Quick and Easy Basing

As much as we all like beautifully detailed bases on our figures it’s not always possible or necessary to do any more than the most basic textured finish.

A good alternative to the usual sand finish that most of us rely on is to use a textured Gel. You can find these alongside the acrylic paints in most shops selling artists materials. My personal favourite is Galeria Black Lava Texture Gel, which at under £10 for a 250ml tub is excellent value.

Simply paint it onto your base; wait 30 minutes and it’s all good to paint over. Simple, cheap, quick and effective.
