ALY MORRISON'S "BUTTERFLY" ADVENTURES IN THE WORLD OF WARGAMES AND TOY SOLDIERS

Aly's Brown Liquid

I thought that I would put the recipe for Aly's Brown Liquid here to save people hunting though all the old posts to find it...



                                         


Aly's Brown Liquid...


                                         


40% Agrax Earthshade, 40% Seraphim Sepia and 20% Lahmian Medium...
The final ingredient is a few drops of Drakenhof Nightshade...
The colour you are looking for is not quite Brown any more but not entirely Payne's grey.
I usually put in a drop at a time and check the colour on a piece of white plastic or paper.

  3. I have tried a similar artists oil mix…well diluted…on model AFV’s.
    It worked well… but took a while to dry.

    All the best. Aly

  5. Thread / topic necromancy incoming! I have used this and like it - so thanks, but where do you think it's true place is compared to "Marine Juice"...another composite wash which I believe is a mix of Nuln oil / Dark Tone, Reikland fleshshade and Lahmian medium?

    1. Thank you Simon…
      I haven’t tried ‘ Marine Juice’ so I can’t really make any comparisons…
      I may mix some up and try it out for myself.

      All the best. Aly
