Copious washes have been applied to FD's bearded devils. In the shaded basecoat technique this is done to establish and intensify shadows. The trick is to do it without simultaneously obliterating the mids and highlights from previous steps (damage, yes... obliterate, no).
I used two different washes (a GW Violet/Greenshade mix and Vallejo Flesh Wash) on the shield. These were allowed to run together while wet for a grungy, rusty effect.
I quite like the result. Now to see if I can avoid slopping paint on it going forward (fingers crossed, everyone).
Next up: touchups and refinements to the aforementioned mids and highlights.
