist and what not as it's premixed and the brush is in the bottle like cement.

I wouldn't use Citadel Washes in the same way as an enamel wash but they are great for creating oil leak and stain effects.

This is true. They're a solid choice for any kind of staining or discoloration.
