COLOUR RECIPES: INFINITY HACKER'S 'TRANSPARENT' HOLO SCREEN

This post is in a way 'on demand' as lately I got an unprecedented number of questions regarding the paints used on the 'transparent' Hacker's screen with which one of my NOMADS: CORREGIDOR lvl 4,5 miniatures is equipped. Taking this opportunity I will also add a mini-tutorial of how to prepare such holo-screen on the bottom of this post.


HAKCER'S HOLO SCREEN:
White (inner site symbols),
Mephiston Red (outer side symbols),
Coelia Greenshade Wash (GW),
White (lines on the edges),
Gloss Varnish (GW),*
*For more transparency I maker smooth layer without brush strokes visible - I use a lot of Varnish to achieve that.



MINI-TUTORIAL: HACKER'S 'TRANSPARENT' HOLO SCREEN

That would be fast - just use scissors to cut a small piece of plastic bottle. I preffer Coca Cola Zero's bottle, but anything thin and transparent will do. After shaping the piece put a small hole in it - that would be the place into which you will glue the miniature's fingers so that the screen will hold firm. The secret revealed - go and spread the word!


Steel for humans...
Silver for monsters...
Brush for miniatures ;)
