It's Aurélie, I'm back with two Tyranid beasts from my latest commission, a Carnifex and a Trygon, painted with an intriguing colour shifting effect. Check out more pictures after the jump.




I got the colour shifting paint from a local craft store. It's also known as "flip effect paint", "flip flop paint", or "chameleon paint". I applied the paint with an airbrush in about three thin layers over a black basecoat.


If you can't source the paint locally, GreenStuffWorld also offers a range of "colorshift" acrylic paints, specifically made for tabletop and scale models. I haven't tried them yet though.

Have you experimented with colour shifting paints yet? How do you like the effect on my Tyranids? Leave your reaction or comment below!
