what you'll need

here's my beloved Tamiya Clear Red (TCR) and my 2 stipple brushes
1 large for vehicles one small for std fig, they are basically old brushes with the bristles cut down shorter :wink:
stippling is basically "stabbing" the bristles at the area.
i quickly knocked up a chain axe to show what it looks like on a mini and the white plasticard so you can see the effect clearly :wink:

STAGE 1


first off take some TCR straight out of the pot and stipple it over the area quite thickly (the next stage will take some off)

STAGE 2

TCR has a thicker consistancy to normal paint and doe's start to congeal (like real blood) quite quickly.
once you have done stage 1 wait about 30-40 seconds for the TCR to start to get tacky then go over it agin with you stipple brush to give it some texture.
after this give the blood 5 mins to dry off or you'll just take most of the red off with the next bit :?

STAGE 3
first up we need to mix some darker "blood" up to give it some realism (it's a bit bright at the min)
here's sort of the ratio you'll need
I use a little GW Black ink to darken it (rather than black paint that can dull down the glossy wetness of it)

You'll have to experiment untill you get this colour, you want a nice dark red gore colour.


Then it's just a case of repeating stages 1 and 2 with the darker colour
just be sure not to totally cover all the lighter red up :wink:
Here's the Dark red 1st application.


STAGE 4
Here's the end result with the dark red re-stippled for texture.

Well there you go really simple and i think VERY effective.



Enjoy!

Ian

That is awesome. I think I might have to use it in the future.

it's sort of become my trademark (and an inside joke in certain areas of the painting community)
you can see it on my archon as well

This is darn awesome. I already read your tutorial on bolterandchainsword and I'm really looking forward to use it on my army. I want a carpet made out of blood for Christmas. :3

Sweetness! Thanks for the tips! I feel a bit of an idiot that I didn't know about Tamia Clear Red before, but I saw a Tyranid project over on the 5th Dimension where the painter used a very minimalist palette of whites, greys, sepias, and blacks. Onto this he added Tamia clear red, and the effect was...gruesome, to say the least:

5-th-dimension.blogspot.ca/2012/03/tyranids-tyranids-and-more-tyranids.html

One question: as I've never used tamia before, is this clear red stuff water soluble?

it is water soluble but i wouldn't recommend using your best brushes with it.

Great tutorial, easy to follow and rediculously cool effect. I'm definatly trying thin on a non DE project I'm doing. The black ink is genious by the way.

Lonewolf, you're a legend as far as I'm concerned, just tried this this evening and really pleased with the results, sure I need more practice but it's a damn sight better than anything I've tried before.
See p3 of the project log in my sig for the results!

glad it helped the more you play with it the more you can achieve.
for example mix it with a bit of 2 part epoxy glue to create some dripping blood effects.

nice looking bladevanes BTW Wink
